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.

Pours red, clear, very nice head. Wild aroma, subtle raspberry, red fruits but mainly barn, leather, lambic aromas. Dry, complex and sophisticated taste. Medium body, average carbonation, refreshing and crisp.

Drank with Kaspar and Lennart @ Piet Huisman 14-07-17. Had trouble locating the ’richness’, fruity aspects. Quite uncompromising sour, and bitter (but not too heavy) in it.

PowY (883) - AUSTRIA - JUN 20, 2017
375 ml bottle. Pours a very lightly hazy, light cherry red with a quickly disappearing pinkish head. The aroma is acidic with lactic notes and very fruity with lots of raspberries and some lemon; light to medium yeasty - sweaty. Light to medium body with a medium carbonation. The taste starts with a sharp sourness, which fades and is accompanied by a light bitterness in the finish. Dry finish and overall smooth. The flavor is very fruity, lemon, raspberries, unripe grapes, brett. Lots of fresh fruits, very refreshing.
