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.

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 (10830) - 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 (10118) - 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 don’t 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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2004
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.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2004
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...

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2004
WOW! I like this. sweet and tart but not over powering like the raspberry. Poured blue red- maybe purple. Good bluish head. Wonderful carbonation.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2004
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.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2004
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.
