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.

purple violet squish hues with a bubbly white head of effervesence. nose cherries and black currants fruity. very tart on the palate. takes a while for the mouth to get used to , like sour tart. would be great with a chees assortment. a nice lambic but maybe slighty too tart for me.

Pailhead (5062) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle: The aroma is awful. Smells like a musty and moldy tent thatís been packed away too long. Light cherry is mostly dominated by the musty smell. Pours a dark red with a pink head. Nice tart cherry flavor. Sour finish and aftertaste. A little mustiness is there, but not like the aroma. Aroma absolutely destroys this score.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Dark crimson with a nice pink head and lacing. Nose of barn, socks, and berries. Smooth silky texture. Nice tart berry flavors with some horse blanket background. Some sour but more sweet than sour. This is the most tart of the Lindeman fruit line (that we can get here in the USA) and it my favorate of that line up. Very nice balance but still too sweet for a lambic.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours reddish, purpley, pinky. Fizzy pink head. Cobweb, barnyard aroma and flavor. Taste is similar to the framboise, just a different berry. Very sweet, makes me pucker. Good stuff for something different.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Smell slight funk with musty berry skin overtones. Taste mild tartness, strong fruit flavor, not TOO too sweet, but still damn sugary. Not bad. Not great. When I need a sweet beer fix Iíll reach for some other Lindemans.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
Blackish purple-red w/ creamy dark pink foam. Sweet, blackcurrant aroma w/ an underlying grape-like tartness. Light, sugary, juicy body. Very sweet blackcurrant flavour gives way to a light tannic tartness. Finish is dry & mildly acidic finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Smells like freshly cut vines, which is a tad bit strange... Nonetheless, this is quite a nice olí brew. Sour and sweet, with emphasis on the sour. I have never tasted a currant, so I couldnít begin to tell you how closely this brew resembles one. Good stuff.

Jeppe (2631) - ōlbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2005
3,5% ABV.
Pours unclear deep red colored with a solid pink head. Aroma of Ribena, black currants with mint tones. Flavor is very heavy also of black currants again with that funny tone of mint. Good sourness in the end. A nice and refreshing beer, but more like a fruit beer than a lambic! Quite impressive for a 3,5% beer!

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Once more, Iím missing the allure of a fruit lambic. This pours a deep burgundy color with a tall, creamy pink head. The aroma is very fruity, of course, and somewhat tart. Itís got a fizzy mouthfeel and tastes like sweet/sour currants. Finishes on a tart, fruity note.

tobias (203) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2005
375ml bottle: pours a nice grape red burgandy color, with a lavender head. the a aroma a tart, musty and fruity with hints of horseyness and oak. the flavors is a quite balabced tart and sweet currant grape like. sour and acidic, yet very sweet for a lambic. there is a slight woody, farm character on the end.
