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.

Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana średnie i duże oczka, znika. Kolor jasno czerwony, mętne. Aromat Maliny, świeże, wiśnie pestkowe, słodko kwaśny jednocześnie, przyjemny. Smak, kwaskowe, wytrawne, maliny, pestkowe wiśnie, lekko cierpkie, dębina z taninami. Piwo ciekawe, kwaśność średnia, nie przesadzona mimo wytrawności jest odrobina pełni i słodyczy, Bardzo Dobre.

W aromacie czuć malinkę, trochę też wiśnie (?) i lekko róże. Poza tym aromat typowo lambikowy. Piwo czerwone, lekko mętne. W smaku mocno owocowe, słodko-kwaśne, bardzo pijalne, można go wypić dużo. Trochę zalega na przełyku. Pita wersja tegoroczna (2017), ciekawi mnie, jak smakuje takie piwo po zleżeniu jakiegoś czasu w piwnicy.

Ogółem bardzo przyjemny lambic, naprawdę.

2006: Amber. Aroma is raspberry marmelade, caramel: Taste is very sour raspberry, very dry.
2017: Ruby. Fruitier. More sour, not so dry, reminds more of raspberry leaves. Overall quite drinkable and fruity. I like both. But the old one is somehow more complex. Interesting.

Najlepsza w tym framboise jest etykieta. Nie no żartuję. Nuty malinowe są delikatne i bardzo ładne, nuty dzikich drożdży są nie najmocniejsze. Po dwóch godzinach walenia dzikusów piwo było zwyczajnie mało intensywne, ale bardzo przyjemne.

Sporo aromatów malin i dzikich drożdży, w tle delikatne akcenty rozpuszczalnikowe. Wytrawne, sporo nut owocowych, wyraźnie kwaśne, lekko cierpkie od malin i taniniczne od beczki.

November 11, 2017 - bottle at Wildeman. Reddish brown pour with light pink head. Aroma had an earthy funk with raspberries and touch of sweetness. Taste as expected is very nicely balanced. Bottled June 19, 2017.
