COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

martjoobolut (1470) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2015
0,375L bottle, 2015 vintage (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours red with pink head. The head stays. Aroma is strawberries, tart, some dryness, and fruits. Flavor is tart, acidic, raspberries, some wood. Finish is long dry tartness with touch of bitterness. Overall: expected more raspberries, but otherwise great brew.

Une superbe framboisé à la robe grenat brillante. Le nez est puissant sur la framboise et le lambic, le bouche est droite, nette, le fruit est superbe, la longueur kilométrique et la finale superbement équilibrée. Un régal.

thirstyrabbit (1413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2015
375 ml bottle, around 7 weeks old. Pours a beautiful opaque red body with a pink head. Aroma has pure raspberry juice without the sugars. Very natural and summery. Dry tart taste with more raspberries. More tart than sweet. A very faint hint of something lactic. Finish is mildly puckering. I want to pair it with desserts, especially chocolate cake or brownies!

MarkoNm (1308) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2015
At the brewery. Pours a clear darker red color, topped with a very small and quickly settling white head. Aroma pleasant as always, slightly soury feel to raspberry fruitness. Taste is gentle, fruity but almost without any sweetness. Wit ha decent soury feel to it. Very likeable.

Mjp12 (758) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottled early 2014, so a year and a half old, the raspberry flavours are still fresh, with just a hint of lambic on the finish. Very good .

Alpha10 (419) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
2015/05/02 - Bottle at Nuetnigenough in Brussels. Pours a hazy dark pink (cream soda) colour with a fizzy, light pink head that slowly reduces. Aroma is raspberries, mild barnyard funk and slight oak. Taste is tart raspberries, lemon and slight vinegar. Very sour and a little sweet. Mouthfeel is light with slightly sharp carbonation and a long, tart finish. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BuckeyeSammy (558) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2015
Very well carbonated. Wild yeast palate destroyer. Tart raspberries, cherry, some grapefruit, lemon. Sour notes can be overwhelming. Long finish like you’re sucking on a lemon. Interesting, not Ma favorite from them.
