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 rosÈ, dedicated not to Bacchus but to Gambrinus.

Arguably brewing the most sought-after beers in the world, Cantillon brewery's Jean Van Roy has near god-like status in the world of beer. Brussel's Cantillon is a lambic brewery, where the beer is exposed to natural yeasts in the air and left to ferment in small oak barrels for several years. Beers of different vintages are then blended to balance the sweetness and sourness.
