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.

Dark ruby and purple appearence. Off white head that fizzles away into nothing. Sharp, acrid aromas of currant. Currant flavors mostly. Musky body with a sharp finish. Fairly one dimensional.

Poured very dark, the color of grape juice concentrate. Aroma is very spearmint-like. I found this Lambic quite enjoyable. Flavor is very sweet with lots of grape and berry tastes intermixed. Quite good.

I did not really care for this one, I found the flavors too be a little over the top and cloying. Everything about it is really nice, but just not to my taste. Pours very pretty in pink so to speak, with a big puffy head that fades away quickly. Lots of dark fruits, berries and currants.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Blown away! This was a fantastic drink. Beautiful red body with frothy "pink" head. Looked more like a sparkling wine. The aroma was tantalizing. Very berry. The taste was awesome. Good feel in the mouth and more berries in the flavor. This is delicious. Will be stocking up.

wow this stuff rocks. Dark ruby with a thick fluffy strawberry sherbert colored head with great lacing on the glass. Black currents with some blackberry in the nose, same in the taste maybe a little more frutiy (strawberry?)

radiomgb (2422) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2003
Dark purple in colour with a pink head. Aroma of blackcurrents, blueberries, blackberries and some plum. Flavour had some tartness, not overly sour, blackcurrents, grapes and some sweetness. Finish is a surgary sweetness.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2003
A lot of berries which was quite pleasent but I did find it a little bit unbalanced. I found this a little too sweet for me.

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.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2003
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.
