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.

yngwie (13432) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2006
Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Yellow-orange, unclear, with a minimal white head. The aroma is sour, white wine-like and with notes of barnyard. Lemony and sour flavor. The mouthfeel is thin and flat as well as astringent and palate-cleaning. Intensely sour, nice beer. (061028)

fonefan (34777) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy yellow brown color with a large head that quickly disappears. Tart, grape (vindruer), yeasty aroma. Extremely sour. Grape was detectable only as a sour, underripe grape juice aftertaste.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Cloudy light gold with light orange highlights and a thin white head. Nose-tingling sourness and distinct lambic character in the aroma with only a hint of fruit. Dry and bracingly tart--not particularly vinous or grapey--the fruit character comes through very neutrally--mainly as a sidenote to the lambic fermentation character (which is itself quite powerful). Light body with a lot of acidity provides for a quick, clean finish with multi-layered sourness.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2006
750mL bottle, 2005 vintage. Murky yellow-orange with a burst of effervescence that dies down to a thin film of head. Muskiness; horseblanket and rain-soaked cow pasture, with an underlying acetic tinge. Acetic sourness dominates the flavor profile, with a pantina of horsey muskiness. Some sharp tannic grape character breaks through in the finish, with residual must and tartness. Mouthfeel is light, very dry.

Cloudy, yellow brown with a large head that quickly disappears. Tart, apply, yeasty aroma. Extremely sour. Grape was detectable only as a sour, underripe grape juice aftertaste.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2006
750ml. Bottle. Purchased at Hight Times Wine Cellar in Costa, Mesa CA. I love Cantillon brews, after visitng the brewery I’ve wanted to try everything that has every left that space and I was glad to finally un cork this. The beer pours a light hazy orangish yellow. There is a light head that fades to almost nothing. The aroma is subtle and slightly sweet with a grape tinge. The brew tastes very much like a slightly altered gueze. If I was tasting this blind I might be convinced this was a gueze, but the finish and aftertaste certainly have a grape taste that shine through. Drinkable, but tart, not recommended for a lambic novice, if your a pro dive in and don’t come up for air anytime soon.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
The aroma had moldy cheese, funk, spices, and a slight flower note. The beer poured a yellow color with thin lasting head and slight lacing. The flavor had soury light fermented fruit, cheese, spice, and slihgt flowers. The mouthfeel was light and well carbonated.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Aroma was of a musky, sour white wine, astutely acidic but not too powerful. Interestingly, when I poured the dregs into the glass (something I wouldn’t normally do with lambics, but I’d already mistakenly poured about half in there so I figured what the hell), the aroma became almost completely masked. The pour (before the dregs) was a clear, peachy-yellow with zero head; very unexciting. Funky and sour in the mouth, a pretty strong sourness but not IMO enough complexity and a completely non-existant finish. All flavor dissappeared from this brew before it was even down. Still wreaked hell on my stomach, though. The grape was slightly noticable and afforded the beer more pronounced white wine characteristics than it’s bretheren, but it didn’t really do much for the overall experience of the beer. I’d prefer a gueuze.

feedmec00kies (49) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2006
light honey color, no head. really funky, damp wood, barnyard and cheese kind of smells, with a grapey, wine-y scent. quite tart, with white wine notes and a bit woody; also a bit of a green, vegetable-like taste i couldn’t put my finger on (perhaps the grape skins? sour apples maybe?). very, very dry. good, but although i love sour beers, i felt that the sourness became a bit overpowering at times.
