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.

There is little doubt about what is put in the beer. Once the bottle is opened, it smells of raspberries, and this continues with greater intensity of flavor. The yeast adds a hint of citrus and lemon zest. This is a pleasant beer with great freshness. The fulness and alcohol fits the beer well.

Sudz4Dayz (89) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
375ml bottle shared with Sam and Julien. Pours dark rosey almost red wine fuschia, slight haze and a fizzy carbonated head. Smells winey, champagney, strong red berries predominantly raspberries with a sour tartness. Tastes of delicious strong raspberries, sour to boot in the best of ways. White winey tartness throughout. Sourness of a cranberry with the flavor of raspberries. Smooth, tart, white wine mouthfeel. Delicious. Really enjoyed this one.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Przy tej dostępności to rzecz absolutnie niezwykła. A 2016 rocznik wybitny, moim zdaniem klasę lepszy niż Hommage.
