"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.

Hazy red with a small light pink foam ring. Aroma has mostly raspberries and cereals. Taste has raspberries, tartness, cereals. Thin body, high soft carbonation, dry and woody. After taste with raspberries and slight bitterness.

Elle est bien rose et sa mousse en rose plus pâle et volumineuse. Pas de dentelle qui s’accroche. Le nez est acidulé, sauvage et romantique. Il y a de la pétale de rose, de l’eau de rose, des cerises et des framboises. Ça sent bon. C’est très sûr en bouche. La framboise est à l’honneur dans un panier rempli de fruits. La cerise reste tout près. C’est vraiment agréable. (1139-060714)

Sour, funk, fruit. All bases covered here. An outstanding lambic with the overwhelming raspberry taste coming over massively on the front and back end. Jammy and bright.

Bought at Cantillon’s braserie in Brusels. Excellent beer, no artificial raspberry flavour. Beautiful colour and great taste. Totally recomended. A visit to the braserie is also worth it.

Poured at the brewery at the end of our tour. Pours a bright pinkish red with a white head. Aromas of acid, vinegar, grape must, horse, and raspberries. The taste was tart but greatly subdued by the fruit. The raspberries came through wonderfully in this beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium high carb. Really enjoyed this one.

Bouteille (nov2013). Bootlegger. Charmante robe rose, mousse rosée furtive. Nez de chêne teinté de framboise. En bouche c'est très frais, acidité légère , goût fin de bois et de framboise. Finale sèche très fruitée . Très simple, délicate et féminine ... Un vrai délice ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

We just bought a 75cl bottle in the brasserie cantillon. Excellent beer, with a really nice color of pomegranate. Not artificial flavor of raspberry at all. It’s just a really great beer 100% recommended.
