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.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pours a deep red with a dark pink fluffy head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is sour with some nice fruitiness to it. Quite nice. Flavor is pleasant; the currants are subtle and far from overpowering. Itís sour as is the style, but itís balanced with a nice sweetness presumably from the currants. Palate is crisp and full. Overall, this is nice. Itís not nearly as fruity as a lot of Lambics and would be a good beer to use to show how different beers can be as there is nothing objectionable here at all.

oh6gdx (22982) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 29, 2005
Bottled. Dark red colour, reddish foamy head. Lacing. Strong flavour of blueberries. Blueberries in flavour and a long bitterish finish. Mouthdrying. Very refreshing.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
The Lure:
Black currant candies floating in red wine.

The Festivities:
Prickly black currant skin covers the flavor spectrum with its heightened sweetness. Straightforward and perhaps pleasant on a hot summer afternoon.

Transcendence:
I have a hankering for popsicles once in a while.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
Strong candy-like black currant aroma has some occasional minty notes. Opaque reddish-purple body with decent cover of pink-white head that laces nicely. Very sweet candy-like fruitiness that is enjoyable but displays very little beer or lambic character. Very slight tartness in the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bottle (City Market Burlington, Nov. 2004) sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier, Rastacouere and Simon.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Pours a dark red color with a thin pink head. Sweet but somewhat unpleasant aroma of black currants. Unpleasant flavor of black currants, itís much to sweet.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2005
Clear pinky blood color. Limited head. Strong grapey cassis aroma. Extreme level of sweetness, nothing else, no alcohol trace whatsoever. So sweet it burns, overwhelming. The slightest hint at branches keep it from being a disaster, very cloying nature, teeth sticking. Smooth bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel. I donít know.. I donít enjoy it, but for a fruit syrupy beer, it is well made indeedÖ

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2005
Available in the bottle served with the appropriate glassware at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pittsburgh, PA. Very nice appearance. An interesting musty aroma. Reminds me of the inside smells of the Noahís Ark in Kennywood Park. Very easy to drink. I would consider this equal in stature to the raspberry. Equal, but different, a very good beer.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2005
Deep purple body with a pink head, lots of lacing down the glass. Aroma is of currants with some light woody notes. Mildly sweet, currants and a light vinegar notes. Some light tartness balancing out the fruity sweetness. Overall a bit too sweet, but that was expected from this one.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pours a dark purple with a tall pink head. Very rich currant aroma, sweet up front with a slight sourness in the finish. Very thick texture coating the palate very well. This makes a very nice after-dinner brew that would pair very nicely with anything sweet and rich.
