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.

Bottle (750 ml). Bottle 12-03-2016. Bottle 173 / 252. Thanks to Johan for this one! Hazy pinkish/purple with a medium purple head and good lacing. Aroma is of cassis, floral notes, light leafy presence and light oak. Taste is of cassis, floral notes, leafy notes and oak. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry and fruity finish. The best feature of this beer is the balance. Interesting, but I was expecting a bit more.
