Brekeriet Cassis is a sour ale mainly fermented with Brettanomyces yeast. Black currant is added during the secondary fermentation and this yeast loves berries which is shown in the fantastic taste of the beer. Brekeriet Cassis is refermented in the bottle which gives a thin layer of yeast at the bottom of the bottle.

Grumlig röd/lila öl med rosa skum. Doft av svarta vinbär, citrus, surt. Grymt god i samma bana med vinbären som dominerar och en riktigt schysst surhet. Strävt slut. Gillas! @SBWF2015 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 750ml. Pours purple/pink/red with low pink head. Some lacing. Aroma is of mustard, vomit, fruits, metal, blood, coffee, blueberries. Taste is of acidity, black currant, blueberries. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Soft carbonation. Overall: Good, fruity. A tad tangy. Not really outstanding, but quite nice.

Thanks to VanJamer @ BA for this bottle! Pours a deep red with a pinkish rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is a bit weird with a slight "smoky" presence that is disturbing to me along with slight musty basement, oxidation and fruits (cassis). It gets better as it warms, though, with more cassis shining through. Taste is moderately acid and equally weird/awkward. For the first few sips I get tomato juice... Unsettling. After that, red fruits, jam and oak. Body and carbonation were average and mouthfeel is definitely vinous. Overall it got better as we went down the bottle but it was so weird that I might not be tempted to try again.

Luktar som koncentrerad svart vinbärssaft. Tydlig suröls karaktär med smak av svarta vinbär. Inte illa alls. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another top contender from Friday’s tasting. Didn’t know about this brewery until then, but this was fantastic.

From my backlogg: Draught at en Skånsk Ölfestival, BrewDog Bar, Gothenburg. A bit hazy reddish beer with an pinkish head. Sourish fruity cherry and lot of berries caramell earthy funky citrus aroma. Fruity sourish, black currant citrus earthy and a bit sweet flavour.

(750ml bottle, 2014 vintage, BB 2016-03-12, #59/252) Pours a clear ruby body with a small pinkish head. Aroma of blackberries, yogurt, and horse blanket. Flavor of blackberries, citrus, brett, and wood with a dry finish.

Fredd_an (221) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Roséfärgat huve med knepig gul ton ändå häftigt. Små bubblor ligger lent över vätskan. Trevlig Svartvinbärsdoft! Vilken syra! Torrt! Fantastisk Svartvinbärs smak! Äkta Svartvinbär känner man. Inget AI. Lätt i kropp. Man känner alla delar av vinbäret, skalen & bladen. Hela kalaset. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
