"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.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2018 0.375 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is red, bubbly and no head. Taste has raspberry, but it is dry not sweet as usually in this style. Well, that's no surprise since all Cantillon's lambics are very dry. This was actually the first raspberry lambic that made some sense for me.

Lactic acids - too much, though less than in other Cantillons, some acetic acids, and strong fruit esters. Boon beers are more balanced and have mostly fewer acids. Cantillon is nice but too hyped.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Life os Strange Before the Storm. Raspberries only accentuate the already excessive tartness of the beer,m aking it hard to sip, without providing much fruitness. Unidimensional

UPDATED: APR 5, 2018 Awesome nose. Fresh raspberries with some champagne like kick. Very refreshing, nice soutness and raspberry taste.

astronzz (171) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 10, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2018 Barwa brazowo-czerwona z delikatna pianka. W aromacie uderzaja maliny, agrest i pestkowosc. Brett’y na umiarkowanym poziomie. Bardzo przyjemne z akcentami nadzienia rozanego dobrze znanego z paczkow. W smaku duzo nadzienia rozanego i malin. Niezle na prawde jest efekt wow. Super kompozycja taka swieza, pelna. Troche kwiatow drzew owocowych. Tanicznosc jest bardzo delikatna, w aromacie o wiele mocniejsza. Finisz taki delikatny cierpkawo, agrestowo, malinowy. Orzezwienie na maksa. Na prawde bardzo dobry lambik.
