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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a deep red with a slight haze and a warm pinkish - or even purple - head. A vague whiff of barnyard in the nose, but the blackcurrant totally dominates. Medium body, dry and slightly tart with massively fresh blackcurrant. Minerally, even salty, with a dry tartness. Very interesting - but as always I’d love it even funkier. But full of promises as always from Brekeriet. 220413

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to Bruce. It pours deep, cloudy red-purple with a small white head. The nose is dark cherry, blackcurrant, jam, sweet candy and candyfloss. The taste is sharp lemon, Granny Smith apple, cherry, blackcurrant, touch of spice, sweat and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice sweet-sour balance. Good deal of sharp tartness, which I rather like. Tasty stuff.

Svartvinbär i doften så det sjunger om det. Även smakbilden domineras av svartvinbär. Inte så funkig som väntat. Bra jobbat!
