Brasserie Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus 2019/2020
The Rosé de Gambrinus is a fruit lambic, also called Framboise, brewed with raspberries. For this, approximately 200g of raspberries per litre of Lambik are macerated for 1-2 months on 20-month old Lambik and then filled into bottles with a third of young Lambik for secondary fermentation. The resulting Lambik is wonderfully fruity, light but at the same time complex. When stored properly, which is quite possible for several years, the Rosé de Gambrinus develops an even more complex character. A sherry-like complexity and a still dry body become a very special beer experience.

Cantillon is certainly one of the most sought-after Belgian breweries among Lambic lovers. The brewery was founded in 1900 and today is managed by Jean-Pierre van Roy. On the historic brewing plant only spontaneously fermented beers are produced, which are stored and fermented for several years in wooden barrels. Spontaneously fermented beers can only be brewed in winter, so Cantillon can only be produced in winter. This type of brewing, the most important ingredient of which are the wild yeasts from the air, was already almost extinct worldwide and has survived in Belgium at a few breweries. Cantillon is very difficult to obtain due to the high demand, the time-consuming production and the limited capacity.
