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.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Pours a lovely, deep bloody ruby-red with a fine, frothy pink head. Hefty ripe and tangy berry aroma, some herbs and pepper. Light sweet flavor, some tangy berries, a bit of peppery spice, some herbs, cherries, sweat. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Tangy and lightly drying to finish, some dry berries, cherries and raspberries, grape skins, sweaty funk. Pretty good beer on the whole.

[5/5/13] Bottle at Mikkeler & Friends in Copenhagen. Bottle #758. Dark red-purple with a lovely pink head. Lovely aroma with brett, oak and lots of cassis. Great sour flavor with oak, brett, lots of cassis and a slightly lemony finish. Rounded-mouthfeel. Wonderful.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2013
First American rating, aw yeah, shared by Johan. Gorgeous pour, deep maroon with pink foam. The cassis hits huge, bright and juicy and rich, but is balanced out with controlled minerality and a light sourness. Absurdly drinkable, almost soda-like, and reminds me of the burgeoning "Florida Weiss" movement. Delicious.

JanLaursen (3053) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl, at Papsø, thanx. Beautiful light red with a pink head. What a lovely aroma, fruity, light tarty and intense, bringing back happy childhood memories of picking up black currants for my mum. Very dry,light tart flavor, sooo fruity, with a nice touch of citrus and a little woodyness for balance. Very good.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a deep red with a slight haze and a warm pinkish - or even purple - head. A vague whiff of barnyard in the nose, but the blackcurrant totally dominates. Medium body, dry and slightly tart with massively fresh blackcurrant. Minerally, even salty, with a dry tartness. Very interesting - but as always I’d love it even funkier. But full of promises as always from Brekeriet. 220413
