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.

LilBeerDoctor (3581) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle (bottled in 2005). Pours a clear light orange with no head. Aroma and flavor of tartness, super sour green grapes, wood, the usual barnyard funk, bitter melon rind. Finish almost tastes like wine. Tasty, but soooo sour! It took me about 2 hours to finish one wine glass full of this!

37.5 cL bottle, cheers Jeppe! Pours hazy to murky orange with a fully diminished white head. Classic dry Cantillon barnyard aroma with a light citric touch. Flavour is nicely balanced between fruity grapes notes and a solid acidic/citric brett dryness. Tart fruity flavour following with a solid wooden note. Nice citric bite in the finish.

Fin (8857) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2008
Bottle, picked this up from Dranken Geers, Gent, consumed 18-04-08 Golden moving towards an orangey colour, some haze but any head that was there had disappeared by the time I’d turned around an put another CD on. Has a gentle sweetness ’honeylike’ that counteracts the sourness marvellously. There is a very wine like character to this and it really is quite wonderful, the usual full on sharp and very tart assault on the tastebuds is slapped down big style by the grapes. I feel like I should be laid out sipping a glass of this on a grassy bank whilst a slow moving babbling brook gently provides a nice coolness to the warming sun and with the chattering of birds in the background.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2008
Shit, my rating was erased. Anyway, I got a lot of oak out of this in the aroma, some sweet grape and classic gueze-like nuances. Flavor is sweet grape, sour gueze, some malt and sugar. Very mouthpuckeringly sour and finishes crisp and oaky. Very solid.

Bottle [2005], bought @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph.
[thank you, Jeremy]
Pours hazy yellow with an impressive creamy white head that disappears almost instantly. Aroma has citrus, funk, tart grapes, barnyard and light flowery. Light carbonation. Flavour is heavily citric tart at first, light moldy. Nice grape flavours and a good doughy character behind the tartness. Very white wine-ish.

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Re-rate 10/14: Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Arie. 2013 bottle. Cloudy yellow. Farty arma with lots of white grapes, some citrus and some barnyard. Sour flavor, lemony, with lots of white grapes and some barnyard. Medium-bodied, leaves the mouth very dry. Very good. 7/3/8/4/17=3.9

Re-rate 4/25/11: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks beerandbeyond. Slightly hazy golden. Aroma of oak, a bit of barnyard and lovely vinous fruitiness. Sour flavor with lemon, white wine and some barnyard. Smooth soft mouthfeel. Very good. 8/3/8/4/16=3.9

(3/12/08) Bottle at Bier Circus in Brussels. Hazy pale orange with a small white head. A unique vinous aroma with some Muscat grapes notes, some Lambic funk and nice fresh fruitiness. Dry sour flavor with some of the familiar citric tartness but also some white wine fruity (white grapes, apples, some peaches) tone that adds a very interesting aspect to the flavor. Medium-bodied. The back of the label pretty much sums it up "A delicate compromise between white wine and beer" – another successful experiment from Cantillon. 8/4/8/3/16=3.9

Thanks to Michael for this one. Gold body, and no head. Sour aroma, detection of apples. Flavor is sour, acidic, and bretty. Really quite delicious and a pleasure to share.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Murky yellow color with very little head. Aroma was sour, similar to vinegar (surprise surprise), and had a bit of astringency similar to grape skins. Tasted like sour, dry, grape skins and a bit of other funk. Light body and very little carbonation. This beer was on tap at the Maduro. I think I like it better than my score indicates, but it is what it is.
