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.

Pours a light red color with a frothy pink head - very feminine looking (I’m okay with that.) Smells... not as fruity as imagined, more like a gueze I think. It’s definitely got the sour, wet hay smell, and the raspberries are there - just subtle. Taste is definitely more raspberry. It’s got a huge sour punch that hits you right in the middle of the tongue. I really like this a lot, probably one of my favorite lambics (though I probably say that more often than I think, ha!)

Pours dark rose, pink head. Aroma is sour cherries, berries, floral notes. Flavor is tart berries, med acidity, grape skin. Lovely.

Luty (94) - 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.

Aroma; lemonized raspberries, yoghurt, woody allens, tarty pale malts. Look; dark cherry with pink panther on. Taste; citric raspberries, grassy malts, wooden pale caramel notes, milky notes of yoghurt. Quite dry tail spiced up. Feel; ok body n co2. Smooth operator. Overall; very good raspberry-winemonade.

gripweed57 (1773) - 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.

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 (359) - 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 (883) - 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.
