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.

Fresh raspberries still dominate over light musty funk, light astringent tanninic finish with medium very smooth lactic/malic acid sourness.

Mooi rond fruitig aroma. Fijne frisse frambozensmaak met een typische lange Lambik afdronk. Funky en stijlvol!

ebone1988 (1794) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. Aroma is raspberry jam, just incredibly jammy, slight funk, tart, very very nice. Appearance is red, purple red head, slightly hazy, beautiful. Taste is raspberry, tart, funk, fruit falls off very quick, some mineral, not as jammy as I’d hoped. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, funk and slight tart raspberry aftertaste. Overall, if that raspberry could have remained in the taste, this would have been amazing.

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
pours reddish pink with a small pink head. Aroma of sweet wild raspberries and ample tartness / sourness. Flavour is more pronounced with the wild and tart qualities, with wild berries, moderate funk / barnyard qualities, medium tartness. Dry, funky palate with a great inclusion of the berries. Excellent stuff.
