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 share. Aroma of tart red wine, pepper, cherry, vegetable, and gooseberry? Taste is brilliantly tart. Awesome dry finish, but clean.

Mmm, what a beer. Smells of cassis, sour taste with the cassis coming in quite strong in the aftertaste. Room temperature gives more than from the fridge.

McNeillR (2031) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Clear pinky purple with a fizzy bubbly ringed head. Firm Ribena nose, light tartness. Rich berry sweetness, proper hospital bed nourishment diluting juice and a fleshy acidic bitterness. Rattling acidic, though middling carbonation and clean lean sweetness. Leafy berry sweetness, very swift finish and linger is swift splashes of that Ribena fun times.

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 75 cl on March 14, 2014, thanks to Dunbar72! #255/552. BB 2015-12-16.
A bit hazy dark red color, nice pink head. Black currant leaves, black currant lemonade, acidic scent. Acidic, sour, black currants taste. Sour aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, very low bitternss. A bit salty.

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.

Bottle, rated from backlog. Dark purple with pink head. Aroma and taste: BIG cassis, lightly sour, some metallic/mineral notes, nearly no malt or hop at all. Very drinkable

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.
