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.

I really donít think I know what a currant is, but I guess thatís 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 donít like the taste as much as some of the other Lindemans lambics (peach and raspberry are better), so the flavor didnít get a very high rating from me.

Trappistenhuis, Ghent - a lighter choice designed to buy me some time off the stronger Belgian stuff! Superb aroma and looks amazing - purple with the pinkest head ever! Very rich blackcurrant flavour (like neat Ribena), which coats the throat like a Strepsil. Very sweet, but I enjoyed it. Sugar rush!

I would like to echo Aslandís reverence towards the venerable Mr. Tomness on the contribution to his new motorbike. On occasion I have had the chance to enjoy the motorbike, and let me tell you, it was excitement personified. Riding the motorbike is the greatest experience on earth.

Bottle picked up in Belgium. Oh look, more crap from Lindemans. This is truly awful. I would say itís like undiluted Ribena, but the blackcurrants in this taste faker. Amazingly overrated crap.

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.
