Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus

4.15
6
Our sommelier’s favourite Cantillon beer, the Rosé de Gambrinus is exactly how a raspberry lambic should be. Much less fruit-forward than other fruit lambics, this raspberry lambic is a perfect balance of dry tartness with a lovely raspberry accent. Boldly tart, sour, and “funky” flavours are complemented by lightly sweet and tart raspberries. Very dry, crisp, and heavily carbonated, once accustomed to this style, the Rosé de Gambrinus will be a hard one to put down.

The process to make this beer is identical to the one to make Kriek, macerating raspberries in 2 year old Lambic to make a fantastic thirst quencher. When young, the Rose de Gambrinus will be full and fruity while later on, the sour lambic taste will become dominant.

    I love sour beers and this was perfect a nice mix of sour and fruity. (Posted on 30/01/2016)

    Opens your eyes while closing your cheeks. By golly its sour but the raspberry thats froths up your nose prepares you a little so after a few sips you begin to get the hang of it. (Posted on 17/07/2015)

  3. Fruity and sour Review by Markiemak
    Rating

    This is a bit of a case sensation to normal beer drinkers so sour but with a set rasberry flavour. I love to experiment and would definitely recommend this one (Posted on 25/04/2015)

    I thought I liked sours but this one really does crank it up.

    I can tell that in time it will probably become a favourite, but right now it's a little too much for me to enjoy.

    The quality comes through though. (Posted on 23/04/2015)

  5. Cantillons Finest Review by aberdeenlad

    This is probably in my top 3 Cantillon beers. Its an amazing sour beer, with really nice fruitiness coming through. Drink quickly after buying as fruit flavours degrade over time. Within a year should be fine. (Posted on 26/03/2015)

  6. It's a framboise, Jim, but not as we know it ... Review by interzen

    Let's get it straight - if you don't like your beers sour then you're not going to like this. End of story.

    Pour it out and it looks like red wine vinegar, and at first sniff you'd probably think it was red wine vinegar with added raspberries. Get past that, though, and you've got possibly the best raspberry beer in existence.

    None of your artificial flavourings or fruit syrups here, this is tooth-dissolvingly, toe-curlingly sour but the combination of raspberries, gueuze-like funk and high carbonation make this work superbly.

    An acquired taste, to be sure, but well worth investigating if you're remotely interested in Belgian beer. (Posted on 26/02/2015)

Quick postage and great product!
Fast delivery, great selection of beers at a good price.
After ordering the beers on a Wednesday evening, I phoned Beer Hawk first thing on Thursday to say that I would be out all day on Friday so not to deliver the beers that day. It was agreed that delivery would be on the following Monday. However, when I returned home on Friday the beers had been delivered and had been left on the doorstep. That day we had a torrential downpour of rain and the boxes of beer were soaking wet. The labels on the beer were peeling off and all the leaflets had to be dried page by page. The beers were purchased as a present for my husband and I am disappointed that the beers are no longer packaged in boxes and I have had to spend alot of effort trying to make them look presentable.
