Mini-review: Rose de Gambrinus

There's a reason Cantillon is on every beer geeks radar - this stuff is seriously good.

Appearance - reddish pink, with a thick fluffy pink head.
Smell - Raspberries, lemons, funkiness.
Taste - Raspberries are prominent, with notes of cherries, red currants, lemons, tangerines, and clove. Acidic, and the fruit notes fade as it warms, giving way to some barnyard funk and hints of oak. Some acetic character in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Very dry, effervescently carbonated.

Overall, a fantastic framboise.
