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.

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.

Iím not a big fan off blackcurrant som my rating maybe is a bit unfair. But thereís just too much blackcurrant there.

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

probably my least favorite of the bunch. I do like black currant, but i think they went a little heavy on it. Gets worse as it warms but while it is cold it is tolerable. Too dark to really see the massive amounts of bubbles rising.

Ahh, a nice balance of sweet and tart. The blackberries have real flavor and the low alcohol content makes this eminently drinkable even with the large bottle I had. A winner.

clear dark reddish colour, few head, deep fresh blackcurrants aroma with notes of vinegar, tart and sweet with some acidity, dry fruity finish - a nice aperitiv

I love back currants,sourness is refreshing,one of my favorite lambics.

fraternie (820) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2002
Extraordinarily complex, sour ale. Blackberry malt flavor. I donít get in to lambics as much as some people because of the sourness, and this one isnít as good as the Framboise anyway. Nevertheless, I can appreciate its complexity.

Almost skunky odor upon opening. More sanguine than its kriek cousin, and in some ways, more palatable than the kriek lambic of the same producer. The tartness is tempered with its sweetness, much like a good grapefruit as it sits in the mouth then finishes with something I can only describe as mintlike. Laces up the glass well, and was enjoyable as a little desert treat for myself.

Ah, itís not fair to compare to framboise, but Iím just not a fair person. Itís not as good as framboise. This one is beautiful to look at, a deep red-purprle with a bright pink thick head. Fruit is very noticeable in the nose, sweet and tart. Not a huge fan of the flavor of currants, which is obviously a problem here. Tasty, though the fruity bitterness draws away. Nice sour finish. Probably my least favorite of Lindemannís offerings, but still quite fine.
