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.

Taste from a bottle at Monks Cafe in Philly. I'm not a lambic fan but this wasn't bad. Taste and smelled sour. Had a purplish color to it.

A nice appearance and good aroma start this one. The flavor is a bit strange,and quite tart, but also nice. My first cassis lambic, so I'm not certain what to compare it to. As such, this rating will have to stand alone for now.

Ruby red with a small head. Nice black currant aroma and taste. Sweet, but not sickly sweet. I think it is nice but you cannot drink a lot. Sharing one with a friend is ok.

This is a strange beer...it has an unusual taste that requires closer inspection. Obviously not as good as the Framboise (Raspberry) lambic, but also not too much of a let down. The aroma smells very strange...I'm not really a fan of the smell. The taste is OK, but not worth the price. If you're going to pay this price, get the Raspberry.

Dark purple color with a thick pink head. The aroma was full, complex...grassy barnyard tones, sour, sweet, animal fur. The flavor was more one-dimensional...sweet/tart berries. Crisp feel...lively.

Draft: Deep purple ruby colour. Good flavours of black cherries and black current. Nice on the palatte, with just the right amount of tartness. Not quite on the same level as the framboise - but still nice.

A solid ruby purple color with a great looking red frothy head, damn impressive. Smells like the fruit market, full of mostly dark cherry's blackberry's rasberry's and stuff of that sort and dont leave out the rhubarb. Sweet, this has a definite rhubarbishness to it, not overly sour, remains sugary sweet with the perfect amount of tart. Kind of has a fizzy quality to it where the power of the flavor hits you all at first and then its an aftermath of lesser tasting foam.

Has a deep red/purple color with some carbonation and a fruit/current smell. Taste is also of the fruit all the way. Overall it was pretty good.

I was not a big fan or this beer at all. I love the Framboise and like the Kriek, but this beer is not for me.
