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.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/16/2013. Pours fairly clear dark red color with a 2 finger dense dark pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light strreaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart blackberry, black currant, red grape, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of big authentic berry fruitiness, candi sugar, and light earthy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart blackberry, black currant, red grape, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of blackberry, black currant, red grape, candi sugar, hay, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and robustness of big authentic berry fruitiness, candi sugar, and light earthy yeast notes; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, fairly slick, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an excellent sweetened fruit Lambic style. All around great robustness and balance of authentic berry fruitiness, candi sugar, and light earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bardzo rzadko sięgam po piwo w stylu lambic. Może dlatego, że jest kiepska dostępność. Lindemans to chyba najpopularniejsza marka. I ta jest dość łatwa do nabycia. Nawet w marketach. Kiedyś próbowałem Krieka, ale dość dawno i "z kija". Nie pamiętam jakie były moje wrażenia, więc można uznać, że Cassis to mój pierwszy owocowy lambic. Po przelaniu do szkła ukazał się dość nietypowy zestaw - fioletowe piwo z różową pianą. Pachniało porzeczkami już z daleka i był to bardzo przyjemny aromat. Pierwsze łyki były dość szokujące - bardzo kwaśne porzeczki, z niewielkim słodkim niuansem. Wydaje mi się, że nieco cytryny też się tam znalazło. Choć piwo smakuje specyficznie, nie ma w nim praktycznie goryczki, świetnie przywróciło mnie do życia w gorący wieczór. Ciekawe doświadczenie.

Vychladená fľaška, tmavočervená farba, hustá pena, ovocná vôňa. Chuť čiernych ríbezlí, jemná kyslosť, príjemná sladkosť. Chutilo.

McWorta (757) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 18, 2015
Deep red colour with a pink rocky medium lasting head, good lacings. Black currant is predominant on the nose but also leaves room for wood and somewhat funky yeast aromas. Faintly CO2 propelled faiding quickly offering a slick texture and a light-medium body. Fruity blackcurrant sweetness with some tart dryness. Medium dry ffeuity finish.

psilosophy (523) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JAN 16, 2015
Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur betterave rouge, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. L’ aspect lambic est écrasé par l’ arôme du cassis , au demeurant très convaincant. Une attaque sucrée juste ce qu ’il faut et un joli retour acide avec les arômes du cassis qui se développent. Trouvée à l’ entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

Boxereddy (190) - BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2015
Donkerrood bier met kleine schuimkraag. Sterke geur van zwarte bessen, ruikt zuur maar ook zoet. Smaak van zwarte bessen, begint een beetje zoet, maar wel iets meer zuur bij de afdronk. Bijna nectar!
