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.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, - JAN 6, 2006
VINTAGE 1979. Vieille bouteille verte et poussiéreuse sans étiquette. Le bouchon est noirci et est en décomposition avancée, sentant la vieille cave sale et humide. Couleur orangée aux reflets cuivrés, faible quantité de mousse blanche tachetée. Arômes dont les fruits se font toujours très expressifs, même après toutes ces années. Fruits style framboise mais aussi rhubarbe et pommes vertes, étant initialement en compétition avec les vapeurs de vieille cave et de terre moisie…Heureusement celles-ci se résument éventuellement. Acidité lactique et acétique toujours présente, dans un bel équilibre, fruits surs et acide se mariant bien aux douces notes de madérisation, rappelant ainsi un vieux vin blanc. Texture huileuse, faible effervescence, tout en subtilité. Bouteille, Kulminator, Janvier 2006.
