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.

250ml bottle from Beers Of Europe. Pours hazy red/purple with a thin pink head. Aromas of blackcurrant cordial, vimto, slight sour note. Taste has a much bigger sourness, lip-puckering. More big blackcurrant flavours, creamy texture and a smooth finish. Nice, for what it is.

boxofrane (1878) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours reddish purple with a medium sizes pink head that dissipates quickly to a film. The aroma smells like a mix of blueberries and raspberries.. this must be what a current is? The taste makes me think of a tart raspberry with a bunch of black berry juice on top. Very nice.

Great desert beer but not too sweet like some of the other fruit lambics. Best enjoyed in the fall.

chuckstout (235) - Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Aromas of funk, fruit, black current, wet hay, barnyard. Pours a crushed raspberry color with a spongy violet head great lacing. Sweet, barnyard, fruity, with a good body and mouthfeel. Complex, but a deliciously sweet beverage.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Flasche (375 ml). - Tiefrot mit hellviolettem Schaum. Köstlich fruchtige Johannisbeer-Nase. Im Geschmack dominieren süßsaure Johannisbeeren und eine leicht holzige Schärfe, unterstützt durch prickelnde Rezenz. Im Abgang noch mehr Lambic-Herbe. Sehr trocken, weinig, adstringierend; recht harsch aber nicht bitter. - Durchaus lecker, wenngleich kein Bier im strengen Sinn.

VinegarStroke (208) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle: Slightly corked with TCA. Low level so ignored that issue and scored the beer. Dense red, clear and a big pink head. Loads of gas. Lifted berry. Like old world or Chilean Cabernet. Maybe Chilean Carmenere. Slightly mould. Assume cork issue not mouldy fruit. No micro spoilage. Off dry to dry. Very sour. Low to moderate bitterness. Clean palate. Loads of Cassis. Long and fine. Even texture. Very interesting styles. Heaps of CO2. Citrus like acidity and slightly flavored that way. Very interesting.

smells and tastes like grape juice...just a bit more sour from the wild fermentation...quite good, but not as good as their raspberry...sourness sticks to palate for a while (not necessary bad)
