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.

grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours cloudy yellow in glass with a head that fizzles away. Aroma is tart with some stank of barnyard funk. Slight woody undertones in the aroma but not very noticable. Not as tart as I experienced from other Cantillon selections. Light on the palate very drinkable and refreshing. Can get the grapes in the finish. Finished clean without an overwhelming dryness, the tart flavor washes away making you want more. Well done.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Version from 2005. Pours a cloudy summer-grain-yellow with a light white head. The aroma is like a stack of wet hay and with sourly pomelos and vanilla. The palate is very smooth and with a taste of green unmature green grapes. - Theres no sharp bitterness but a bitterness nore in the sweet end. The finish is long and slow with a nice fading sourness with a sparklin palate.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy straw gold with no head. Aroma is lacking grapes, nice tartness, musty, sweet, gueuze-ish aroma. Light, slightly sour, fairly tart, grape makes itself known toward the end. Just a little dry. Leaves a nice sweet coating when you lick your lips.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Pours a pale yellow with very little to no head, and lots of fizzy carbonation. Aromas of citrus and sour grapes. Flavor is funky sour citrus, I didnt taste much of the muscat grapes as I got in the nose. Overall a great lambic.

Il mio primo 5/5 su ratebeer. Non credo ce ne saranno molti; non credo. Però il 5/5 è una scelta programmatica, più che un risultato; è difficile accorgersi dell’eccellenza a posteriori, l’eccellenza è determinata in un istante, è l’unica vera valutazione in cui entra in gioco solo l’istinto, l’istinto e la completa soddisfazione di ogni senso. La Vigneronne di Cantillon è stato proprio questo per me, una soddisfazione completa, senza alcun difetto; e pensare che mentre la stappavo, mi chiedevo se fosse il caso di berla da solo, mi chiedevo se non sarebbe stato troppo in una serata così comune. La serata non è più comune, è una delle serate birrariamente più felici della mia esistenza. Questa Vigneronne è preziosa come una pietra rara, come un fiore sconosciuto. E’ la tipica birra... che dico birra, lambic! impeccabile, sofisticata, unico, però di cui berrei litri e litri senza stancarmi. Non ci sono parole. Forza Cantillon

LinusStick (3252) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Another winner by Cantillon. Aroma was nice and fruity. Sour white grapes with a hint of funk and wet blanket. Pour was a nice sparkly and bubbly light gold with a 2 finger white head. Looked like champagne. Taste was nice and tart in the front, with the sweet grapes just barely coming through. Medium acidity and little funk. Delicious and refreshing sour beer.

Bottle, shared at the Shenandoah Beer Throwdown. Pale yellow appearance, hazy, fizzy white head. Sour sweet grape in aroma. Flavor is champagne, sour, very tangy.
