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.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle thanks to Andreas Andy Snow #029/500, 25/01/14. Vibrant cherry red with a moederately sized off white covering. Nose is punchy berry fruit, soured berries, bitter raspberry, tarte blackcurrant, dank straw, earthy. Taste comprises bitter red bery fruit mash up, lactic tang, soured blackcurrants, musty tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying finish. Decent enough sour, lots of fruit and not too dank to be top of the pile, but a good effort none the less.

Bottle #143. Aroma is fairly fruity with a strong berry character. Slight lactic acid note and a hint of barnyard. A slight hint of grain in the background. Pours a slightly cloudy dark red with a moderately thick, half inch tall pink head that steadily recedes. Flavor has a light acidity and a moderately strong fruit note. A hint of barnyard and a light graininess. Low bitterness and some lingering acidity. Light phenolic note present as well. Some earthy notes. Mouthfeel is light to medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright beer but I think I was hoping for more complexity to balance all the fruit notes. It is also a bit thin and watery. The cassis has a slightly odd finish that I am not used to in my fruited sours. Its berry but also a bit woodsy.

barn0216 (395) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A Very reddish brown color, nice foam but no lacing. The aroma is earthy with berry fruit, some funk. Flavor is also earthy, tart, dry. Kind of a light bell pepper taste in there which is strange, i suppose it results from the combination of other factors. Bold flavor, well done for what it is, not really my thing though.

Bottle with thanks to _angst_ from Summer Secret Santa! Shared at the Thursday mini-tasting, so I hope to get a couple more ratings posted soon! Pours hazy deep ruby with a small pink head and decent lacing. Aroma is definitely black currant, funk, lemon, earthy, mushrooms. Flavor is the same, pretty tart, lightly funky, quite dry overall. Unfortunately the mushroom character was a turnoff for me as I hate those things. Medium body.
