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.

Bottle from Emil, thank you very much! Yields a dark red, ember color with a purple note to it, and a thin head. leaving back a decent lacing. The aromas unleash an intense, ripe fruitiness of cassis berries, providing also darker, more matured stone qualities. While it has a recognizable tart note, its not too present on its own, but illustrates the present fruit. Smells actually quite sweet, with lots of fruity, slightly fermented, sugared cassis berries. Taste and smell compliment each other perfectly, as the flavors of the beer are more sour than the nose revealed. Begins with a tart acidity, leathery malts and a good load of barnyard funk. The fruitiness is still very present, with a short earthy, sweet peak, which then turns slightly dry, very sour without discarding its stone qualities. Cassis berries are integrated outstandingly well, recognizable at every stage of drinking the beer. While evolving from sweet, to earthy, to dry, the fruit is always the centerpiece of the taste. Even though the beer finishes with a crazy long lasting, tongue quenching sourness, the fruits, now relieved of all sweetness still interacts well with the tartness.

gyllenbock (5229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Slightly hazy deep red with a small pinkish head. I really liked this one. Really a lot of sour berries in both the aroma and taste. Not as sweet as many similar beers can be. Very refreshing and drinkable. Lovely stuff.

VsXsV (2577) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival. Clear, deep red/blue/pink liquid with small to medium pink head. Aroma of cassis/black currant, barnyard, leather (funk), raspberries and lemon. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of black currant and funk. Great! Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Best Swedish fruit beer I’ve had.

Lilja (1855) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Gott, friskt, syrligt och surt. Mycket smak av svartvinbär lagom surhet och kolsyra med en lång eftersmak. Välbalanserad. Mer av detta tack. Roligt att Brekeriet vågar sig på denna typ av öl.

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.
