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.

Blackish purple-red w/ creamy dark pink foam. Sweet, blackcurrant aroma w/ an underlying grape-like tartness. Light, sugary, juicy body. Very sweet blackcurrant flavour gives way to a light tannic tartness. Finish is dry & mildly acidic finish.

Smells like freshly cut vines, which is a tad bit strange... Nonetheless, this is quite a nice olí brew. Sour and sweet, with emphasis on the sour. I have never tasted a currant, so I couldnít begin to tell you how closely this brew resembles one. Good stuff.

3,5% ABV.
Pours unclear deep red colored with a solid pink head. Aroma of Ribena, black currants with mint tones. Flavor is very heavy also of black currants again with that funny tone of mint. Good sourness in the end. A nice and refreshing beer, but more like a fruit beer than a lambic! Quite impressive for a 3,5% beer!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Once more, Iím missing the allure of a fruit lambic. This pours a deep burgundy color with a tall, creamy pink head. The aroma is very fruity, of course, and somewhat tart. Itís got a fizzy mouthfeel and tastes like sweet/sour currants. Finishes on a tart, fruity note.

tobias (204) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2005
375ml bottle: pours a nice grape red burgandy color, with a lavender head. the a aroma a tart, musty and fruity with hints of horseyness and oak. the flavors is a quite balabced tart and sweet currant grape like. sour and acidic, yet very sweet for a lambic. there is a slight woody, farm character on the end.

My first Lambic!! Bottle poured a dark burgandy with a small redish head. Aroma if fruity with a hint of mint and tart. Flavor is great! fruity sweet with a tart tangy finish. Very very good!! I guess I’ll be buying more Lambics!!

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Pours red with a pink head. Very fruity aroma with a faint malt background. First taste is very tart--the rest mellow out very nicely. Good, but the Framboise is better.

BeerandBlues2 (10775) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Pours grape juice red to hazy amber with a pink head, fizzy and some thin lacing. Aroma is strong of oak and then mint with hints of grass and malt. Flavor is fruity and tart with a mint finish. Palate is fizzy and the tartness makes your mouth water.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Lightly hazy, reddish orange ale with a mid-sized, pink, fizzy head. Good retention and weeping lace. The nose is fruity, earthy and herbal. The flavor is sweet and adequately tart. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Long, tangy finish. For all the reasons I donít like black currants, I like them in this lambic. They are bitter-sweet. Good in beer. Bad on their own or in syrups, jams, etc.

dark black red with pink head. tart wood aroma that is a bit corky. dry sweetness that is level throughout. taste of currants throughout. a peppermint taste in the finish. this would be much better for breakfast than it is at this time of night.
