So smooth, the nose is riddled with sour grapes, the flavor profile is so complex yet so delicious. White grapes and floral notes dance on the tongue

2011 vintage.
Pours pale gold, quite fizzy and large bubbles.
Aromas are Vinous, with a hint of orange (!)
Taste is all about grapes, vinous, aged semillon, sour, hint apricot, less lemon, not too sour finish tho, quite balance. ( or am I getting used to sours ? :-) )
Lively and zesty.
Great beer. Shame I cannot do a fresh - aged comparison.

I feel so lucky to get to try this magnificent beer--I feel wrong simplifying this down to a single word because it is so much more than that.

Appearance is solidly opaque, like a scoop of velvetty cantaloupe sorbet perfectly filling the glass to the edges, no head.

Aromas of really fine nectarine, plum, and just downright fresh fruit juice blossoms all over. A faint acidic funk hangs around in the background.

Taste is a unique and enticing peppery peach with lemon flesh. Vigneronne is very tart but not tongue searing. Damn it's like there is so much fresh peach juice, and this isn't even supposed to be a peach beer! Delicious--not overwhelmingly heavy or thick like this might sound, but bright and zippy, tangy and ever so fresh.

Feel is so damn smooth for a sour, with a dry to semi-dry finish.

Simply one of the top 5 beers that I've sampled. I brought home 3 750ml from Cantillon. Traded 2. Wish I would have kept. Bottle shared the 3rd. Smell was true Loon Funk! The mouthfeel and taste were brilliant. Even top US sour/lambic producers can't match the depth that these guys can yield. This is a must try for those who like Lambic.
