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.

From a bottle at GBWF 2013. Clear ruby, low pink head. Fresh earthy black currant aroma, some vague funk in the background. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium acidity. Now this is how you make a fruit beer!

NordicV (1138) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2013
Mörkt rödlila öl med ett rosa skum. Ser ut som en fruktig dessert eller bakelse. Doft av svarta vinbär, vinbärsblad tillsammans med en dammig funkighet och citronsurhet. Samma återkommer i smaken.

33 cl bottle I was lucky enough to get ordered to Systembolaget in Mölndal. BB 2015-01-03, sampled on March 30, 2013.
Bit hazy dark red color, big lasting inside of blueberry pinkish red head. Wonderful look! Sweet, mellow, black currant lemonade scent. Tart, berry, sweet, black currants lemonade taste.
You could fool someone that don’t like beer or alcohol with this one for sure! Can imagine this to be a fantastic summer drink, works well late Swedish winter too though.
Acidic tart finish. A bit bubbly, sort of smooth, tart mouthfeel. Low bitterness.
As my friends will say I’m not one to follow a hype much, but this I can understand why it has been talked up by so many, really hope to be able to have this one again. Very well made, and guys - very well done, be proud of this!

Bottle 75 cl on March 14, 2014, thanks to Dunbar72! #255/552. BB 2015-12-16.

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Gott, friskt, syrligt och surt. Mycket smak av svartvinbär lagom surhet och kolsyra med en lång eftersmak. Välbalanserad. Mer av detta tack. Roligt att Brekeriet vågar sig på denna typ av öl.

Röd med rosa skalle. Mkt smak av kurant. Klart förvånad över hur länge smaken satt kvar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
