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.

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

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.

Pours a cloudy yellow-amber w/ carbonated burst of white foam that settles quickly. Some sediment. Soft, rounded, musty, vinous aroma of tannins, grapes, lemony citrus, & oak w/ notes of honey & caramel. Feel is light, astringent, & carbonated. Flavour sour & dry w/ a lingering tartness.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2008
Orange with no head - looks like orange soda. Aroma of grape and wood. Acid flavours - grape and lemon and some kind of nutty flavour too. The grapes are there in the background, like a whit wine protruding. But as always it’s pretty extreme from Cantillon - and my stomach already burns... ouch!

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Draught @ Ebenezer’s. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a hint of orange, no head. Aroma is very vinous - white grapes, slightly sweet, with a slight hint of vinegar. Taste is soft sourness, bit of vinegar and white grapes, with the vinegar sourness getting a bit more pronounced right before the finish. Finish is dry, fruity, white grapes come out a bit more to complement the softening sourness. Soft, slightly pillowy carbonation and light body.
