4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 750ml brown bottle with a foil sealed cap, labelled batch 3 numbered #124/552, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark ruby red with a China pink head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of black currants and barnyard. Flavour of black currants and a hint of lemon, sour cherries and vinegar. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and heavy sourness. Palate is light-medium bodied, soft carbonation. A vinous sour beer, with a prominent flavour of black currants. Reminds me of home-made unsweetened black currant juice. Brekeriets Cassis is well brewed and delicious, despite that the flavour is uncomplicated.

Draft. A hazy red beer with a pinkish head. The aroma has notes of black currant and brettanomyces. The flavor is acidic with notes of black currant, wet wood, and brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish. Boring.

Draft at Mikkeller and friends. Refreshingly sour but the sourness does´t become to much. Great black currant flavour!

On tap at M&F. Pours a murky redish color with a pink head. Aroma is malty and fruity. The taste is of malt and lots of citrus fruits. Medium body and carbonation is above average. Aftertaste is dry, tart and acidic and the finish is pretty long. Not my favourite type of beer, but it’s always fun to try something different.

Doftar: bär, svartvinbär. Smakar: som bubblig svartvinbärssaft. Mycket trevlig öl. Passar till ren och kött som efterätt. Måste upplevas av den som vill kombinera öl/saft.
