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.

Jimbo2 (419) - DENMARK - MAR 10, 2017
Completely red, very fruity with some tartness, but not in a domineering way. Easily drinkable and very crisp.

nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 5, 2017
Pours deep ruby with pink frothy head. Wild and fruity aroma, raspberries, cherries, grass, earth, barnyard, funk. Taste is sour with slight sweetness and light bitter finish. Light body, average carbonation. Delicious.

pkomar (415) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 5, 2017
bottled in 2013, opened in 2017. I got mixed feelings about aroma - on one hand it has some raspberries, some funky notes but on the other hand it smells of stale hops. Taste is much better, sour (not mouthtwisting-sour) with a nice raspberry pits aftertaste. A tiny bit of tannins to balance it out and just a hint of sweetness on the palate. Nice one apart from that odd stale hop note.

adamnowek (2475) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017
This beer has probably the most beautiful colour I’ve ever seen in a glass. Bold ruby red. Only a thin white head around the edges. Aroma is rather floral with hints of red berries. Taste is massive, with loads of fresh raspberries.

czlowiekmotyka (220) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Wonderful rose color and nice foam. Great texture of the beer and feel on the tongue. Sour anwild, but red fruit note is not well exposed.

pjotrapostou (173) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Ładny, czerwony kolor. W zapachu spora kwasowość. Smak - dużo malin, kwaśne pestki, dużo dzikości. Na dalszym planie wychodzi owocowość, sporo brettów, siano.

dnicolaescu (2476) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 20, 2017
BOTTLE 37,5 CL. Clear bright purple, pink sparkling head. Loads of tart raspberries - not sweet at all but with light fruity note masquerading as sugars, raspberry seed nuttiness overshadowing the lambic funk. The flavor is similar, very dry but not acidic. Pretty "clean" and fresh for a lambic, if I can put it this way. Light raspberry seed bitterness. Not super complex, but bright and vibrant.

Noform (69) - Tarnowskie Góry, POLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Ślicznie sie prezentuje kolor jak syrop malinowy, piana cudna drobna i całkiem sie długo utrzymuje. Zapach to maliny maliny i jeszcze raz maliny, lekko kwaśny i nutka derki. W smaku maliny obecne, lekko słodki ale nie mylić ze słodyczą tych "złych" lambików, ;) spora cierpkość oraz lekki koń. Nie jest bardzo kwaśne ale przy większym łyku lekko pali w przełyk. Cóż piwo zdominowane przez maliny ale czy to źle? Jest to naprawdę kawał dobrego lambika i posikał bym sie gdyby moje było chociaż troszkę podobne klasą do niego.
