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.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. Opaque yellow colour with a small white head. Funky fruity aroma with notes of citrus. Nice acidic flavour. A little bit unbalanced.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours orange/golden with an average size white head. Aroma of musty yeast, vinegar, citrus, acidic. The flavor is also acidic, musty yeast, fruit, moderate carbonation. Good brew.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2007
Pours still, hazy and yellow and leaves no top save a small with ring along the inside of the glass. Aroma is fruity (but not as much as I had expected), sour and not without the typical horse-like nose. When druk the bewrage fills your mouth with a dry sensation. It almost feels as if it literaly pulls the moist out of your tounge. And of course, there is loads and loads of acidity. Not as much grape in the taste as I thought it would be before the tasting, but in retrospect that might be a good thing.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Cork says 2004 - aged 3 years. Pours bright yellow/gold into a Tumbler. No head, but bright white hugs the rim. Bright white grape and lambic funkaromas. Sharp and tart upfront with a lasting dry, Gueuze finish. The grapes donít really stand out, but as close to wine as any beer Iíve tried. Would probably be a good cross-over for a dry white drinker...

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2007
The color was hazy, golden with orange hues. The head was thin, fizzy, and it disappeared quickly. There was barely any head. The aroma was muscadines, tart, fermented fruit, and sour. The flavor was VERY tart, sour muscadine grapes. After a few sips of this, my eyes started to water. The palate was thin/medium bodied. The finish was sour.

emacgee (4139) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Man alive I was not expecting this. My first Cantillon and boy was it a punch in the face. Split a 750 of this between four people. Poured a hazy orangey amber with almost no head (thin, white, quickly goes away). The aroma was sweet, slightly sour, showed the muscat. The flavor was extremely tart, almost unbearably so. It eclipsed Rodenbach Grand Cru in that respect. Very sour and tart, the muscat was apparent though. The palate was crisp and carbonated, very lively in the mouth.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle with cap and cork from Riverís Bend. Poured hazy copper orange color with a minimal head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate complex tart fruit yeasty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium sour fruit flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration. Refreshing brew.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle 75cl at the beerfestival at Buggenhout 2007. This version were bottled in 1999. No taste of grapes in it but still very tastful and still sour/

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle at Bier Circus, Brussels. Orangey amber, quite hazy, small white foam. Complex citrus aroma meeting mellower grapes. Flavours start lemony, woody character takes over, but the finish is quite smooth with hints of raisins and almonds. More mellow than other beers from Cantillon, but still rich and complex.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle. 2002 vintage. Pours cloudy gold. Looks quite rich. Very distinctive nose: sour, funk. Perhaps itís the bottling or the age, but I get notes of smoke and oak. Also some interesting maritime aromas: salt and sea spray. Quite firm and aggressive on the palate. Bracingly sour flavor. Quite acidic. A hint of oak. Whereís the muscat? Dig deeper... here are some sour grape notes. Finishes incredibly dry and sour.
