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.

pentaz (1253) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear red with a partly lasting and spotted lacing frothy small almost purple head. Aroma is black currants, elderberries and a hint of leathery brett. Taste very light sweet and light+ tangy. Body is light, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes short and very dry and balanced. Reminds me mostly of delicious homemade black currant juice.

Bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Thanks to Martinus. Lovely maroon color like red wine, with lace. Huge cassis nose, a bit of acid. Medium sour flavor, again huge cassis, a bit dusty. The fruit flavor is overwhelming but lovely. Can’t really find the beer, but very tasty.

TheJestersBeer (2156) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2013
Draught @ SBWF. Pours a dark ruby red, with a pink head. Intensely fruity aroma, blackcurrant, cherry, citrus, funk, blackberry. Dry, medium bodied, low to mid bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, very tart taste, citrus, blackcurrant, lingonberry, funk. A bit tough, very tart and astringent, but lovely fruit character. I don’t really get all the hype about this one. (2013-10-03)

A Very reddish brown color, nice foam but no lacing. The aroma is earthy with berry fruit, some funk. Flavor is also earthy, tart, dry. Kind of a light bell pepper taste in there which is strange, i suppose it results from the combination of other factors. Bold flavor, well done for what it is, not really my thing though.

Draft at Mikkeller and friends. Refreshingly sour but the sourness does´t become to much. Great black currant flavour!

Tap @ CBC 2014. Pours deep red with a small, staying pink head. Aroma has clear black currant, almonds, light tartness. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite light mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly tart and fresh, black currant, light pepper. Quite elegant.

02-MAY-2014, draft @CBC, Blue Session. Red with a huge pink head. Beautiful. Aroma is cassis, very fruity. Taste the same. Quite simple. Not a lot of brett. Thin body, soft carbonation. OK, but not all the way up with the best.
