LIMIT 1 BOTTLE PP
Blend of lambics and raspberries - 200 g of raspberries per litre of beer.
Beer with a slightly acidic, fruity and fragrant taste.
Just like kriek, the “fruitiness” of Rosé de Gambrinus is at its best when the beer is young. With age, the lambic will take the upper hand, but this is at the expense of the fruit component.
"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."
