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.

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 doesn’t quite stand up to that, but it’s 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.

intensywny porzeczkowy zapach z lekkimi dzikimi nutami. granatowy, zmętniony kolor z ciemnoróżową pianą. w smaku słodycz i kwaśność. bardzo wyraźny smak porzeczki (owoce i liście) z wyczuwalnymi dzikimi nutami.

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 24, 2014
Draught at The Porterhouse.Raspberry red, pink head, delightful. Lovely sweet and sour nose, raspberry highlights. Flavour is nice balance of sweet and sour, probably veering toward the sweet. Syrupy texture, a little carbonation. Sweet and sour finish. Nice.

Bottle pour. Red carbonated with a good head and nice lacing. Smells very sweet and fruity berries. Silky and lightly carbonated on the palate. Fruit taste that is very sweet.

SlimHabib (151) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle pour. Cloudy ruby red color with decent pink head. Strong fruit aroma (similar to a sangria). Taste has an instant sweet taste but becomes overpoweringly sweet with a strong sour taste. Not what I would look for in a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Calisky (697) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2014
Couleur de lilas sombre, forte mousse. Bon nez de cassis sucré. Gout de cassis sucré très acidulé en fin de bouche. Tres forte pétillance. Très bonne, digne des Lindemans

Dunkel lilafarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig nach Blaubeeren, säuerlich, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

Tolles Lambic. Gerucht fruchtig, aber etwas komisch. Geschmacklich dafür schöne Säure, tolle Früchte, gute Balance. Sehr süffig und tolle Kohlensäure.

Bitter currant taste and slight yeasty taste at onset. The fruit is the star here.Good head and lacing.

minutemat (1627) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
25cl bottle @ Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep purple with large purple head. Very rich, sickly sweet blackcurrant taste and slightly fizzy which was a bit off-putting. Don’t think I’ll feel a yearning for this any time soon.
