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.

The bottle poured a hazy pinkish red beverage with a thin pink creamy head. The head, what there was of it, lasted well and there was some lacing on the glass. The aroma was of sweet, ripe currants. A very subdued note of wheat was just barely discernable. The body was medium-full with lively carbonation and a tart, dry texture. The flavor started off quite sweet and tart. The finish was average and ended up dry and tart as well.

"Wow what a fruit lambic i love this one. Pour was a dark purple and the head was massive and purple was well. Flavor was fruity and tart-sweet. Mouthfeel was done very well in this one, i think they sweeten their lambics "

Bottle. Dark ruby red, clear with a magenta head. Big berry nose and flavor. Slightly tart and refreshing. Good stuff.

Pours a dark red with pinkish-red head. Aroma is all currant and the flavor matches. Very similar to what you’d expect from blending a bunch of currants and then drinking the results. Tasty!

Very dark reddish purple with a big pink head, that lasted quite good. The powerful currants in the aroma doesn’t quite hide the earthy/bitter/etc. signs og a lambic, which is quite nice. Lots of berries in the flavour with a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness - quite bitter finish.

Pours a very dark purple almost black, pink head. This shit is like candy, it’s so sweet and so fruity, very tart, awesome dark berry flavor. Good beer but my stomach can only handle 1 every once in a while.

ruby red color with a fair sized light red head. The aroma iof currants, what a shocker. A nice berry flavor but it turns to a sour pucker afterwards.

Very nice, although the alcohol percentage was different. The colour was interesting, very sweet but not tiring. I liked it very much.

From notes, 01-12-06 Pours a vary dark hazy purple with a thick two finger pink head that slowly recedes to a rocky cap, that leaves behind tons of lacing. It’s kind of strange to see a purple head on my beer. Smell; very sweet with a very strong black currant smell. There’s also a bit of a sour smeel in the background. Taste; very sweet and fruity to start, followed by a slightly puckering sourness. It was a little hard to pick out at first because of how sweet this beer is, but there’s a bit of a peppery spiciness in the finish, that makes this slightly more enjoyable. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. This is so sweet that I had a really hard time finishing it.

Dark purple, slightly red, some reddish head. Nose is berries, tannin, yeast, and more berries. Very syrupy, rather simple, but not bad to drink. Granted I would never buy this stuff, but I wont turn it down either. Begins rather sour, lots of cassis peel, finishes a bit sweet. Not much else to say really, but not a lambic lovers lambic, more like a vaginas kind of lambic.
