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.

cmacklin (672) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy, dark red with a large, frothy, long lasting, pink head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of black currants, yeast and a hint of oak. Sweet flavour of black currants and sugar with a tart, acidic, dry oaky finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation.

Bottle, tasted three years ago. One of best of lindemans sweetened fruit lambics, but still pretty flat in complexity cous sugar.

Zlotta (1323) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2016
0.25 l bottle from ’Sterk Avondverkoop’, bottled in June 2015. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, pinkish head. Sourish-fruity, slightly sweetish aroma of black and redcurrant, elderberries and hints of wood and sorbet powder. Very sweet, slightly sourish, fruity taste of sorbet powder, elderberries, red and blackcurrant, followed by a short, sweetish-sourish finish with hints of wood. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Definitely one of the better non-authentic fruit lambics by Lindemans, but the excessive, rather artificial sweetness is still too much for me.

Decent Americanized lambic. Pours a deep rubbishy purple with an off white head. Aromas of blueberries, blackberries, currants and faint oak. Great bottle presentation with foil, cage, and cork. Faint Brett flavors with a dry, oak, hay finish.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Pretty good aromas, fruity and all. Not much to say. Great appearance, ruby colour. But poor foam. Taste is good, fruity, acidity. What you’d expect from a fruit beer, the yeast/hops taste doesn’t even exist, if I’d drank it without knowing it was a beer I may have told it’s something else, haha. Here comes my favourite part the palate, I feel the fruity taste everywhere in my mouth when I drink this beer and on the tip of my tong a little sweetness, followed by a little acidity/sweety mix. The taste stands quite for a long time for a fruit beer ! Especially on the tong. Lindemans for you ! Nice beer. If you like beers for the yeasty/hopy/malty side you should try something else. If you like fruits and delicate flavours and aromas rush for it.

25 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Plus, Culemborg. Dark pink/purple with a pink head. Black currant aroma. Black currant taste with just a hint of Lambic sourness. Not too sweet luckily. Nice fruit lambic

degbert (1589) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours reddish-purple -- quite a lovely shade, really -- with a light red-purple, fine-grained, lacy head. Nose is cassis, talc, elderflower, rose, lime, and a touch of sparkling grape juice. On the tongue, it’s quite tart, a touch sweet, and very mouth-watering; intensely flavored with both fruit and fruit skin flavors, it goes a touch astringent towards the center of the palate then comes back with a rush of salivating fruit towards the end. Finish is long and tart. The best of the Lindemans I’ve had.
