Details

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.

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.

Strictly limited to two bottles per customer.

Big aroma of sour raspberry with a dash of cherry, along with some sweeter raspberry and horse blanket. Taste is really good, perfect amount of sour with a good balance between raspberry flesh and leather. One of the best fruit lambics I've had, just a tad short of Cantillon's Kriek.
Can't beat cantillon

I don't mean to state the obvious but even by sour beer standards this beer is extremely tart. A biting vinegar like astringent finish that for some one who is trying to begin drinking sour beer is a challenge. It's a stunning beer perfectly made. I'd start with Salty Kiss or Calypso however for your first sour.
Great
