"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.

Red color, with a nice white head. Nice and balanced sweetness & bitterness. The smell and taste remind me of earth and soil, in a postive way. Very interesting.

ForlornHope (502) - 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.

Torrefacto (1649) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2017
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.

Luty (102) - Swiebodzice, POLAND - APR 23, 2017
2014. Niesamowity zapach, bardzo złożony i bogaty w piękne ziemiste i owocowe klimaty, leśne owoce, totalny brak kompotu a zamiast tego słodka malina, nuty rustykalne i obora, pewne zdziwienie bo także odrobina medykamentów i klimatów szpitalnych. Niesamowita owocowość, nie mam wiele kwaśnych piw do porównania ale urzekło mnie to, że owoce są tak w Cantillonach intensywne, że niemal czuć ich fakturę na języku, wysoka owocowa kwaśność, kojarząca się oczywiście z maliną z krzaka lub niedojrzałym winogronem, przemieszana z również owocowo-malinową słodyczą, pozostawia cierpkość. Piękne.

gripweed57 (2113) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy, bright red color. Brief white head. Intense tangy sour fruit aroma. Intensely sour, dry raspberry fruit flavor. A real puckering taste experience. Whoa! Truly unique.

tapefuzz (427) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2017
2015 on draught. Pours deep dark red with a large fluffy pink head. Aroma is dominated by raspberry but also features wood, yoghurt, and a touch of barnyard. Taste is tart raspberry accentuated by wood, some hay, and yoghurt. Finish very dry with a good deal of spice and pepper. Light-medium body. Average carbonation. Smooth, slick mouthfeel. Raspberry initially overwhelms this beer but complexity - and enjoyability - grows with every sip.
