COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vigneronne is a blending muscat grapes and lambic, the brewers and beer merchants produced the "druivenlambik" (grapes lambic). White grapes soaked in lambic. The fructose, which abounds in these fruits, enables us to make a beer which is more mellow than the Gueuze or the other fruit beers. The spontaneous fermentation, the ageing in the barrels for several years and the addition of grapes make it a distant cousin of certain white wines. Changed name from Druivenlambik in 1987.

Rask0lnikov (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2016
A bit hazy yellow colour. Almost no froth. Nice aroma of white wine, flowery hints, hints of horseblanket and grapes. Acidic beginning. Wine taste in the middle. Grapes and some sweetness in the end. Another phenomenal lambic. Wine-like. Long aftertaste. Very well balanced.

Garrold (3915) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Mig’s World of Wine, Brussels. Clear gold. Halo of white. Nose has fusty, creeping, damp, woody malts. Lots of punchily acidic white grape, by way of balance. Touch of honeyed sweetness in the background. Smells great. Taste has a soft sweetness. Gets dry, and grape juice earthy and tart. The mouthfeel is fantastic. Smooth, and rich, but clean and puckering al at once. Finishes mouth-wateringly tart, clean, and tangy. Drinking wine is something I rarely do these days, but this reminds me of some of my absolute favourites. Stellar.

mariuspoenari (1203) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2016
75cl bottle. Pours a semi-opaque orange with a white head that disappears quite quickly. Smells of balsamic vinegar and white grapes. Tastes very much like white grape vinegar, very light and with a low carbonation. Not much lambic funkiness going on, and a much mellow taste than other lambics, slightly tart and sour. A very pleasant surprise.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 Tasting at my place. Thanks for another great Lambic share from Maakun. Bloemig, bloesem, berm bloemen, fluitekruid en grassen. Druiven. Verder uiteraard zuur en paardenstal. Pride & Prejudice: the Beer. Backlog from 2015/05/26.

Quintessence 2016. Hazy pale golden with thin white head. Cow parsley, celery, nectar, floweriness and nutmeg. Very light sour, salty. Medium body, minerallike. Very supple. Nice feeling, great taste.

Douberd (4528) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
(Cantillon Vigneronne) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a Cantillon tasting glass, vintage 2014. ABV 5% Bright yellow colour on the body, nice haze in it, with almost one finger of white thin head on top, collapsing fast. Aroma of white grapes, quite fruity. Very inviting. Taste is nicely sour, with white grapes, peach, again quite fruity, old wood. Medium body with soft carbonation, pretty tart on the palate. Great.

Hoprider (360) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
Pours light hazy straw. Nice white foam on the edges of the glas. The nose has apples and lemon, some hay, some candy apple, yellow raisin and even a hint of apricot. Awsome nose Taste is light fruity with elderflover sweetness initially turning mineral and turns lemon bitter. The hint of fruit in this lambic is brilliant. Mouthcoating and long lasting, dry aftertaste. I got maximum sourness and acidity in the aftertaste which was great. Love this one!
