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.

AdamChandler (3589) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2012
2011 Vintage 75CL bottle. Enjoyed at home with my girlfriend.

A - Mild pop of the cork and the carbonation appears at the pour but quickly settles to appear still. No lacing at all. Cloudy blood orange color. Bronze and gold. Very cloudy.

S - Lots of Brett, horse blanket and citrus funk on the nose. Hint of balsamic vinegar.

T - Very sweet citrus. Lemon and Tangerines come to mind. Lots of oak and more sweetness at the finish like a more acidic honeysuckle taste.

M - Light body and almost no carbonation. Doesn’t linger at all.

O - It’s a lot more sour than I thought it would be but not as complex as I had hoped. Drinkable as the base lambic is so delicious but the grapes don’t add much.

May be old bottle but it’s supposed to get better with age, no Brett no real tartness just stale olive oil and woody cheese. Just not what I am used to from cantillon. Will try again to re rate.

MacBoost (1518) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle split with brother. Pours a light orange/lemon color with a white head. Aromas of funky lemons and horse cheese. Taste is decidedly tart. Flavors of bacterial horse vagina, grapevine chewiness. Yes. This beer is good.

Ysok02 (369) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2015
Une superbe lambic au nez puissant et complexe, alliant des notes de lambic à celles du raisin frais, la bouche est tout aussi réussie avec du fruit, de la tension, de la longueur et un équilibre parfait. Une bière proche de la frontière avec le vin. Un régal

VDuquerroux (634) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle, 75cL. Home. An orange yellow opaque beer with a medium white head ; poor retention. Aroma of smoke (nose), wood, fruits acid, barnyard. Light sweet, medium dry sour after a sharp beginning ; really drinkable ; great balance. Light to medium body, average texture, average to soft carbonation, sour lasting fruity finish. Overall, delicious ! Very fruity, nice sourness & very drinkable.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy golden yellow pour with a quickly dissipating bubbly white head, aroma has apple and lemon rind, taste has some tart grape action, straw, lemon zest, some hints of grain, damn fine.

Pours a murky golden with slight foamy white head. Aroma is vinous with slight funky hay, citrus and apple. Taste is medium pleasant sour, tart green apple, green grape, vinous with some mellow barnyard funk.

CraftBeerNick (1252) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle at home in garden with the Beast, 6th June 15. This pours fairly clean and clear, good sparkle to start with and a small head. Aroma is vinous, funk, fruit, straw, barrel. Taste is vinous, slight sour, barrel, wood, damp cellar. As the beer warms it changes character, less bubbles, less sour, the malts come through, really mellow with a good taste of the base lambic shining. Great multi faceted lambic.

Bottle thanks to Damian and Lona. Pours a hazy golden with a ring of creamy colored head. Aroma of tartness and fruit with a nice bit of funk. Taste of the same with great carbonation.

Thought I’d had this before but I guess not had at WTWBA. Nose is light Fu ky wood and some citrus. Tastes of orange, wet wood, some white wine, vinegar, and compost in a good way. Decent beer but not a wow me.
