"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.

Bawelt (487) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 25, 2016
Le nez est très frais : on sent des petites notes boisées, de paille, de pomme, un peu de framboise derrière. On a de claires notre vinaigrées, vineuses. La bouche est très vinaigrée, très effervescente et une acidité très marquée. La framboise se sent en tout début d’attaque et dans la longueur. On sent bien des pommes comme dans un cidre assez brut. On a un côté frais amené par le côté parole et herbe sèche.
