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.

Bottle. Deep burgandy body with a deep pink head. The nose is not good. It reminds me of the smell I would smell when I used to weed our garden by hand-like very spicy hay. The taste on the front end is tart and a little sweet. The finish has the aforementioned weedy taste followed by a nice lambic sourness. All in all, this is multi-layered and complex. One one layer it is kinda nasty, on the other layer it is a good sourness. A very odd beer.

Purple color, with a pink head. Aromas of currents and mint. Flavor is similar to the aroma. It starts out sweet, but get a little sour as it goes. Interesting, but not really my thing.

Poured deep purple with purplish blue head...very tart, sour grape and horse blanket aroma...taste is quite fruity and this is by far the most sour of their line...definately sour currants...sweet and sour finish...nice lambic...

WOW! I like this. sweet and tart but not over powering like the raspberry. Poured blue red- maybe purple. Good bluish head. Wonderful carbonation.

Red coloured. Slightly natural cassis aroma. Sweet cassis flavour with some tartness in the finish. Rather light bodied. Very drinkable even though it is not traditional.

I really don’t think I know what a currant is, but I guess that’s what this drink tastes like...very fruity. The body is purple and the head is very full and pink. The aroma is very flowery. The carbonation feels like a party on my tongue. I don’t like the taste as much as some of the other Lindemans lambics (peach and raspberry are better), so the flavor didn’t get a very high rating from me.

Trappistenhuis, Ghent - a lighter choice designed to buy me some time off the stronger Belgian stuff! Superb aroma and looks amazing - purple with the pinkest head ever! Very rich blackcurrant flavour (like neat Ribena), which coats the throat like a Strepsil. Very sweet, but I enjoyed it. Sugar rush!

I would like to echo Asland’s reverence towards the venerable Mr. Tomness on the contribution to his new motorbike. On occasion I have had the chance to enjoy the motorbike, and let me tell you, it was excitement personified. Riding the motorbike is the greatest experience on earth.

Bottle picked up in Belgium. Oh look, more crap from Lindemans. This is truly awful. I would say it’s like undiluted Ribena, but the blackcurrants in this taste faker. Amazingly overrated crap.

Deep plum colored, with a large purplish head. Lovely blackcurrant aroma. taste is of sweet, ripe, blackcurrants- like you just picked one off of a bush and popped it into your mouth. A fine lambic, though one at a time is more than emough.
