A: A crystal clear ruby red topped with a tight mircofoam of 2 fingers of pale rose bubbles. Losing so of it's volume the head settled to a thin blanket.
S: Sweet and tart raspberry with a lasting note of funk and some very subtle wheat.
Somme hints of minerals mixed with the sweetness of the raspberry.
T: Sweet tart red berries, bright, dry and refreshing, suggestive of lemon pith. Followed with an earthy funk and minerals. Tart and dry on the finish, puckering and tangy with a hint of pepper.
M: Clean, crisp and dry in the mouth - some puckering that is enjoyable and refreshing.
High carbonation supports the dry clean mouth feel.
O: The mix of red fruits with sour notes and the clean refreshing minerals offer a complex drink that is worth enjoying on each and every sip. The ruby red colour and pale pink foam is rich and shines with a jewel like intensity. Beautiful to look at and well blended with a mix of sweet, tart, and earthy funk, Rosé De Gambrinus is a complex drink worth lingering over.

4.19/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
750 ml bottle served @ 50* into a flute, consumed on 3/30/13. Bottled Feb 9th 2011. My first Cantillon. Been sittin on this for a year. Split with the wifey.
A - Nice big puffy fizzy light pink head, dissipates quickly to a thin blanket that holds up through the entire glass due to high carbonation. Good clarity, slightly hazy. Orange/pink body. Not much lacing at all.
S - Can catch some tart fruitiness during the pour from a foot and a half away. Tart with some light funk & fruit notes. Funk gets stronger as it warms, funky cheese.
T - Pretty tart but fairly balanced. Not as fruity as it probably was fresh but as a result of age a solid sour/funk profile is in control. Still the raspberry is there no question. Fairly complex. Finish is on the dry side. That fatty/cheesy funk really comes through at the end of the glass once its warmed, delicious.
M - Effervescent, prickly carbonation makes this delightful. Medium-light body.
O - This is very pleasurable to drink. The overall balance and high carbonation make it very refreshing. Really wish I had easy access to this on the reg.
