375ml bottle - 2013 Vintage
Notes taken on 06/29/2014 – Big thanks to mdfb79 for providing this my 2nd ever Cantillon brew.

A: Rose de Gambrinus pours a hazed up russet mix of orangish amber and reddish brown tones throughout. Not like any beer I have really seen ever. Pinkish white cotton candy like suds cover the top with lower retention displayed. Course, active, and choppy. There is some very minimal stick or dotty cling to the glass. Looks quite fanciful.

S: Smells of tart raspberry puree with some strawberry mixed in, light cider vinegar, and lemon curds. I get some iron like minerals and a bit of earthy musk in the back as well. Otherwise this is all very fresh fruit and tartness on the nose which is really nice.

T: Whole raspberry juice with some strawberry accents pressed up against a bright lemony lactic tartness and some mild acetic vinegar qualities. Great mix of tart and sour. Underneath lies some mild earthiness, soiled oak, and farmhouse flavors. Dry through and through yet you get just an inclining of malt sweetness to hold it all together. Really great balance. Void of any type of bitterness and alcohol is negligible. Wish this had a bit more raspberry blast to it however it is still very tart and refreshing.

M: Very light and dry with an upper level of spritzy carbonation. Piquant tart pucker with light tannic qualities and a bone dry finish.

D: Incredibly drinkable for such a potent little Lambic. Not going to be my favorite but really glad to have tried this one out. Seems the flavors don’t deliver quite as much of that fresh raspberry the nose brings. Cantillon sure makes some great Wild ales however and this is no exception. The balance of all the encompassed flavors just comes together so well.

Thanks again Dan!
