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.

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 (593) - 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 its just like freshly opened blackcurrant jam, its 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 (2102) - 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.

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.

RW80 (1140) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
0,25cl bottle Appearance: Dark red with some violet tones, on top theree is a small light Pinkish frothy head which has a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma: Black Currant + light acidity, some earthy tones. Taste: Think Cassis soft drink, so sweet black currant but with some sour tones and a bit of tanine. The aftertaste is quite good and is long lasting black currant with some tanine. thin body, light sparkling carbonation. There is something which makes it artificial. Still a Typical Lindemans good fruit beer.
