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.

Już w aromacie uderza bardzo kwaśna malina, w smaku podobnie. Mało stajni, zero octu, solidnie malinowo kwaśne, coś jak niedojrzała malina. Mocno kwaśne ale profil jest czysto malinowy, fajnie tutaj to zagrało. Nasycenie idealne, po ogrzaniu wychodzą taniny które długo utrzymują się w ustach. Bardzo fajne piwo, lekkie, rześkie bardzo owocowe, gdyby było bardziej dzikie może by absorbowało jeszcze więcej uwagi, ale absolutnie sama bardzo przyjemna kwaśna malina która uderza tu z każdej strony już daje dużo satysfakcji.

ForlornHope (533) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2017
75 cl bottle at home. Found in the back of a cupboard with a long-gone (about 5 years!) best before date. Still has a lively pour, deep amber colour with a white head. Nice aroma: the red fruit comes first with a woody, leathery backnote but is still quite delicate and perfume-like. Sweet fruit with an excellent tartness to immediately follow. The fruit remains through the taste experience with more leathery backnote. Ends tart and dry. Excellent.

En aroma la frambuesa es intensa y se une a un cuero suave y toque floral. En boca hay fruta jugosa de inicio, acidez redonda, ligero salado y final seco.
