"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.

Buonissima Fruit lambic, genere che non ho mai apprezzato abbastanza. versa rosso scuro con una schiuma rosa che sparisce velocemente. Frutti di bosco al naso ed in bocca, note acide, qualche sentore di muffa. copro leggero, carbonazione generosa.

375ml bottle (thx JameyW!). Pours a hazy raspberry color with a rose head. Aroma is tart with raspberry notes, slightly woody. Taste is pretty the same, in which you can easily find a trace of raspberry or gueuze. Tart, raspberry notes aftertaste. Very good.

Vells (1514) - RÓga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUL 12, 2016
Highly enjoyable fruity sipper. Raspberry all over the place, but never gets too pushy or boring, somewhat even seems like cherry would be involved, light woody note. Sweet raspberries, sweet raspberries, fresh raspberries, overripe raspberries, raspberry sticks. This beer brings you in raspberry world. Quite awesome
