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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
pours dark red with a small pinkish head, aromas of fruit, citrus, and sweetness the fruity smell was mostly black currant, the taste was a little overly sweet with some tartness, not a bad brew.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 (Bottle 37,5cl) Poured a very deep purple with a thin creamy bright pink head that leaves surprisingly nice lacing. The nose is very fruity with lots of blackcurrant, some musty red wine, apples and a bit of woodiness presumably from the oak aging. The mouthfeel is very syrupy with light carbonation. Much like the other Lindemans lambics, the fruity sweetness is very powerful and present in the flavor. I really like sweets and blackcurrants so it really appeals to me but I can see why others might not be too fond of it. Definitely best for desert, I imagine it would go nicely with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Extremely refreshing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark red, close to black actually, with a reddish, dense and rather creamy head. Rather acidic both from the lambic and the black currant although lots of sugar is added. But very fresh indeed. 161199

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Huge aroma of currants. Very sprtitzy to the nose. Pale purple in color. Big fluffy purple tinted head. Sweet in the initial taste, but a bit vinegary in the middle. Dry finish. My bottile is old I can tell as it has the old style label that shows the currants on the label with a purple background. So that may be why. But it still isn’t all that bad. Too sweet on the whole for my taste, but still interesting.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Bottle: Deep ruby, large pink foamy head, lovely lacing.   Strong, and very fresh, aroma of black currants.   Sweet, yet somewhat tart black currant flavor.   Very well balanced.   Great body, very flavorful, and quite smooth.   Fruity tart finish, with an underlying sweetness.   Somehow Bottleworks ended up with the European version as it has a different label and very little english.   Great stuff!!!   According to the Bottleworks employees this stuff is much better than the stuff imported here, seen in the picture on the left.   A delicious mistake somewhere along the distribution line.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Bottle at Andy’s. Purple, mauve head. Funky fruity black currant aroma. Sweet and sour black currant flavors. I happen to like the black currant flavors so think this is pretty nice, but not for everyone.

Dark ruby red color. Medium sized pinkish foamy white head. Some currant aroma notes, combine strangely with a lambic funkiness. Overpowering sweetness, with fairly mundane sourness. I found it to be too fruity.
