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.

Wischylini (144) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a deep ruby red, with a faint purple-ish head. Aromas are raspberry, cherry, and oak. The taste is somewhat sweet, while refreshingly tart. The mouthfeel is light and sparkly. Aftertaste is long and vinegary, yet fresh.

popery (1496) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 25, 2015
The beer is dark, slightly brownish red. Looks pretty hazy. Small pink head, sorta fizzy. Fades to a ring pretty quickly. Raspberry jam and lambic funk in the aroma. Wonderful fruit flavor. Horse blanket, cheese, fresh tart berries. Medium tart. Lots of raspberry fruit flavor. Dry. Effervescent feel.

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
(On tap @ Akkurat, Dec 29 2014) Pours medium pink red with a small pink tinged white head, stays as a ring with no lace. Aroma dominated by fresh raspberries, acidic undertone, just a touch of wood but not super complex. On the palate, raspberry juice initially, tart but not really sour, some light woodiness from middle on, dried sort of herbal quality in the finish with a very very light Brett funk and oak dryness. Finishes dry with blackberry seed aftertaste. Light palate with pretty light carb. Nice and fresh but not the most developed, complicated or challenging Cantillon by a stretch.

Bottle at the brewery. Poured a clear dark pink with a frothy broken light pink head. The aroma is yeast, tart raspberry. The flavour is moderate sour with a smooth tart acid fruit palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.
