COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lindemans Cassis is a lambic made from local barley, unmalted wheat, and wild yeast. After spontaneous fermentation the lambic is aged in oak. Black currants are added creating a secondary fermentation and yielding an ale of exceptional flavor and complexity.

wiedrzensky (141) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 16, 2015
Shared bottle. Dark ruby with thick head. Aroma of black currant, wood, leaves. Taste ia sweet, dry, almost like black currant juice, with some acidic notes but not sour at all. Great.

Kolor bordowy, ciemne czerwone wino. Piana niewielka, ró?owa, niezbyt trwa?a, topniej?c pozostawia na powierzchni delikatny ko?uch. Aromat to oczywi?cie czarna porzeczka, plus wytrawne, winne akcenty z odrobin? kurzu z piwnicy. Smak podobnie jak w aromacie, intensywna czarna porzeczka, kwa?na, wytrawna, a? cierpka, do tego troch? posmaku "drzewnego" W finiszu ka?dego ?yku pojawia si? delikatna s?odka nuta, co? jakby mix kompotu ze s?odkim sokiem z czarnej porzeczki. Gdzie? w tle mo?na doszuka? si? jeszcze delikatnych akcentów cukru kandyzowanego. Wysycenie wysokie, mo?e nawet troch? za bardzo, ale to moja opinia. Jak dla mnie ten Lindemans jest bardzo przyjemny i niesamowicie orze?wiaj?cy, my?l?, ?e móg?by by? idealny na upalne dni.

brnandersen (2276) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Flute. Lovely, deep red colour with a dense, creamy pink head. Sweet aroma with black currant, yeasts, a discrete wooden note, sugar and black currant juice. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Rather good for a 3.5 % beer. Finishes dry and slightly acidic with black currants, juice and sugar. Tart enough to be refreshing - not sticky at all.

Holmen1 (3193) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: rødlig ravfarge med fint, rosa fiml/gardinskum. Nydelig aroma av mørke bær, og det kjennes også på smaken at de har vært generøse i bruken av solbær. Enorm smaksrikdom og drikkeglede i bare 3,5%. En superb avslutning på denne kvelden hvor vi stakk om en dobbelbock og tappet to andre øl. Lambic er i ferd med å bli en av mine favorittstilarter.

Holmen2 (1547) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Dark red to violet. Dense pink head and lacing. Very strong aroma of fine blackcurrant juice. Exceptionally well balanced with moderate sourness in taste. Very quaffable. Superb!!!

Kauge (546) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2015
Small bottle from Sip in Tallinn. Pours a beautiful dark red with a pink head. The head drops fast but leaves a nice layer and some dense lacing. On the nose it’s just like freshly opened blackcurrant jam, it’s also got a woody note. High acidity, very (fruity, not sugary) sweet. Fresh blackcurrant taste. Body thick of sweetness, the high carbonation helps cut through it, I really-really like it, I consider this a perfect Saturday afternoon (hangover) drink. This, together with the apple version (which I enjoyed even more).

NosirIwont (2050) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. 3.5%. Best before 28.11.15. Pours a dark reddish amber, with a dark pink head. Good lacing. Aroma is blackberries! And not artificial! Sourish flavour with more blackberries. Same finish, dry. Overall good, if a bit juice-like. All about the blackberries, but pulls it off rather well. 28.02.15.

asceticbrewer (65) - Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2015
12oz, bottled Nov 19, 2013, to tulip. Pours a dark purple/ berry red with a pinkish purple head. Aroma is sour, sweet berry. Taste is tart, with huge berry taste. A heavy, tart jam like sweetness hangs out in your mouth for quite a while after taking a sip. A slightly acidic sourness sits lurking behind the jam.
