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.

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2013
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.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Bruce. It pours deep, cloudy red-purple with a small white head. The nose is dark cherry, blackcurrant, jam, sweet candy and candyfloss. The taste is sharp lemon, Granny Smith apple, cherry, blackcurrant, touch of spice, sweat and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice sweet-sour balance. Good deal of sharp tartness, which I rather like. Tasty stuff.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks Leighton. Opaque dark cherry red beer. Residual pink head. Squashed cherry and piss on the nose. This carries over to the taste - tart cherry and unmistakeable urea. Dry finish. Much too pissy! Bleh!

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
330ml bottle, #142. Pours a dark ruby shade with a beautiful pink lasting head. Aroma is a bit heavy on the vinegar notes but also has blackberries, blueberries and cherries in reserve. Puckering sour taste with great fruit character. Very tasty! Glad I got the chance to try this.
