COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brekeriet White Label
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.

Inköpt på ölbutiken/CPH. Färgen är röd. Doftar och smakade fantastiskt gott. Helt värd pengarna.

2014-06-28, Bottle at CapFlu’s Blomster Bash, 7-4-5-2-11=29
Cloudy red color with compact head. Nice cassis aroma. Feety sour flavor, trainwreck.

2014-01-26, draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg, 8-4-6-3-13=34
Hazy dark ruby color with large pink head. The cassis aroma is deep and very nice, with a lemony edge. The mouthfeel is dryish, the cassis flavor is moderate, the acidity low; there is an impression of herbs (sage).
Overall, the aroma is intense but the flavor is bland.

Notes of wildflowers, herbs, black currants, cherries, dandelion, grass, tannins, and lactic acid. Light-bodied, with a dry, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Awesome stuff.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Offering shared at RateBeer Grand Tasting 2014 (St. Louis, MO). Pours a deep crimson berry hue, a frothy pinkish head dies to a fluffy ring, sticks around and laces well. Deeper glow, darker gentle hazy middle. Aromas are blackberry, currant and lactic acidity. Touches of oak, gentle cobwebs and grass. Some bready maltsn potent sour dark and blackberry like fruit, a bit fuzzy. Initial is medium bodied, richer blackberry and currant, fruity and sour elements mix well. Touches of tannic berryskin, touches of funk and prickly tartness. Backend is a bit fruity, darker with blackberry, a bit seedy and gentle sweetness. Sourness is quite appropriate, on point with tasty play between sour and funk, gentle sweetness. Tasty.
