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.

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.

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.

From a bottle at GBWF 2013. Clear ruby, low pink head. Fresh earthy black currant aroma, some vague funk in the background. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium acidity. Now this is how you make a fruit beer!

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.

Vignale (2061) - 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.

Doftar: bär, svartvinbär. Smakar: som bubblig svartvinbärssaft. Mycket trevlig öl. Passar till ren och kött som efterätt. Måste upplevas av den som vill kombinera öl/saft.

Stockholm Beer & Whiskey 2012: Fantastisk fruktig doft med tydliga svarta vinbär. Lätt fruktig smak och en trevlig syrlighet. Mycket bra!!

Bottle sample @ SBWF 2012. Pours red with a touch of pink. Hazy. With a slightly pink head. Sweet and sour aroma. Very fruity. Smells like a whole dessert! The aroma reminds me of some well known Lost Abbey sours. The taste is enormously fruity. Dry like berry seeds. Sour. Thick bodied, yet quite light.

33 cl bottle I was lucky enough to get ordered to Systembolaget in Mölndal. BB 2015-01-03, sampled on March 30, 2013.
Bit hazy dark red color, big lasting inside of blueberry pinkish red head. Wonderful look! Sweet, mellow, black currant lemonade scent. Tart, berry, sweet, black currants lemonade taste.
You could fool someone that don’t like beer or alcohol with this one for sure! Can imagine this to be a fantastic summer drink, works well late Swedish winter too though.
Acidic tart finish. A bit bubbly, sort of smooth, tart mouthfeel. Low bitterness.
As my friends will say I’m not one to follow a hype much, but this I can understand why it has been talked up by so many, really hope to be able to have this one again. Very well made, and guys - very well done, be proud of this!

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.
