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.

Bottled. Dark read with a rich white head. The aroma consists of blackcurrant and is sweet. The flavour has a sweet taste of blackcurrant and has an aftertaste with a "sting".

A Mes rate: 37.5cl bottle from somewhere in Bruges. Smells good, tastes ok, looks awesome. Itís just too sweet really. All blackcurrant syrup. Like Ribena beer.

Reddish purple, with a pinkish lavender head that lingers. Aroma is tart and very fruity. The taste is exactly the same. Very crisp and feels fresh. I really like lambics like this. It just sits right in my mouth and my tummy. This is probably my favorite from Lindemans.

Not a complex aroma. Mainly just the aroma of what I assume to be currant...Iíve never smelled them before. I must say that I would imagine the actual fruit to smell better as this has a somewhat rotten(?) unpleasantness to it. The flavor mirrors the aroma except that it is more tolerable. Still not good, though. I get a sense of earthiness/woodsiness in there toward the end. Extremely sweet.

This is cold, i freezered it for 45 mins and its probably just about right going by what the kriek was hot, which makes me think the lreik needs re-rating. Aroma is nutty, blackcurrent, a bit raw and not much character. Taste is alot different, sourness blends with the current sweetness, to make a very easy and very flavoursome mix of fruit lambic goodness. This is my first blackcurrent lambic and i wonder why theres not more?

Pours a hazed, melony-purple with a quick, orchid head that fades fast to halo. Currant dominates aroma within a rather cough-syrupy persona. A sourness strikes me simply, like lemons. Upon tasting, my wife made a humorous yet accurate observation: "Itís so sweet that itís sour." Thatís exactly the impression it conjures... starting with a syrupy, fruity sweetness but moving instantly to a puckery-astringent, fruity tartness. Itís a giddy flavor assault on your tastebuds, like being tickled to the point of pain by a maniacal clown.

Bottle. Nice pink head. Suprisingly dark red body. Strong black curant aroma. Well balanced bittersweet flavor.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Very fruity aroma....If I hadnít read that it was currants, I wouldnít be able to place it :) Dark purple hint to the brown body, with a light pink foamy head. The taste is very very bitter, bordering on sour. There is little to no hoppy flavo, the fruity taset starts as the finish starts. Pretty good.

Great nose, very fruity, can really pick up the fruit and dark berry smell. Taste is sweet, with a decent sour after bite. Good good fruit beer.

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2005
Bottled, 37.5 cl. Pinkish brown with light pink head. Sweet lambic with an acidic underbelly, perfumey fruit, obviously blackcurrant and quite cloying. Carbonated giving a frothy lemonade taste in the mouth, a reasonable fruit beer.
