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.

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.

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.

Had this bottle at Stone Brewery (stole a little bit from the girlfriend). This is a funky smelling beer. Had some nice fruit in it, apple and grapes. Tasted like a shocktart almost, it was one heck of a sour beer. Not overpowering though, I thought it was very good.

Dull hazy peach orange yellow color, light white head. Rather sharp aroma; soft cheeses. Soft texture, like regular gueuze or 1900 Grand Cru. Lot of lactic acidity; dried out oak, hops. Very different from the last bottle I had of this; much softer and more refined; juicy. Moderate almost light sourness; lemon juice, hint of orange zest. Tart grape skin texture in the finish.

Dull foxy orange/amber color; thin spritzy head that fizzles away to nothing. Ultra funky aroma, cheese, feet, sulfur, grapes, and when I was taking off the cap there was this black gunk on it that was positively rancid. but in a good way. Extremely sour, massive dry out effect, grapey aftertaste. In retrospect I probably should have split this 750 with someone; this just killed my stomach halfway through. just one of those beers that’s so good it hurts.

Bottle, cork has ’Bottled in 2004’, so, this is about four years old, pours a clear gold with orange and amber mixed in that was sparkling, there were some floaties hanging around (I tried to pour carefully), pour had a few white bubbles that kind of made a ring in the glass, I saw some real fine carbonation in this bubbling up but it was scarce, has da funk of a barn, a wood ash fragrance (not smokey), sour and wood aromas, initially faint sweetness, grape, apple and light fruit flavors but this is over run quickly by the tart and sour in the finish that lingers on the palate, has a dry wine touch to it and a good sour bite that left a tingle in my oral cavaties, some grape skins on the tongue, has a medium or so mouth feel, certainly is not on the heavy side, I may try to find a bottle with less age on it that which may have more grape flavor.

Bottle, 75 cl. Yesterday @ home, with William ... Yellow-golden color, with almost no head. Aroma sour, wood, farmhouse, and fruits. Medium body. Taste sour lambic, woody, very light sweet at the finish. Good ! (but we like 3 fnteinen a little more)

On draft at Max’s 72 Hours of Belgian. Tried on a whim, happy I did. Grapey, but in a very good way. Hazy cream soda pour. The grapes give it a strong white wine push into the traditional lambic tarness, yeastiness, even mustiness. More sweetness than one would expect.
