Style: Lambic - Fruit

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Life os Strange Before the Storm. Raspberries only accentuate the already excessive tartness of the beer,m aking it hard to sip, without providing much fruitness. Unidimensional

2018 bottle 750ml bottle capped and corked poured into snifter.

A: Gorgeous fat creamy pink head that settles slowly to a film. Body is a rich vibrant deep red with an opaque appearance, the body isn't murky it's just the coloring.

S: Huge red raspberries almost a jam like quality to the nose, a little perfumey light wheat and just a hint of vinegar and some sourness.

T: Vibrant huge red raspberry flavor, silky sweetness but then an edge of sourness that brings the sweetness up short and a nice light wheat and slight wine like finish with a little oak and tannin taste.

M: Just the right amount of carbonation not too carbonated starts out sweet switches to sour and finishes so smooth and dry.

O: This beer is as close to perfect as you get, if you are wanting something super sour this isn't it. This beer is so well balanced and the raspberry explodes on the tongue, quite simply amazing.

2016 375ml bottle. Pours a translucent raspberry red with a moderate slightly off white, slightly light pink head. Nose is that of picking raspberries in the backyard at Grandmas House when I was young. Really, the smell of berries, raspberries miked with slight notes of damp wood and leaves. Taste is raspberry heaven. You know when you go to the store and buy raspberries and sometimes the are to tart? Sometimes they are to ripe and sweet? But every once and awhile you get that perfect pack that has the perfect amount of sweet raspberry with just a touch of tartness to keep them from being cloying? If you get that then you get this beer! It’s a perfectly picked raspberry in a glass. Slight funk and subtle damp oak that smooths out the beer and compliments the fruitiness of the beer. Medium body to boarderline thin with a wet berry finish that fades to dry at the very last possible second. I loved it!
