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.

Tap @ CBC 2014. Pours deep red with a small, staying pink head. Aroma has clear black currant, almonds, light tartness. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite light mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly tart and fresh, black currant, light pepper. Quite elegant.

>> Wow, beautiful pour of bright clear purple, pink foam. Nose is fresh grapefruit, zesty, ruby red grapefruit. Bright and enticing. Taste is bright raspberry, grapefruit, clean sourness. Palate is refreshing, restrained acid. Definitely the dark horse of our sour tasting.

SamTheBarrel (496) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2014
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.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2014
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!
