COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (20621) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2011
Bottled@The 2nd ES/CS Beer Tasting. (thanks MM!). Hazy orangeish golden colour with small fluffy head. Aroma is sour berries, some wood and mild notes of yeast. Flavour is quite similar with also some grains and fruity notes. Actually gets a bit better once warming up a bit. Pleasant fruit/berry beer.

madmitch76 (15342) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
4th July 2008. A frothy and crisp beer. The blackcurrant is quite mild. Best when very cold. A little watery which detracts.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 <i>2008-10-31, tasting at Papsoe, 6-5-6-3-14=34</i>Cloudy deep blond, huge head. Creamy aroma, milky, not fruity. Good mouthfeel, sweetish malt flavor, light sourness and fruitness, delicate, balanced, leading into a more balanced flavor; good but not surprising.


<i>2002-07-24, bottle at the brewpub, 7-5-7-4-14=37<i>
Served in a 75cl bottle, it comes with a tray of different sorts of cheese; poured by the waiter in 2 giant original glasses &&#35;40;look at the picture, each is about 1 litre&&#35;41;.
Hazy amber colour, giant head &&#35;40;at least 15 cm&&#35;41;, rocky, that sticks to the glass in a beautiful lace.
Nice aroma, not particularly strong: malt, fruits &&#35;40;cassis&&#35;41;. <i>Italian Doppio Malto</i> as a base &&#35;40;that means Bock beer&&#35;41;, corrected by the fruit and a hopping stronger than the average. The malt is quite good, leaving some sweetness, and participating in a good body structure; the fruit is discrete, the hop may be too strong and the bitterness hides the fruit.
As most of the beers from this brewery, it´s bottom fermented; the fruits come as a syrup, I heard that it´s produced by some farmer in Alto Adige region.

yngwie (13816) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle, 75cl. (RBNAG 07) It presented itself by acting volcano, and the beer that found its way into the glasses had a hazy, golden-orange body with a nice, big, dense, off-white head. A slightly sour aroma had a sweetish fruityness as well. There’s hints of cassis in the flavor, which was nice in a way, but too sour. Slightly astringent, medium full mouthfeel. A decent beer, but I find it too sour in a way not as pleasant as with true lambics. (071103)

Travlr (12352) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2010
1 pint 9.4 fluid ounce bottle - you do the math. Almost a gusher, but just missed. Muddy brown with giant chunks and floaties. Massive beige head that never settles. Aroma of hay, mud, fruit. Taste is very slightly sour, raspberry, fruitcake. Not bad.
