Poured from a 375 ml bottle into teku glass. Bottled February 2013. Relatively fresh and good thing it's that way.

Pours a beautiful dark pink converging on violet. Nice big fluffy pink head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is heavy of raspberry jam, cotton candy, rose water and just a hint of earthy/funky lambic notes.

On the palate you get that big raspberry jam character from the nose along with huge floral components. Strawberry, faint cranberry,a little wet earth, and a speck of musty basement. The illusion of sweetness is present at the front of the tongue but then is demolished by a potent dryness on the finish. As I burp up I get a marvelous raspberry bubblegum taste. Yum!

Overall this is the best raspberry based sour I've had. Very much enjoyed Oude Beersels and I found Framboise De Amarosa fantastic. Also Bells Raspberry Wild One comes close but Cantillon just knows how to do fruit lambics.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 75 cl bottle , bottled 2013.

Appearance: Poured a thin, light pinkinh head that disappears fairly quickly as the beer selles in the glass - light carbo.

Smell: Sweet n sour as raspberry. Solid - expected tartness

Taste: Obviously raspberry & sweet berry flavors take over the funk. Almost dry on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated, not overpowering.

Overall: A defintely solid raz lambic that i am lucky enough to have a few bottles of and let age for quite a while.

Rosé De Gambrinus pours a fairly hazy deep pinkish red with a nice white/pink head. Fragrent raspberries and sour funk mix well in the aroma, hinting at the sour flavors to come. Almost puckering sourness right off the bat leads to more well blended, earthy, dry raspberry and and funky flavors. Very complex and hard to describe. The sourness lingers and puckers just a bit more as it hits the back of the tongue. I usually avoid "fruit beers" but I knew this one would be different and it was well worth the price.
