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 plum colored, with a large purplish head. Lovely blackcurrant aroma. taste is of sweet, ripe, blackcurrants- like you just picked one off of a bush and popped it into your mouth. A fine lambic, though one at a time is more than emough.

Incredibly dark red colour,full of bubbles that cling to the side of the glass.Wonderful aroma of fresh blackcurrents and a huge mouthfull of the fruit when you drink it,a slight sour edge to it that I like.Nice fresh palate,I couldnt drink more than one,but I do like it.

Dark purple color with a foamy head. Berries dominate the aroma, but more of an earthy overtone than a fruity one. Good blackberry taste backed up by quite a bit of malted and raw barley. I thought it was pretty tasty, but probably a hit or miss with most people.

Strong blackberry aroma. Very dark red color, pink head, very nice lace. Blackberry syrup and sweet start. After swalling some vinegar which was the only positive authentic about it, medium body. After this one I decided to never buy a Cassis again. I hate the blackberry flavor.

Bottle Pours a cloudy pink/purple with a very nice light pink head. Iím not sure how black currants are supposed to taste but the aroma is wonderful. full and strong. A cross between cherries and grapes. Flavor is a terrific mix of sweet and tart. Stong carbonation, and a dry finish. Very refreshing. Delicious.

Beautiful red color. Small head despite high carbonation. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Initial taste of cherries. Very classy and refreshing overall.

This is the first one Iíve rated, but I love Lindemanís fruit beers. Great purple colour with a thin white head. The aroma is solid black currants, but fresh. The flavour is all fruit and sweet, but with a refreshing tartness. The fairly high carbonation also helps to offset the sweetness.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - AUG 13, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Colour of blueberry juice with an intriguing purple head. Some of the most complex lacing I have seen. Not nearly as turbulent as other Lindemanís brands. Tart! Wow! Really tart! Quite refreshing, but I feel it could use a bit more sweet or sour to balance the tartness. Very dry finish.

While hardly my favorite from this brand, it is a fine beer. I donít know if I ever had a black current on its own but this tasted a little like prunes. As I only like prunes ok it was the last beer I tried by these guys that I could get a hold of. While I am not knocked out it was a very good beer much better then your average brew. When ranked against most beer it is better but against their other product it is not quite as good. Still if you like fruit beer this is another good one.

This bottled capped and corked brew poured a medium sized head of slightly purple colored mostly diminishing bubbles of fine to medium size. The body was transparent carbonated and brown in color. It had a mild sour grape aroma and a smooth slightly tingly sour initial mouth feel that mellowed in the finish. It had sour grape.
