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.

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Pours a lovely, deep bloody ruby-red with a fine, frothy pink head. Hefty ripe and tangy berry aroma, some herbs and pepper. Light sweet flavor, some tangy berries, a bit of peppery spice, some herbs, cherries, sweat. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Tangy and lightly drying to finish, some dry berries, cherries and raspberries, grape skins, sweaty funk. Pretty good beer on the whole.

Reddish colour with pink foamy head. Aroma of sour fruits. Flavour has fruity sourness and bitterness (from the blackcurrant seeds?).

Klimaet (222) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2014
Pours deep red with a pink head. Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrant and some cherries. Slightly yeasty but mostly just sweet berries. Taste is tart blackcurrant up front, some cherry-like notes to it aswell, dry fruity sweet and tart finish. Simple but delischious.

Borefts Bier Festival 2014. Deep red to purple body with a pink head. Aroma of blackcurrant, grapefruit, nice tartness. Taste is fresh and fruity, sour, dominated by blackcurrant but there’s also grapefruit and raspberries here, clean dry berry finish. A really nice one!

Mmm. So juicy. A dark red pour with light head. Holy crap so fruity and juicy in taste. I get the currants but I also get strawberries and a little bit of blackberries. Super drinkable. I want loads more. Thanks @adamjackson.
