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.

The aroma is of blackcurrant, sweet and a little sour. The colour of blackcurrant juice, the head huge and stable. Very sour indeed, a lemony kind of sourness, and not much of anything else. Medium body, a squeezing kind of feeling on the tongue, very little carbonation remains in the glass, tart and sour finish. At least not very artficial and not sickeningly sweet, so thatís good, I suppose.

Interessante lambic alla frutta con aggiunta di zucchero. Colore vernacia senza schiuma. Al naso molto fruttata. In bocca corpo medio leggero bassisimo tenore alcolico ed aciditŗ bilanciata dallo zuchero aggiunto. Il sapore ricorda un succo di cassis anzi che una birra. X gli amanti delle lambic acide io la sconsiglierei ma invece risulta ottima come bevanda rinfrescante e dissetante.

Martin243 (785) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
37.5 cl bottle at home. Purple with a lighter purple head. Blackcurrant aromas and flavours are quite restrained compared to the raspberries in this breweries framboise. Fruity, tangy and refreshing.

Fritz123 (1032) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca. Chalice at home. Pours a wonderful bright reddish purple with a pink-red head that didnít last long. Slight lacing. Aroma of the black currents is strong with yeasts and tart berries. The taste was good with the black currents dominant but it seems very sweet for my tastes. It does finish slightly sour, but still more candy-like sweet than I usually like. Moderate body, heavy carbonation.

VDuquerroux (312) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle, 25cL. A dark garnet beer with a medium pink head. Medium persistence. Lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, sugar, acid note. Flood of sugary sweetness over light lasting sourness. Medium body, thin sticky texture, soft carbonation, sugary finish with a light sour touch. Overall, Iím disappointed : too sweet, makes me think of a cream of black currant liqueur or a syrup with just a small amount of fizzy water.

MRMedellin (209) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 27, 2014
Good presentation, bottle with cork. Once is opened strong cherry, raisins and honey aromas are felt. The body is medium - full, and the flavor has strong citric notes, with a nice bitterness. The aftertaste is quite sour, but at the same time is modulated by some light malty flavor, which is only felt at the end.

375 ml bottle from The Party Source. Pours a deep blood red with a dark pinkish/reddish purple head. I like the nose on this one better than the Kriek. Black currants are complemented with a little sweetness but a good amount of fresh tartness and a bit of earth. The flavor doesnít quite stand up to that, but itís still pretty good. Not as sweet as the Kriek, and also more oaky. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a juicy, somewhat tart mouthfeel. I liked this better than I expected to.
