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.

Aroma: Sour raspberries, a bit of funky and leather. Taste: Dry and sour. Not sweet at all. Noticable raspberries and leather. Pleasant. Palate: Medium carbonation. Slightly bitter. Appearance: Rose. White, high head, but it disappears rather quickly.

Lambic w rejonach łagodności, pozycja klasyczna, owoc, kwasowość, wbmojej butelce nadmierna pienistość, ale korek był nieszczelny

The_Osprey (9163) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
October 2017 - 375ml bottle at home in Richmond as 'Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus', 5%, bottled Dec 2016. Naked woman getting fondled on the bottle. Pours a deep ruby red, translucent, sparkling, foamy pink head leaves streaky lacing. Aroma is huge raspberry, cherry, strawberry, jammy, mixed berry yoghurt, little musty. Big aroma. Body is light, pretty smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is again fruity, more citrus than aroma, blood orange with a hint of raspberry, lemon juice tartness. Really clean and fruity. Enjoyable stuff. (8-4-7-3-16=3.8)

GTAEgeek (2425) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Sample from a bottle after the tour at the brewery. Pours a clear, ruby color, with a small, pink head. Sharp raspberries dominate the aromas, with some yogurt, lemon juice, cloves, and gingerbread. Sweet and fruity, with a light and pleasant tart flavor. Light to medium body, with a pleasantly acidic, crisp, and clean mouthfeel. Light and fruity, well balanced, and just lovely.

coachd (932) - Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Tart funky aroma with tons of raspberry. One of the prettiest beers I have ever seen, Dark crimson with very little head. Tastes tart with natural raspberry flavor coming through. Light palate with champagne-like carbonation. Very well done; I would like to try more beers from Cantillon although where I live it is very hard to find.

Aus der Flasche im Muted Horn getrunken. Klares Kirschrot mit wenig Karbonisation. Typische schon entwickelte Lambic-Nase. Das Lambic dominiert stark über die Fruchtnoten.
