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.

joshuahfl (47) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Pours pink with red highlights and no head. Aromas of vinegar, raspberry, citrus, some mild farmhouse funk. Taste is sour at first, but becomes slightly sweet as it lingers on the tongue. Flavors of tart fruit, funk, and flowers. A very nice lambic.

75cl bottle, bottled on 19.12.2016. Pours light red (pinkish) with clear, pinkish-white head. Sweet, acidic aroma of raspberries, stable, hay-ish. Taste is fruity and refreshing, acidic raspberries, then becomes slightly bitter at finish. Some cherries. Dry and tart. Overall very tasty and refreshing.

Kolor malin, ale piana w chwilę redukuje się do absolutnego zera. W aromacie maliny, trochę stajni, siana. W smaku maliny, taniniczność, nuty funky. Delikatnie puste. Nagazowanie niskie. Ogólnie przyjemne chociaż spodziewałem się więcej.

37,5cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Wazig roos-rood met een babyroze schuimkraag die snel wegzakt. G: Rood fruit (o.a. frambozen), materneconfituur en melkzuur. S: Zurig met een lichte zoetfruitige toetsen. Frambozen zijn ook zeer aanwezig. M: Dorstlesser met medium carbonatie.

DonGregorio (641) - POLAND - JAN 2, 2018
2016 bottle. Hazy red beer with small, light pink head with good duration. Aroma of raspberries, berry skins, stable, barnyard and light hay. Taste is very light sweet and medium sour, of raspberry jam, fresh berries, berry skins, leather, light oak, notes of stable and barnyard. Sour and tannic raspberry woody finish. Light to medium body, soft to average carbonation. Great balance and high drinkability. Excellent fruit lambic, very nice raspberry flavour with lots of funk.

Mariox (445) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 W aromacie przyjemne malinowe i tak jakby różane akcenty, delikatne skórzane aromaty, lekka taniczność, octowość, stajnia mało intensywna, mocno owocowe. W smaku półwytrawne, kontrująca słodycz w tle. Na finiszu cierpkie, taniczne, pestkowe. Treściwe, intensywne, nisko wysycone, alkohol niewyczuwalny, fajnie pijalny Lambik.

3.6
oberschlesier (239) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - DEC 30, 2017
Aroma: stable, leather, bit of raspberries. Taste: stable, bit sweet, then sour and strong tarty finish and aftertaste. Fine color - pink/delicate red. Head isn't impressive.

Flaska från Cantillon. Supertjusig röd i färgen med liten rosavit krona. Löjliga mängder färskplockade hallon och hallonkärnor i doften. Lite samma i smaken med tillägg av citrus, halm och fatkaraktär. En ganska lätt och lite torr kropp. Blir nästan lite vuxensaft, väldigt bälg-vänligt.
