"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.

Just opening the bottle you can tell this thing is going be seriously sour and funky from the aroma. Pours a cloudy pink with a thin head. The beer seemed a little thin and bubbly. Incredibly sour, almost a little to much so. The raspberries donít really stand out much. Was a bit of a miss for me.

375ml corked bottle

Bottled February 18, 2008
I tried this beer on May 23, 2008 at "The Beer Bistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a cloudy pinkish red with a thin white head. The aroma was musty with some hints of raspberry. The mouthfeel was thin, and very champagny. The flavour was primarily sour raspberries, very dry, and delicious. Very expensive, yet worth it.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Iíve experienced this on multiple occasions at multiple ages, and once on tap. Every taste has been fantastic, with minor raspberry notes, and a well balanced lambic running the main flavors. Mellows out beautifully after about 4 or 5 years. Yum!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2008
1979 vintage found at one of the bars in Belgium, didnít write down which. Pours a reddish color hints of an almost pink... with a whisp of head, not much left of it anymore. Bitter fruits dominate the aroma still leathers and wood are biggest a bit of wet blanket and a bit of tart apple skin maybe. Full well coated and quite tart palate. Very mellowed and well blended flavor, Iím guessing this came from age.. kept the tart from being to over the top while it was still a kick, I still think bitter green apple skin a definate wood and dry finish on the tongue, notes of leathers and some acidic pieces that make me think this is about to become to old... this stuff was very good though.
