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.

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

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.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Deep purple with light purple head. Lots of sweet cassis, sour berries, light hay and cardboard, sugary, light dough, red berries. Quite sweet and under medium sour. Medium bodied with slight sticky feel. Smells not that good but tastes ok.

ebone1988 (945) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Aroma is all currant juice, sweet and light. Appearance is dark red, pink head, way off for the style but expected for Lindemans. Taste is currant juice, slightly sour but nothing close to the style. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium body, finishes with a sucralose sweetness. Overall, not even close for the style but tasty like juice. Hard to complain.

Bottle. Pours deep dark red, with a creamy red head. Aroma is tart black currants, musty fruit peel and notes of earth. Medium to full body, with average carbonation. Flavour is tart black currants and berries, as well as a light earthy funkiness. Very berry, but lacking depth.

YigSvartka (269) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
Opaque ruby purple hue with a large frothy pink head. Pronounced strawberry, raspberry, cherry, malt, as well as a slightly sweet and tart aroma. Mid bodied and syrupy. Excellent lambic with notes of the previously mentioned berries and a pleasant balance of tartness and sweetness with robust carbonation.
