"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 rosť, dedicated not to Bacchus but to Gambrinus.

The process to make this beer is identical to the one to make Kriek. When young, the Rosť 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: DEC 11, 2015 At Cantillon. Bright red with pink hue and pink head. Raspberries, hay, cheese, funk. Sour with light sweetness from the fruit. Very nice fruity and yeasty finish. Well carbonated.

Earlier rating: Tasting at my place. Thanks to Maakun for sharing this big boy. Nice dark pink with light pink head. Prrrty sour, funky, hay, lot of raspberry aroma through the sour berries. Very very nice! Backlog from 2015/01/09.

Sarlacc83 (1691) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Bottle from Johnís Market back before these got super hard to find. A: Very cloudy red color with a fizzing pink head. Lacing. N: Raspberry, grapefruit, lemon rind, some vinegar, hints of cherry, oak, some definite attic funk. T: Quite sour but not acetic or vinegary. M: Light body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Enjoyable raspberry sour. Itís not as complex as I would have expected but still worthy.

SkillsFactory (449) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2015
Imbottigliata nel 2015, aperta il 18/11/2015. Colore tra il rosa ed il rosso, schiuma rosa di media finezza di persistenza medio-bassa. Appena versata aroma di lamponi, via via che si riposa nel bicchiere fa spazio a zucchero, stallatico e lattico, note legnose, susina acerba. Al palato sempre stallatico, lampone e susina acerba, note legnose, coda sempre di lampone ed erbacea, molto equilibrata. Corpo medio, non molto carbonata, un po' oleosa.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - NOV 14, 2015
La fambroise di Cantillon. Bel colore che ricorda i chicchi del melograno, con una schiuma rosa non troppo compatta. Al naso i lamponi sono protagonisti, anche se dopo lo shock iniziale, vengono fuori i sentori tipici della fermentazione spontanea. In bocca oltre alla discreta frizzantezza si affiancano le sensazioni di dolce e di acido. I lamponi sono mitigati da un buon corpo ed il finale Ť senza dubbio secco.

DerGantzel (260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2015
Fresh aroma of fruits, berries (raspberry). Semi-clear, beuatiful red golden liquid. Light sweetness, light bitterness, and medium-high sourness. Very well tasting with raspberry present. Soft carbonation, full body.

Aroma on this beer is quite special. Sour raspberry, strawberry, funk, barnyard and oak. Vanilla. Flavor-wise i get quite a good amount of nice sweet raspberries, funk and strawberry. Quite nice. Dry finish. Well balanced.

hohops (686) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Appearance- clear, light ruby red, a pink foamy head which very quickly diminishes. Aroma- straw, barnyard, tart fruit, raspberries by the bucketload, wild yeast, freshly made dough. Taste- loads of sour fruit, overripe cherries, tart raspberry, wet cardboard, wet hay, sour lip-puckering finish. Good stuff.

Used to live right by this wonderful place. Rose color tart and lightly carbonated. Taste some acidity and well balanced with a strawberry and grape jammieness with dry finish as the fruits continued on. On of my favorites.
