Double amber malt produced by way of decoction, with approximately 6.5% alcohol by volume (17 Plato degrees). A small amount of Cassis syrup is added at the beginning of the fermentation with S. carlsbergensis. It is prematurely bottled to obtain high gas saturation, and matured for at least six months at a temperature of approximately 6-7 °C. As in the case of Amber Shock, this is not re-fermentation, but an exclusive procedure adopted by "Birrificio Italiano®" of Lurago Marinone .
Cassissona®" has been produced since 1999. It is made during the summer and served in wide-mouthed glasses with the appropriate dessert.

Holmen1 (4910) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2014
På Mandag i annen sep-14: uklar gyldenoransje med rødskjær i skummet. Solbærsødme og -fruktighet i aroma og smak. Mildt humlet og lett bitter ettersmak. En god sommerdrikk med særpreg, og farlig lett for sitt vitamininnold 6,5. Øl med antioksidanter må være kjempesunt.

Cloudy orange. Off-white head and lacing. Fruity aroma and taste with biscuits and fermented berries. Well-balanced and refreshing, with fine berries in aftertaste.

Leicht trübes dunkel rötlich-pinkes Bier mit pinker Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig, Waldbeeren, Johannisbeeren, etwas säuerlich, so ist auch der Geschmack.

gyllenbock (8026) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle, thanks Eddan. Hazy reddish with a creamy white head. The aroma was quite weak, some fruit. The taste was also weak, slightly tart. This one reminded of juice, very easy to drink.

@eddan: ganska diskret doft med en svag kryddig ton. Smaken är frisk men alldeles för svar och lite vattnig. Nja ok som torstsläckare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Di color arancio con cappello pannoso. Al naso si sente molto l’aroma sviluppato dalla frutta in fermentazione, acidità molto ben controllata, sentori di ribes. In bocca risulta più dolce rispetto a ciò che il naso percepisce. Si beve con piacere, ottima da aperitivo.

Draft at Alla Spina with PJ. Pours a light body with haze and white lacing. Aroma is berry, yeast, champagne - but pretty muted all together. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated with notes of over ripened fruits, berries, wheat and yeast. A bit plain.

kindacold (235) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
2008 Vintage. Pours golden orange with absolutely massive white foamy head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells fruity and malty. Cereal and currants on the nose. Tastes like grains and currants, some caramel and sweet candy notes. Almost no bitterness. Very light and fruity with lots of cream and cereal. Effervescent and smooth, with sweet finish.
