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.

MotherBrother (694) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2014
Pour hazy light orange, with a small white head. Aroma of grapes, orange peel, cantillon funkiness, barnyard, slight lemon, faint grapefruit notes, faint woddy/barrel notes. The taste is, of course, pretty darn sour, but has a surprisingly amount of fruity sweetness to it. - well done. Medium bodied, with a somewhat flat carbonation. - This is pretty tasty - Gotta make them Grapes do their thang..

BMMillsy (1371) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2014
750 ml bottle capped and corked from Tipples. Bottles November 23, 2012 and poured May 25, 2014. Pours hazy golden with a half finger fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately. Super musty dusty aroma, oak, funk, huge acidity and lacto, apricots, grape skins, a bit of vinegar, tart and sour smelling, very light vinous notes. Flavor is intensely acidic and sour, some floral notes on the tongue, citrus zest all the way through, dry oaky finish, and some lingering vinous warm left in the throat. Mouth puckering like whoah. As this warms it mellows a bit and the white wine notes become more present. Spritzy and prickly carbonation--lots of it--and light on the palate without sacrificing bold flavor. Super dry. Extremely clean and crisp. Good stuff.

thebsmitty (137) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with half an inch of bubbly white head that fades quickly into some wisps and a medium collar. Aroma is dry oakiness, white wine-like and a good earthiness. Taste is tart grapes, some vanilla and oak. High carbonation and low-medium body. Very tart overall and the grape plays a decent second string.

weihenweizen (1737) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Green 75cl bottle corked and capped poured into a tulip. Pours hazy light orange with very little head. Aroma is fruity, medium/light body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is really complex and fruity, citrus, tart, and white grapes. Enjoyed more than Mamouche, but less than Lou Pepe Kriek.
