75cl bottle from May 2013, shared with Doug today, 8/4/2013. Poured into a Great Lakes snifter glass. Have had a bottle at the Brasserie Cantillon on Rue de Gheude as well.

This beer pours a ruby red body with a decent bit of white head that dissipates slowly over time. This looks similar to Cantillon Kriek, honestly. As a whole, it looks like a cross between red wine and a brown ale.

Smells straight up of fresh raspberry. Not sweet but its very fruity. It also smells a little acidic at the beginning while it was served at fridge temp. But, I poured some in a glass and set it aside so I could see what it tasted like a hour later. As it got warm, so much more of that earthy funk comes out, reminding me of the first time I walked into Brasserie Cantillon- so funky, uniquely so, yet it was mixed in with that strong fruity raspberry flavour.

Drinking it, like I said in the nose, it's fresh raspberry flavour with a decent sour complement to the flavour. As it warms up, it gets more sour and more funky compared to the raspberry flavour even though its still there in a strong amount. It's delicious, refreshing and perfect. I love it!

Mouthfeel is a bit thinner compared to the Cantillon Kriek, but its just as easy drinking. It's refreshing with a fruity raspberry aftertaste mixed in with a bit of vinegar.. medium carbonation but its just enough to fizzle on the tongue and add to the experience. Very drinkable.

After having had both the 100% Kriek and the Rosé de Gambrinus out of the bottle, I honestly think I may prefer Gambrinus to the Kriek. I thought that at the brewery, I preferred Kriek to Gambrinus but I have to seriously reassess. Fou' Foune is still the king of Cantillon, but Gambrinus has moved up in my Cantillon hierarchy for sure.
