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.

WOW! This is an absolutely fantastic beer. Pours dirty yellow with sediments floating around and a small, white head. The aroma is musty with notes of hay and fruit. The flavour is intensily sour with the classic lambic notes of barnyard, dust and dirt but with a wonderfull fruity and flowery muscat dimension.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Poured orange from the bottle with a nice big white head. Aroma was white grapes, hay, vinegar, barnyard and must. Taste was nice funk, more reserved than most lambics, white grapes, fruit and vinegar. Fairly nice overall. Much more accessible.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2010 Very hazy grapefruit colored pour with a thin white head. Sour vinegar aroma with grape, earth, funk, and some lemony citrus. Very sour flavor, but just the right amount for me. Lots of winy grape flavor with wood and earth. One of the best fruit lambics Ive had.

Bottle at EBF 08. Thanks Jacob. Yes, it’s got a lot of acid, lots of white wine grape flavours. Some good grape/green apple. Not bad at all.

vyvvy (6068) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2008
This beer is some kind of wonderful. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. the aroma is nicely sour, tart and grainy with white grapes, citric acid, wild yeast, grape sweetness and a grainy sour roughness. Medium / light body with some smoothness and graininess to the body and light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with definite tartness, but it is offset to an extent by the sweetness from grapes. There is a heavy amount of funk and extra grainy for a Cantillon. The finish is tart, citric, powdery and floral. This is so delicious and one of the easiest drinking lambics out there. Wonderful stuff.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2008
2003 Bottle. I have had this one for a long time and decided I would try to get the taste of that DIPA out of my mouth. Liquid was all around the cap and the cork was wet. Pops out and shows no sign of carbonation. Pours out a yellowish brown color with a white head that goes away really fast similar to champagne. Smell is tart, with some grape smells, and oak. Smells sort of like champagne only a little more tart. Taste is sour as fuck. Holy shit. Probably one of the more sour beers I have drank. Not in a vinegar way either. Once I got used to it, this beer was very refreshing. Easy to drink. A little bit of oak cuts through the mix. Pretty good lambic actually. The grape flavors (if there were any) have faded from the taste and remain only in the aroma.

Pours cloudy yellow in glass with a head that fizzles away. Aroma is tart with some stank of barnyard funk. Slight woody undertones in the aroma but not very noticable. Not as tart as I experienced from other Cantillon selections. Light on the palate very drinkable and refreshing. Can get the grapes in the finish. Finished clean without an overwhelming dryness, the tart flavor washes away making you want more. Well done.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Version from 2005. Pours a cloudy summer-grain-yellow with a light white head. The aroma is like a stack of wet hay and with sourly pomelos and vanilla. The palate is very smooth and with a taste of green unmature green grapes. - Theres no sharp bitterness but a bitterness nore in the sweet end. The finish is long and slow with a nice fading sourness with a sparklin palate.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2008
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy straw gold with no head. Aroma is lacking grapes, nice tartness, musty, sweet, gueuze-ish aroma. Light, slightly sour, fairly tart, grape makes itself known toward the end. Just a little dry. Leaves a nice sweet coating when you lick your lips.

Has an aroma like new, partially fermented wine. Quite tart, with a nice green grape skin flavor.
