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.

Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle thanks to Andreas Andy Snow #029/500, 25/01/14. Vibrant cherry red with a moederately sized off white covering. Nose is punchy berry fruit, soured berries, bitter raspberry, tarte blackcurrant, dank straw, earthy. Taste comprises bitter red bery fruit mash up, lactic tang, soured blackcurrants, musty tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying finish. Decent enough sour, lots of fruit and not too dank to be top of the pile, but a good effort none the less.

Pinball (10846) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken. clear red, small white head with a red hue. fresh black currant and black currant jam. also a faint beery note, but not much sour going on in the nose. Flavor is fruity sour, some fruity peely real citrussy notes that work very well, and makes it seem super fresh, the beer part of the flavor is quite bretty bitter, but not so dominant, flavor is definetly somewhat different than similar belgian brews, this being much less sour and tart.
