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.

nihtila (2095) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle from Belgian Beer Factory. Pours deep purple with pini head. Nose and taste are strong blackcurrant, light wheat and yeast, tart and cery sweet. It is a nice drink but not maybe a real lambic and it is very sweet indeed.

15.09.2015, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice light purple creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, black currants, grass, berry skin, minerals, old cellar, weeds. Taste is sour-ish sweet fruity, black currants, soda powder, sorrel, berry skin, sugar, grass. Slightly dry and fresh mouthfeel, but with kind of a metallic aftertaste. Very nice for the low ABV.

tricksta_p (2420) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of heavy blackcurrant, sugar, cassis. Flavour is sugary sweet and medium sour. Drinkable, but a shame about the added sugary sweetness.

Idiosynkrasie (5332) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2015
250ml bottle. Murky dark purple colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, fruity and slightly spicy black currant aroma, hints of tartness and leafy spciness of corresponding shrubs and parings. Taste is sweet-and-sour fruity, black currant notes, sherbet character, a sugary touch. Nice.

Pours purple opaque colour with pinky creamy head. Aroma of caramel, bilberry. Similar is flavor: Sugary sweet with sourish dry / sweet finish. Good for hot summer days, but this is not true lambic-Fruit.
