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/red appearance. Nice, well-retained head with spotty rings of lacing. Tart, fruity, acidic aroma. Tastes of vinegar and sweet, tart berries.

Pours a unique dark red-pink, bubbly head, among a glowy red color. Very fruity aromas, ripe currant as the nose defining component, with sweet, almost marmelade like qualities. A gentle sour aspect adds to the complexity of the smell, while I can’t detect any acidic, funky notes. Taste includes a whole lot of currant berries, along with a slightly fermented, ripe fruit sweetness, which meets the palate in an almost smooth, very soft fashion. Sourness gives the fruit flavor a refreshing punch, while it remains supportive throughout. Interacts well with the sweetnes of the brew, adding a convincing, fruit focused balance. Finishes with fruits still being on top of the game, while sourness almost faded, leaving some space for bready malt clues.

Bottle. Pours a purplish brown color with a moderate pinkish tan head on there. Nose is pleasantly fruity, with blackberries and currants coming off there. Taste is quite sweet and definitely fruity, yet manages not to be overwhelmingly heavy.

gripweed57 (756) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Deep purple color, like grape juice. Rocky pink head. Exquisitely ornate Belgian lacing. Funky, fruity grape nose. Big grape and funk flavor upfront. Tart fruitiness follows. Finish is slightly dry and oily. Tough interesting, it’s not something I would drink much of.

"poured nearly the color of grape juice, with a nice pink/light purple head. smelled sweet and funky. Tasted very sweet (as sweet as the Framboise) but with considerably more lambic funk (in the nose and flavor). you could easily taste the fruity currant flavor as well. while i enjoyed it, it was the least drinkable of the three i’ve tried to date (raspberry, apple, black currant). the tart/sour & sweet mix that worked well at first got a little old after 8-12 oz. Not badmouthing, though. it’s an interesting beer worth trying. Don’t know if I’ll drop another $6+ for 12 oz. any time soon, though."

eduardovl (926) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
250ml bottle served in a Lindermans flute glass. A: Pours a dark purple plum color forming a small light purple head. Medium retention and some lacings left S: Smells like a Lambic, I mean, sweet fruitiness, and, at the same time, tart and bit vinegar. Lambic yeasts T: Follows the nose. Sweet fruity upfront followed by an acid and tart Lambic taste. Metallic. Lambic yeasts are a must M: Light, fizzy carbonated body. Fruity and acid O: Easy drinking Lambic. More acid than the average but still an interesting experience [ BA Review @ 6/23/2012 ]

gunnar (5605) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
Shared bottle at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Pours clear dark reddish with a small pink head. Strong and intense aroma of blackcurrant. Taste is very sweet fruty and or but also light acidic, worked nice as a palate cleaner, more of a soft drink than a beer imo.

JefVerstraete (1532) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from B&S Drinks, Leuven. Dark red colour, pink foam. Aroma of blackcurrant, candy and lemon. Sour beer with sweet sugary hints. More lemonade than beer but not very bad.
