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.

Nose of grapes, funk. Unfiltered golden color with a minimal head. Beautiful carbonation profile. Green grapes throughout, funk - Well balanced! Really enjoyable/ drinkable. Delicate flavor profile - almost a sparkling wine, but less dry and sweet. Really enjoyed this one on multiple levels. Will age other bottle for a few years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy App

Bottle at Chez Moeder. Pours a murky golden yellow light orange color. Aroma is quite tart, apricots, fleshy fruit. Flavor is a good blend of tart and sweet, with nice grape character. Wonderful.

Bottom of the bottle. Very cloudy dirty yellow. Fruity, lightly funky aroma. Tart, citrus fruit, lemon, a bit of grain and funk toward the end. It’s alright.

Hazy, peachy yellow colour. It’s sharp and tangy but not overly so. Plenty of fruity grape sweetness balances it well.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Orangy color with close to no foam. The smell is amazing. Sour anticipation runs down your throat when you smell it. Apple and stuff in the nose too. The sourness in the taste is enormous paired with a fine carbonation (wait a halftime or two, to let it decay to a certain degree). Grapes apple and fruitiness in general with a dry sour finish. The aftertaste is a bit doughy. There is almost sweetness underneath the sour taste. Great beer indeed.

Beautiful blend of sour and fruity. Not for the uninitiated, though. A bit too foamy at first, but settles down.

SinH4 (1397) - Garching, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Vintage 2012. Hazy orange color with a relatively big white head. Aroma of grapes and rhubarb. Quite a sweet bite there. Great funk. Taste is funky, sour and dry. With a distinct fruity grape character. Quite the carbonation there as well. Great! - Vintage 2004, courtesy of Toni at Zwanze Day 2015: The general character applies, but the acidity has become stronger. A mind-boggling mixture of white wine mellowness and dry sourness - lots of character!

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 750 ml bottle @ Tuulensuu
Yellow to orange beer, with little white head. Almost clear without yeast, hazy and finally totally opaque murky with sediment. Aroma has peach, citrus, grainy malts, barnyard and nuts. Flavor is fruity, walnutty, barnyardy and grapey. Palate is quite thin with strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness and strong Cantillon sourness which is a bit tamed by the grapes. Aftertaste is has citrus and grapes. A juicy, crisp and refreshing lambic, not too sour.
