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.

dorain (652) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2017
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2017-09 getrunken. Ein tolles fruchtiges Lambik mit Himbeeraromen. Jedoch ohne Bitterkeit wie bei einer Framboise durch die Himbeerkerne.

Zilverenmaan (276) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2017
Looks beautiful crimson, especially after the head has gone. Aroma and taste mostly sour, some funk to add depth combined with a gentle, sour-sweet taste of raspberries. Very well balanced: definately not too sweet, raspberries adding taste and complexity rather than being overwhelming, not too sour either. Very enjoyable.

Parmenion777 (357) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle - Pours an opaque pinkish red colour with a frothy pink head that quickly settled with a lovely tart raspberry and funk aroma. A complex taste, acidic and yet sweet, subtle sour notes combined with a raspberry sweetness and a dryness in the finish. Best fruit lambic I’ve tasted.
