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.

Svartvinbär i doften så det sjunger om det. Även smakbilden domineras av svartvinbär. Inte så funkig som väntat. Bra jobbat!

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Thanks to Martinus. Lovely maroon color like red wine, with lace. Huge cassis nose, a bit of acid. Medium sour flavor, again huge cassis, a bit dusty. The fruit flavor is overwhelming but lovely. Can’t really find the beer, but very tasty.

77ships (3680) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
Courtesy of Martinus. 35 cl. bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Simple but effective design. Appearance is quite incredible, Deep cranberry cassis with sadly a non-lasting pink head. Nose is pretty much pure cassis juice from a pack, incredible with a light tart, really nice. Taste is touch natural sweet cassis juice, slight bitter cassis & grape skins, lightly bitter herbs, grape wines, blackcurrant, hint brett. Fine brett, big juice-like. Body is very easy, very lovely beer, bit more juice than beer but when something is as good as this one, I do not care.

On tap at Brekeriet Bar. At last... :) Red-pink with no head. Aroma is like tart home made black currant juice. Taste is tart and fresh with a lot of black currant. Dry mouth feel, light body and carbonation. Long and dry after taste.
Lived up to the high expectation but a little more carbonation wouldn’t hurt.

When I drink this beer, I think back to my childhood when my mom made black currant juice. Need I say more? Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2013
Sampled at GBWF 2013, from my huge backlog. Clear dark red with a pink porous head. Currants and sour cherries, dry, woody, a touch of sweat. Very nice!

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2013
Drucken på Brekeriet bar i Djurslöv. Äntligen! Doft av solmogna svartvinbär och syrlig jäst. Låg kolsyra. Smaken är stram, syrlig, torr, lätt och full av fina svartvinbärsnyanser. Skal, kärnor, fruktkött, syran finns där. Lite kort eftersmak om man ska klaga på någon. Riktigt god.

Bottle. Pours clear red with a partly lasting and spotted lacing frothy small almost purple head. Aroma is black currants, elderberries and a hint of leathery brett. Taste very light sweet and light+ tangy. Body is light, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes short and very dry and balanced. Reminds me mostly of delicious homemade black currant juice.
