"It has the colour of onion skin", said a voice behind me. It was Raymond Coumans. He was admiring the colour of the raspberry lambic reflecting in the red copper of the buckets used to empty the barrels. At that time (1986), "Raspberry-Lambic" already was synonymous with a sweet, artificially flavoured beer. This is why we decided to distinguish our beer from the other raspberry beers. Raymond proposed to call it a rosé, dedicated not to Bacchus but to Gambrinus.

The process to make this beer is identical to the one to make Kriek. When young, the Rosé de Gambrinus will still present its full fruity taste. Later on, the lambic taste will become dominant at the expense of the fruit taste.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Light red beer with tiny pink head. Accidic aroma with minor notes of raspberry. Taste is very sour like your typical Cantillon and again the pressence of rasberries is close to abscent. A fantastic framboise!

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 [589-20070908] 1pt9.4floz @ Sourfest 2007 (Buffalo, NY, w/ rudolf, frylock, IPFreely, jerc, swoopjones). Raspberry musk aroma. Hazy, pink orange body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Raspberry musky sourness in the flavour is not cloying. Medium body, sour. Fairly refreshing finish. (8/3/8/4/17) 4.0

[3315B-20100809] Bottle. Freshly pressed raspberries and notes of barrel yeast in the aroma. Slightly hazy, bright red pink body with a long-lasting foamy pink head. Sour raspberry juice flavour has a lingering tart fruity yeast aftertaste. Medium body is very sour. Yum! In great shape, quite drinkable. (9/4/8/4/17) 4.2

FatPhil (13254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2007
Very red, almost cartoony. Dry fruit and fruit skin aroma, raspberry detectable. Taste is less lambic-like than most Cantillons, and much more sweet. Hints of raspberry and other dark berries. Leaves the mouth dry and sticky, not unpleasantly so.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle at Palm Tavern- Red color, small white head. Aroma is pleasent, raspberries a bit of barnyard though not overwhelming, and hiding its true self. Drinking this is truly sour and beautiful, very nice.

2002. murky brown with no head. very loud, fizzy pour. strong oak, brett aroma with light raspberry. flavor is dried apricots and raspberry with plenty of sourness, acid, and brett. as usual, too sour for me.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Draft at monks. Reddish color with a light pink head. Aroma dominated by acidic raspberries with some light sourness. Flavor is dominated by raspberries with a hint of lemon and funk. Not bad, but for Cantillon this is pretty disappointing. Maybe some time on a bottle of this will sour it up.

downender (7793) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle from the brewery. Subtle pink colour with a moderate, rose-tinted head. Aroma was of yeast, the farmyard and a hint of raspberries. The mouth feel was puckering, with plenty of acidity. Flavours of red soft fruit with a very dry finish. Very enjoyable.
