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.

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.

A hazy red colour with a small pink head. An aroma of black-currant, citrus and some floral notes. The taste is medium sour and medium bitter.

Draught @ SBWF. Pours a dark ruby red, with a pink head. Intensely fruity aroma, blackcurrant, cherry, citrus, funk, blackberry. Dry, medium bodied, low to mid bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, very tart taste, citrus, blackcurrant, lingonberry, funk. A bit tough, very tart and astringent, but lovely fruit character. I don’t really get all the hype about this one. (2013-10-03)

Intense dark purple color. Looks like unfiltered Zin. Quick disappaiting head. Smells like cassis with beers and sour kraut. definitely some tartness and wildness going on. Very fascinating. Intense cassis flavor, mildly tart, very like Ribina, but more intense. Interesting. Cassis just lingers. Love it for its uniqueness.

Dark red colour, slightest haze, pink head. Aroma of cassis, berries, hint of wooden stick, light funk. Tart flavour, astringent berry skins, cassis, berries, pips, grape skin, very light malts. Astringent finish, berries and grape skins. Nice!

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

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.

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.
