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.

i was at the beer store and saw this and thought, hell, why not i’ve got a job now, let’s celebrate. pours a cloudy orange with a white head that vanishes as soon as i finish pouring. the aroma is sweet by cantillon standards some band aid, sweaty wet fur smell and the grapes add that touch of sweet. this one does not make my jaws clench like others have, grape taste comes through nd really round out the acidity well. this went well with the frozen pizza i spiced up. spicey food and this beer pair well in my opinion. this reminded me of some dry ciders i’ve had.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2006
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from Cambrinus in Bruges. Quite thick and syrupy in texture compared to their other offerings. The grapes are pretty clear in both the aroma and the flavour. Typical Cantillon stuff. Lemon, grapfruit and a little more funk in the nose than usual. Very cloudy body, no head at all. A little sweeter and not quite so tart as you would expect. Must be the grapes taking the edge off it. Obvious white wine notes. Tartness comes through for the wonderful dry finish. Not their best but damn fine stuff all the same.

Nicely acidic, with a subtle touch of grape flavour. Girl who was over said it smelled like vomit. And tasted like vomit.

NosirIwont (1938) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Complex sweet, sour and fruity aroma with a strange thing to it, which I can’t put my finger on. Friend of mine described it as ‘unwashed goat’ – don’t know if I agree with this exact description, but I get the idea… it’s not a very nice smell, Fortunately it tend to ‘loosen up’ the longer you smell it. Still really not my thing. Flavour is sour and fruity. Notes of melon. Has similarities with white wine. Finish is dryish and bitter, but it’s not a hoppy bitterness. Interesting beer, but again – not my thing. 11-07-06.

Gorbalev (2905) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
My bottle shared with many fine folks Canada Day ’o6. Not sure on the vintage. Lovely aroma - really funky lambic with hint of sour grape - I sniffed this one for a while, it really was intoxicating (not in a I’m getting drunk sort of way of course). Murky hazy dark yellow appearance, small bubbles, not really any head to speak of. Wow, super tart on first sip! Nice mix of lambic and grape skins. Funky, earthy, and so quenching and drinkable. I love the complex beers I have been able to try from these guys, and I love how I have warmed up them - I would have turned my nose up to this 3 years ago.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Shared with GregClow, tupalev, DougShoemaker, mds, Radek and others - tupalev’s bottle. Murky pale orange with a small white head. Muted sour funky-yeasty aroma, plenty of tart lemon/orange bitterness - nice. Taste is also not surprisingly sour, yeasty, funky and woody; the bitterness (and a hint of dark fruit) must come from the grape skins - not as complex as some, but excellent balance. A tad weak-bodied, but nicely lively and acidic, with a long, ultimately bitter/tart/sour fruit finish. A very easy-drinking Cantillon and a nice refreshing palate cleanser to finish off another highly successful tasting.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2006
SImply splendid. Tasted on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. It is what I wish white wine tasted like. Boldly sour and spritzy. Random fruit flavors and aromas dominated by the grape notes. very refreshing.
