"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.

04.01.13. Bottle, 2011. Foam is pink, quite thick, quickly gone. Clear berry red color. Aroma is sweet, some oak, raspberry, very refreshing! Tastes sour (very), with a dash of raspberry. Med. carbonation, smooth mouthfeel though. Aftertaste is sour, a bit bitter, very long and a bit acidic/burning.

Not a fan of this one exactly, but it’s certainly refreshing and quenching. Lots of flavor for 5% ABV, that’s for sure.

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.

Pours bright red with medium pink head. Aroma is slurry, farm, cows, raspberry notes in the background, some salt. Taste is raspberry, salt, acid, sour fruits, berries, some bitterness, light leather, cow skin, slurry. Nice beer!

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.

Butelka 2015. Piwo w kolorze czerwono rubinowym nalewa sie z obfita piana ktora jednak znika w ciagu 3 sekund bez sladu. W aromacie intensywne maliny, dzikosc i nuty konia w stodole. Kwasnosc i nuty winno-octowe zdecydowanie zapowaidaja co dzieje sie w smaku. Jest bardzo kwasnie i cierpko a jezyk odrazu wyczuwa maliny i kwasne wisnie z porzeczkami. Piwo jest dla mnie przekozakiem jesli chodzi o lambiki.

FinnIckler (357) - GERMANY - APR 7, 2017
Glass from a bottle at cantillon. Pours rose colored. Nose is some acetone sourness, otherwise very fruity, raspberry, strawberry. Palate is really good fruity and sour notes mixed together. starting with berries the sourness slowly creeps up on you and is present in the finish. Very Drinkable, very good, could have a bit more oomph.

heman (879) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 5, 2017
Piwo ma przepiękną krwisto czerwona barwę, jest idealnie klarowne. Nalewa się z intensywną, białą pianą która po chwili redukuje się do obrączki. Aromat jest intensywny i w pierwszej chwili zdominowany nutami dzikimi: zleżałe siano, trochę spoconego konia, stęchła piwnica. Po chwili do głosu dochodzą kwaśne maliny. Piwo jest mocno wysycone, wytrawne i wyraźnie kwaśne w smaku. Nuty rustykalne schodzą na dalszy plan, kwaśne maliny i mokre zboże przejmują władanie. Finisz jest wyraźnie cierpki z lekko octową nutą.
