Notes / Commercial Description:
The name Vigneronne Cantillon was given in 1987. This name reminds us that, while it belongs to the beer patrimony, 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.

In spite of its success, the Vigneronne represents less than 5% of the total production of the Cantillon brewery. In order to obtain grapes which are as mature as possible, we buy them at the end of the season. Every year, 1000 kilos of white italian grapes are delivered at the Cantillon brewery in the beginning of October.

2015 bottle poured into a stemmed bulb. Golden yellow in color with a small champagne like head that develops. Dissipates quickly. The aroma on this one is very interesting in that I have never smelled this type of grape before. Definitely some funk, earthiness and white wine characteristics here. Flavor on this is amazing. Very balanced with the grapes, funk and soul white wine characteristics that I’m picking up. Feel is as you would expect for the style beer. Good carbonation. Lots of bubbles on the tongue. Overall, this is another winner from Cantillon.
