I had this Lambic once at HookahVille. It was pretty tasty and refreshing. This maroon colored brew was sweet and had more bite than the framboise.

Very fruity, herb nose, almost "minty". Lavender hue. Pinkish rocky head. Very sour, tons of fruit, blackberry, currant. Light footed, tons of carbonation, sourness, sticky and terribly sweet. Very drinkable, the possibilities for this beer are endless.

This beer was a medim red amber color with a small white head that left a little lace. It had a nice aroma of currents and little bit of malt. The flavor was of currents and slightly of malt. The finish was tangy with current elements. This one tends to be a touch sour as opposed to the framboise. I like currents and was hoping that it would hold up as well as the framboise, but the sour aspect hurt it some.

Wonderful if you crave a little something sweet (but not too sweet) after dinner. Like a ripe piece of fruit, sweet and fresh at first, but with a nice clean, not-to-sweet finish.

Another introduction to lambics for my girlfriend. Already pushed the other Lindemans on her and thought she was ready for the Cassis. Poured dark purple with good head. The black currants stand out and add to the "medicine" flavor so many raters mention. Girlfriend enjoyed it but not my style. Give me a big belgian with a high ABV and none of this sissie stuff!

Looks like merlot with a medium head floating on top. Cough medicine smell made me hestitant. Very berry on the start turning really tart. Dry sour finish.

2001: At first I thought I was chewing on Band-Aids. Medicinal taste with cherries added. Dry and sour.

Medicinal, dry and the nose of a full basket of cassis blackberries. A bit sour to start and continues on through.

This beer is more than a little medicinal. It is, to tell the truth, just like carbonated Dimetap. The only aspects of this beer that I can be even remotely positive about was the palate and appearance, which I found to be typical of berry-flavored lambics. There must be something about blueberries and beer that simply doesn’t mix, because this is the second (of 2) blueberry beers that I have been unable to finish.
