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.

Deep cranberry color wiht a creamy pink head. Tarty aroma...blackberries in the aroma as well. Very nice. Smooth crisp taste. Kind of like berry punch. Tarty, berry like. I’m a huge fan of Lambic’s and I really have an appreciation for what Lindemans does. Very good.

Pours deep cranberry color with lasting pink head. Aroma of tart blackberry. Flavor is black currants, dark fruit and tartness. Very dry and fizzy. I don’t think this is my cup of tea. Perhaps I will try some of their other lambics.

I really like the Lindemans and Liefmans lambics. Whether you like fruit or not, you have to respect what they accomplish with these. Very nice.

Beautiful cranberry colored, slightly hazy, with a grand pink head. Nice head retention and lacing. Big currant aroma, with sour cheeses and musty canvas intermixed. A fantastic mix of sweet and sour flavors -- red grapes, black currants, and blackberries release a tartness that is quite striking. Soft, creamy, and slightly fizzy on the palate. Tart finish has defenite oak flavors. Delicious.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 This is the worst drink I have ever had in my life. I swear somebody mixed boxed wine and busch light together and stuck it in a bottle. Man up and drink some real beer.

Pete's Wines, Lake Union - Seattle: Currant flavor is a little tart. Tastes great if you like tart beverages (I do!). Nice color -- looks like a dark champagne. :-)

A decent lambic, has a very tart taste to it. Sweet when you first sip it up then it leaves with a tart aftertaste. Way too sour for my tastes though.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - APR 11, 2004
Sour, grapy aroma. Pink head, ruby coloration. Very tart, sweet, just like the other lambics, just like carbinated fruit juice. Pretty good, I like the lindemans peche better, but this is good none the less.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Bottle pours a deep ruby red color with an awsome looking pink head and lot of lace. The aroma is of currant, with a real sour bite late in the aroma, almost like yogurt in the nose, and slightly sour. The flavor is real fruity, yogurt, more tart as it progresses into the finish, and somewhat sour in the finish - sort of like a liquid SweetTart candy. The palate is crisp, refreshing, and nicely carbonated. Overall, this is not very Lambic like, but I actually like it fairly well.
