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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 (Draught) Pours a purplish body with a medium-sized fusha head. Had a sweet black currant flavor with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

Bottle: I love lambic for many reasons as i stated in other ratings. This is another good fruit beer, although I prefer the cherry and raspberry, I have the utmost respect (as a homebrewer) for the process.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Sweet aroma - strong, but soft at the same time. Great cloudy red body with fluffy pink head. Taste is berries - sweet/sour/tart up front, but thinning out at the back - I thought it would have a dry-er finish. At the end is a nice hint of minty freshness (and no, I didn't just brush my teeth). Suitable for all ages.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Red color. Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and syrupy. A soft drink, not a beer…

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2003
Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and sour blackcurrant flavor. The cassis juice doesn't leave room for other flavors. Occasionally a decent lambic flavor shines through. Just a bit milky. A nice teenagers drink, also suitable for adults with a sweet tooth.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 12, 2003
500 ml bottle imported. Nice little pop when I unleashed the cork. Slight musty smell and a bit of fruit/berry in the initial whiff. Poured, the head is fine and a light pink, but goes away fairly quickly. The color is a deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of fruit, tin, vinegar and mold--but in a reassuring, good way--like a beer that's been laid down forever that absorbs some fine hint of dust from it's bottle. The taste is pucker and deep round berries--smoother and less tart than a framboise, with a less assertive fruit flavor. Nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Deep cherry/mohagany color with a pink/beige dense head. Strong aromas of fruit: Blackberries, blueberries, cranberries and currants. Additional strong nose of goldenrod in the fall, I could nearly sneeze. Sweet tart berry flavors. Really is quite crisp and clean in the finish. This shall be the brew with dinner this thanksgiving.

Rating #750:
Dark violet colour with a light purple head. Pure black currant aroma, very potent with that almost minty (wintergreen) aroma and a pungent tartness and sweetness. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong carbonation; Potent black currant flavour with a slight maltiness. Aftertaste tart and subtley sweet from the fruit. Overall, this is exactly like how I expected it to be. Maybe I'm a sucker for these fruity lambics, but I really enjoy them! Black currants truly make this one a treat. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 02-November-2003.

Very nice, tartness is firm but not overwhelming. Currants come through giving this a unique fruit character. My favorite, I think, of the lindeman's lambics
