Beer Description: In 1973, Jean-Pierre Van Roy, after having relaunched successfully the production of raspberry lambic, purchased white grapes and soaked them in lambic. This experiment worked! The fructose, which abounds in these fruits, enables the Cantillon Brewery to make a beer which is more mellow than the Gueuze or the other fruit beers.
The name Cantillon Vigneronne was given in 1987.
The beers are not blended before the bottling. The second fermentation is caused by the addition of a sugared liquor. The six-pointed star on the label is an alchemist’s symbol. It contains four elements, represented by triangles, of the brewing process. The fire is the symbol of the mashing tun, the earth of the cereals, the air of the yeasts, and the water is the fourth element. At present, only a brewer of traditional lambic may use this symbol.
