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.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass.

Pours a hazy light pink colour, with a nice white head.

Smells fruity and funky.

Tastes very crisp, dry and tart. Sour yeast and a very subtle raspberry taste.

Overall a very nice, refreshing drink. Love me some Cantillon.
