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.

Pink head on a ruby red body. It is meant as a sweet beer, and it tastes so. Very nice as apéritif or together with dessert. Very tasty and nice to drink. A dream on a hot day.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours ruby red with a nice layer of persistent pink head. Aromas of pomegranate, pepper, and a strong musky/catty element. Not thick or heavy on the palate, but so lively that it give the impression of a full mounthfeel. Interesting and delicious play between the sour and sweet, leaning toward the sour with sour cranberry and grape skin flavors. Some earthy musky notes here too, that make me think a bit of a Beaujolais-Village. I know, I know, not the most traditional example of the style, very tasty anyway.

Reddish colour with a small pink head. Fruity sweet aroma with a light sour touch. Artificial winegum fruity sweetness.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Pours like a carbonated red wine. Sharp and funky aroma reminiscent of moldy rotting fruit. Whoa, the black current flavor is almost red meat like. Not immediatly pleasing. Nice juicy and organic mouth feel though.

joergen (25926) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005. Deep redddish colour with a red head. Aroma is totally dominated by black currants. Acidic flavour of black currants (in Denmark we would say that it tastes like Ribena Solbær). Not bad, but I must admit, that I’m not very fond of black currants.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottle. A very nice sweet black currant aroma up front - hints of yeast. A dark violet color with small pink head. Very pleasant sweet-tart black currant flavor - hints of the lambic mustiness. Moderate carbonation. A very good fruit lambic - quite unique. A great currant flavor.

fordest (2455) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 13, 2005
750 ml bottle. Cork came out with a great pop. Dark purple color with a lighter purple, fizzy head. Aromas of sour grapes and cherries. Tart flavors of grape as well. The finish was sweet, but with a cranberry type drying in the mouth. Left the lips sticky. Very sweet, and not my everyday beer, but very good when sweet is what you want.

Bottle - corked and capped. Pours a purpleish ruby with a small foamy purple head. Nose is laden with black currants, I suppose but also has some minty notes to it. Very odd and sort of artificial smelling. Taste is redeeming, though. It’s sweet and sugary and has more black currant but is surprisingly decent. Body is a bit sticky and has moderate carbonation. Finishes with more black currants, light mint, and sugary notes. Granted I like this least of the Lindemans line (of those I have had), but it’s not horrible.

Purchased for my wife, and she seemed to enjoy it. Purple with a little fizzy head. Musty, sour, berry aroma. Sour, black currant fruit flavor. It seems to be of adequate quality for a lambic. These lambics just dont hold any attraction for me. I wouldnt even call them a beer. Overpriced, and a waste of money.

Bottle Purple body. Pink, fizzy head, fully diminishing, good lace. Fruits (off course) int the aroma. Sweet flavour.
