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.

Not as sweet as expected, quite tart. Nice currant flavor, easy drinking, like the tartness of this one.

Simultaneously sweet and tart. Very fruity, almost tastes like carbonated juice. But, with that lambic sourness in the background. Wheaty and crisp, balancing the sweetness of the currants. Mouth puckeringly good. Nice carbonation adds depth without overpowering. In my mind, exactly what a fruit lambic should be. Miles ahead of the peche

Tap: Sweet fruity smell. Decent mouth feel. Tasted like carbonated fruit juice. I guess I just donít have enough experiance with lambics to appreciate them.

This brew wasnít that bad, I was expecting a more sweet taste from this, but didnít get it. Light carbonation, but smooth going down, not a bad one after all.

bottle poured a cloudy reddish purple with large lasting creamy light burgandy head. Aromas of black currants, a bit of wheat and a hint of honey. Palate was light bodied and tart. Flavors of currants, honey and some wheat with a lingering sweetart finish. My favorite Lindemans so far, still a bit sweet though.

While this is easily the tartest of the Lindemanís lambics, itís still fairly sweet. Itís what makes it one of my personal favourites. And the nearly- purple red colour is always good for making people what youíre drinking, exactly.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Creamy pink head with a reddish body. Really odd aroma, fruity with some oak and anise, really not that good in my opinion. Nice taste however, heavy currants dominate, with some light grassy hops to compliment it. Tart ending.

Clear dark ruby color with a medium creamy pink head. Aroma of black currant, with some sour kick and a little funk. Sweet black currant with light sour in the end.
