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.

yespr (31464) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/purple with a lacing off-white head. Very sweet black currants, a bit like cheap sugarish candy. Fills the room immediately when poured. Sweet sugarish berry flavour which goes into a very sharp acidity/citric finish. Black currants flavour keeps lingering far into the finish. Surprisingly clean and nice, but it only works in small quantities.

Ungstrup (29465) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2005
Labeled at only 3.5% ABV. A red beer with a huge pink head. The aroma is powerfully black currant - and nothing else - just like black currant juice - nice, but not really what I want in my beer. The flavor is very sweet with a good acidity and lots of black currant, leading to a dry woody note. I like the combination of the sweet black currant juice and the acidity.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark red, close to black actually, with a reddish, dense and rather creamy head. Rather acidic both from the lambic and the black currant although lots of sugar is added. But very fresh indeed. 161199

joergen (21062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005. Deep redddish colour with a red head. Aroma is totally dominated by black currants. Acidic flavour of black currants (in Denmark we would say that it tastes like Ribena Solbær). Not bad, but I must admit, that I’m not very fond of black currants.

oh6gdx (20602) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 29, 2005
Bottled. Dark red colour, reddish foamy head. Lacing. Strong flavour of blueberries. Blueberries in flavour and a long bitterish finish. Mouthdrying. Very refreshing.

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2008
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Deep purple, pink head. Tart evident black curant aroma. Sweet black currant flavour with a fair amount of drying vinegart acidity. Tart enough to be refreshing, but with a very straight forward and overpowering black currant flavour, taking away the complexity of the lambic base.

anders37 (16895) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish color with a small pinkish white head. Fruity and slightly tart black currant aroma. Sweetish black currant flavor with some tart hints. Sweetish fruity black currant finiah.

3.5%. Cloudy purple beer with a magenta head! Palate is semi dry and semi crisp. Rich blackcurrant totally dominates. Tart enough to cause a bit of eyelid flutter but never overpowering. Finishes tart crisp and dry. An intensely fruity experience!

Red color. Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and syrupy. A soft drink, not a beer…
