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 (10987) - 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.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep red, small head. Fruity berry aroma. Starts fruity like berries, notes of raspberries, light sourish. Not too intense fruity. Well balanced finish. Nice!

Palme (3380) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Looks amazing with its pink / red slightly clouded body under a big and really lacing pink white head. Super nose. Not hard to identify the cassis, but it has also something slightly herbal and grassy to it. Mild lemonish but with a sweet berry thing in the back. Nice. Lovely black currant flavor. Not to sour in any way but it has that refreshing little kick it needs. Something that reminds me of cherries also. Soft traces if red wine vinegar and wood. Something you can drink lots and lots of. Long blackcurrants in the lingering dry aftertaste. Really glad I have another bottle of this that I’ll enjoy all by myself! 02.05.2014

Jaksmart (411) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. It pours a clear bright red color wit a thin crust of white foam. Aroma is a quite concentrated berry-cocktail, obviously dominated by the added blackcurrant, which comes through nicely. The tartness is particularly sharp and extremely clean and non-barnyardy. Just a bit of funk, but nicely clean. Taste is light and refreshing, also with a clean and delicate sourness that sticks on the palate nicely. Quite straigtforward and easy to drink, well balanced and well-brewed. I should have liked a faint hint of bitterness in the end, just for the extra balance, but that’s just me. Excellent!

Vestergaard (372) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014
On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours rubyred with a small pink head. Aroma has lots of cassis-juice, hay, brett. Really dry. Taste is Nice sour, dry with lots of rather indefinabel berry-notes. Raspberry, cassis etc. After taste is much like mixed sour berries. Tiggeling feel with High carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ninecats (159) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle 75cl at home. Pours slight hazy deep red with a medium pink head that settles quick and leaves a ring on the surface. Aroma is loads and loads of fresh tart berries (currant, blackberry), funky, yeasty and dusty tones in the background. Taste is tart berry, with again sour berries like currants and blackberry. A slight lactic sour tone, cherry-like, backed up with yeast, earth and funk. Ends tart and dry. Medium body, medium carbo with sharp bubbles. Extremely refreshing, very nice display of the fruitiness. Well done!
