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.

Blackberry through and through. Someone call Shasta -- I’ve got a new formula for their blackberry soda.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 12 oz. bottle: An excellent Lambic. It has a somewhat sweet, fruity aroma to it. It also has a nice sour aftertaste to compliment the slight sweetness of the beer. The black currant taste is very evident, but not overdone. Nice purplish head, on top of a beer that has an almost grape juice color. Very heavy. The Black Currants are a nicer flavor than the Krieks or Boons. Definitely a one at a sitting brew.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2002
Head is initially average sized, fizzy, pink, mostly lasting. Body is dark reddish-purple, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (light bread), with notes of cassis, blueberries, hint of medicine. Flavor is heavily sweet, heavily acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, creamy (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation, heavily astringent. Pretty sweet, but the high acidity makes the flavor balance better than many/most of the other Lindeman’s fruit lambics. Aroma is less like soda/candy as well, but still a bit medicinal. Quite astringent, though (my gums and cheeks went numb after only a few sips).

Too sour for me. It has a different reddish-purple color, but in all, I just didn’t like it. The commercial description says, ’...with a crisp clean taste.’ This beer has Anything but a clean taste. it left a sour film on my tongue. If someone could tell me what I should be eating w/ this stuff, I might try it again.

Light, sweet. First experience with a lambic. Good but nothing awe inspiring.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2002
Deep purple red, purple pink head that lasted about a minute. Overwhelming smell of blackcurrant, which almost smothers the faint sour note in the mouth and renders the finish way too sweet.

reddish brown color, fruity aroma, refreshing.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2002
Deep Purple color, the head is also redish-purple, the lace is decent. Nose is yeasty, black currants are noticeable, different to this nose. Front is sweet, the grape taste is quite evident, top thin, the finish is highly acidic, dry and quite an interesting beer, once again worth the try. Ranks #524 on my master list of beers.

I’m not a big fan off blackcurrant som my rating maybe is a bit unfair. But there’s just too much blackcurrant there.

Not actually bad, but definitely not to my taste. I like blackcurrant tea, but blackcurrant lambic doesn’t work for me. The currant flavor is just too intense.
