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.

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

750ml bottle at home as 'Cantillon Vigneronne', 6.5%, 13 months old. Pours fizzy orangeade with a quickly dissipating head, sparkling. Quite a vibrant shade but otherwise not that attractive. Aroma is pretty 'dirty' lambic with lots of old rotting wood, slightly sulphurous, wet football and leather set against grape, kiwi and citrus. Slight highlighter pen acetone later on. Body is quite fizzy yet smooth. Taste is tart blood orange, Lucozade, lightly acidic - quite restrained, some yellow plum and apricot with a grapefruit note and more tangy acidity, finishes like a semidry white wine. Overall, this is a good beer but one of the least impressive Cantillons I've tried. Considering the price and effort, this will be a one-off purchase. (7-3-7-3-15=3.5)

Zapach bardzo kwaśnych, zielonych jabłek, wyjątkowo kwaśny. Smak dużo bardziej zbalansowany, na początku z lekko słodką owocową nutą, później też kwaśny, bardzo owocowy, finisz krótki, mało dziki.

I thought I'd lost the rating for this but just stumbled on my tasting notes, go figure. Drunk to celebrate my wedding anniversary in 2013. From notes:

"2012 vintage lot A12. Great carbonation, light pink head on a ruby red body. Grapes, a bit of mustiness... Very reminiscent of red wine. Incredibly sour, very tart, highly acidic. I think it needs more aging. I am getting some musty grape notes, a bit of earthy woodsyness as well. Interesting but it is not at it's best I think. I feel like it is a wine/beer hybrid that is more on the wine side."

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Acida. Esplosiva in bocca, con una lieve punta d'amaro nella degustazione. SPAZIALE

Pours cloudy golden with low white head. Aroma of grass, green grapes, hay, fruit. Taste is medium fruity tart with mellow sweet finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

2016 vintage from draft. Pours pale yellow with almost no head, little hazy. Aroma has sweet white grapes, green apples. Taste is lemon, sweet white grapes, little sour, no carbonation, very easy drinking

Ferris (17173) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2017
Draft - White musty grape and a touch vegatle. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Green and vegatle, not my favourite.

From notes. Pour at Zwanze Day 2017 at Jolly Pumpkin on September 23. The pour is a darker golden yellow with a thick white head that falls down slowly with a couple spots of lace in wake. The aroma is pretty good. Lots of funk, grape must, oak, and tart skins. This is actually surprisingly balanced for what I was expecting. The funk and tart skin work well together. The flavor is much of the same. The grapes and funky oak balance out nicely on the back end. The mouth feel is lighter medium bodied with a nice crisp carbonation and a lingeringly grape must and oakiness abound. This is a solid brew. I am a fan of the Cantillon selection this year. Nicely done. 8 4 8 4 16
