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.

neongolden (888) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
(750ml batch #14 bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Oct 13 2015) Pours very hazy deep burgundy with a moderate, lasting medium pink head and some lace. Aroma has obvious black currant/cassis core, a bit tannic, some sour black cherry, musty notes with light Brett funk, touch of oak and oxidation and a bit of lacto as well. On the palate it’s again led by jammy cassis with a bit of dark cherry and blueberry, light lemony lacto sourness, oak, musty but not really funky, touch herbal. Finish is fairly soft and round, lacto, black currant tartness, no real aggressive sourness or funk. Light to medium body with farly soft carbonation. Fruit extraction is really nice here, it’s like a cassis lambic without the aggressive funk profile. If anything a little mild as a result, but it’s elegant and I like it!

_angst_ (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2012
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whisky 2012. Pours hazy ruby red with a small pinkish white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is refreshing and fruity with black currants, hay, lemon juice, red currants, lemon zest, dry soil and hints of barnyard. Taste is sour and fruity with black and red currants, lemon juice, hay, crackers, barntard, lemon zest and brett. Mouthfeel is tart, dry and light bodied. Finish is slightly sour, dry, tart and fruity with lemon juice, black and red currants, hay and hints of brett. Nothing too complex but damn freshly fruity and nice. After trying 5 beers from Brekeriet I find myself looking forward to what’s next even though nothing has blown me away so far. But I just can’t deny how excited I am to see someone take the initiative to start Swedens first modern style farmhouse brewery. Keep up the good work. I will definitely try to find whatever you release.

330ml bottle, #142. Pours a dark ruby shade with a beautiful pink lasting head. Aroma is a bit heavy on the vinegar notes but also has blackberries, blueberries and cherries in reserve. Puckering sour taste with great fruit character. Very tasty! Glad I got the chance to try this.
