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.

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 (4859) - 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.

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.

Very good brew, the muscat grapes are very subtle, but kinda lends a light taste of grape skins to the finish. Good level of sourness and acidity give the usualy dry cantillon feel. Lightly tart and fruity in the finish. You get more of the grapes in the aftertaste, sour and tart with a wine like finish.

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2007
On tap at Brouwerís Belgian fest. OK--I see what they mean about this approaching wine. This is a very sour, unusual beer. Never had anything quite like it. A golden brew, looks nice in the 6 oz. glass (which looked an awful lot like a wine glass to me) they served it in. I probably wonít go for it again, but itís an impressively sour and interesting effort.

DocLock (7913) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle from Caponeís. Hazy orangy dark straw pour with minimal off-white head. Aroma of tart funky fruit, including pear, apple, and white wine notes. Tastes very fruity and tart, yet doesnít seem as tart as some Cantillonís Iíve had, with the funky tartness combined with the apple and pear notes all the way through.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Pale orange pour with cream colored swirls. Sizeable white head is nearly instantly vanishing. Lacing thin, but nearly full coverage. Aroma is sweeter than most Cantillon offerings, a melange of grape notes that include muscat, green unripened, sun-baked pinot noir and musty, moldy ones as well. All this is but a minor hint of fruitiness, though itís an addition well recieved and complimentary. Tangible Cantillon yeast punch and barnyard notes are wholly evident, similar to the gueuze. Lemon rinds and wheat malts are noted. Flavor is slightly toasty and tastes young and slightly underdeveloped, a stark contrast to the carbonation level(very low). Extremely acidic with light to moderate sweetness. Finishes acidic and with some balance for such a sour beer, sweetness lingering and relaxing some otherwise brutish acidity. Palate is light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated and mouth-puckering. Sharp tannic notes increase the bite. Intense.

Tranquillity (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2007
Colour of peach, no head. Sour apple cider and grapes in the aroma. Taste apple, plum, grapes and even grapefruit, wood and lime. Fantastic nectar-like moouthfeel.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Slightly hazy, pale body with no head. The aroma is heavy horseblanket, lemon and yogurt. The flavor has a touch of sweetness, lots of tart with lemon, blue cheese, vinous, oak and funk. Medium/light body is very soft and nice with a tart finish.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2007
From a 750mL Bottle. Pours a hazy golden peach color with a bubbly, quickly dissipating head of bright white. Relatively still in appearance, but disturbance generates a shimmer of fine bubbles. Signature Cantillon sourness in the aroma, with the muscato grape sweetness clearly evident underneath. A nice added touch of floral tangelo notes and brie cheese add a nice complexity thats spiced with a crack of white pepper. Light bodied, mildly carbonated mouthfeel. Some cheese rind funky flavors start out right away, along with some sauvingon blanc tannins and a bit of dry oak. Lots of peppery spice. An adequate amount of acidic dryness starts off up front, but sadly grows a bit thin as the flavors are left to linger. Needs a bit more carbonation to give it that crisp, biting edge. Finishes with a sour smack of pomegranite rind.
