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.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle solan: pours cloudy orangey yellow no head small white line around glass. Aroma is sour amd Funky, fresh very tart apple, flower blossoms, honey, peppery, earthy, just fantastic and complex. Flavor is very sour but with plenty of flavor again with pepper, honey, tart tart apple and hints of earthy flowers. The most sour Cantillion yet. Awesome

Ambro206 (330) - ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Birra dal colore oro scarico e l’aroma soave. Si porta nel bicchiere tutto il bouquet tipico delle uve moscato con le quali é prodotta. Al naso si avvertono fiori, miele, limoni e uva. In bocca la birra è delicata, bilanciata e, con la sua leggera frizzantezza ed il corpo sfuggente, di estrema bevibilità.

ajnepple (4659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2016
3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Hazy, pale, dull orange appearance with a small head. Funky yeast, vinous notes and sour grapes in the aroma. Similar flavor, funky, dank, fruity and mildly tart with dull carbonation and white wine finish. Good, but a little underwhelming from this brewery.

Zlotta (1197) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
0.75 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in November 2015. Hazy, golden yellow with a thin, fluffy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sourish-fruity, moderately funky aroma of lemon, white grapes, rhubarb, oak and some leather. Sour, fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, white grapes, green apples, rhubarb and oak, followed by a medium long, tart finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and rather astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Indeed quite mellow compared to other Cantillon produces I’ve had so far, less sour and less wild, but that lets it stand out a bit. Maybe also not that complex, but balance and drinkability are top-notch.

Tap at Akkurat. Hazy orange color with small white head. Lightly tart citrus and oak aroma and taste, some grapes present but they are somewhat subtle.

Vignale (2986) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2016
Gammal anteckning (2011). Flaska från Ölbutikken Köpenhamn på den tiden det fortfarande gick att få tag på Cantillon hyffsat enkelt. Inge större skillnad från den vanliga geuzen men visst kan man anan druvorna någonstan. Torr, lätt oxiderad, fat, syrliga äpplen, fuktigt trä, lite grape, aningen funkig/stallig lätt sötma, rejäl syra men i bra balans. Riktigt gott.

Mesjasz (703) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle, 2013 vintage. Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma of leather, barnyard, white grapes and medical phenols. Very interesting, deep and unique. Taste is medium sour, dry but also some small sweet note. Flavor is funky and fruity, muscat grapes, and that phenol notes. Great beer, one of best

Rask0lnikov (433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2016
A bit hazy yellow colour. Almost no froth. Nice aroma of white wine, flowery hints, hints of horseblanket and grapes. Acidic beginning. Wine taste in the middle. Grapes and some sweetness in the end. Another phenomenal lambic. Wine-like. Long aftertaste. Very well balanced.

Garrold (3655) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Mig’s World of Wine, Brussels. Clear gold. Halo of white. Nose has fusty, creeping, damp, woody malts. Lots of punchily acidic white grape, by way of balance. Touch of honeyed sweetness in the background. Smells great. Taste has a soft sweetness. Gets dry, and grape juice earthy and tart. The mouthfeel is fantastic. Smooth, and rich, but clean and puckering al at once. Finishes mouth-wateringly tart, clean, and tangy. Drinking wine is something I rarely do these days, but this reminds me of some of my absolute favourites. Stellar.
