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.

FullObs (133) - Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2012
750ML Bottle ( most recent batch- guessing 2011 bottle date). Cloudy yellow pour into a ballon glass delivers a very small head. Earthy and fruity with mild grape presence and a lemony finish. This is a pretty mild sour by Cantillon standards - at least when fresh. Very smooth and dinkable. Refreshingly good but not my favorite of their offerings.

Mjollnir (384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2014
750mL bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a thin ring of foam. Slightly malty aroma, funky, acidic, slightly toasty, not much wood. Slightly fruity, medium tartness, citrus peel bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, slightly thick with a lasting finish.

Brouwerij (887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy apricot orange with rapidly settling white head and no lace. Aroma is quite funky, barnyard, horse blanket, oaky and vinegar. Flavor is mildly tart, floral, buttery oak, funky, grape, dried apricot and peach, with a a lingering tart, buttery oak finish. Fruit and sugars compliment the tart and funky character nicely. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium body, and lightly dry finish.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 7, 2014
On draft at the trappist. The acidity is on the high side, musty grape notes, green apple aroma, bright lemony acidity. This is a tasty beer, but a touch harsh.

Bottle picked up at the brewery, shared with some others at a course in Lueben. Hazy yellow with no head. Aroma of wood and wine. Flavour is tart, lemon and a touch of white wine. Fizzy and dry tart finish.

bursprak (289) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2014
Shared 75 cl bottle. Bottled in october 2013 so quite fresh. Pours light hazy golden with some lacings. Acidic aroma with grapes and lemon. Taste is not really tart at all. Some barnyard ad lots of grapes.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2014
Fresh 75cl bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is grapes, citrus, acidic, some wood, plums and brett. Moderate sour and light to moderate sweet. Very deep, compex flavour. Smells incredibly good. The moderate sourness, wild yeast and fruitiness combined is very well done. Compared to the 3 fonteinen fruit lambics, my opinion is less fruitiness and more lambic. Not necessarily a bad thing, just different. I’m just glad I have another 3 glasses of this one to enjoy. More fruit in the finish than in the aroma. Medium bodied with slick texture. Great stuff.
