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.

Not your usual nasty lambic, and not your usual nasty lambic with fruit thrown incongruously over top of it. INCREDIBLE combination of black currant and lambic flavors. Delectable.

This is my favorite lambic. Youíll get a heaping nosefull of black pepper, corriander, and of course cassis. Flavor is acetic and sweet. This is a tart drink and not what youíd expect. Iíd take this over the framboise, kriek, peche, or the apple lamibs from Lindemanís but they are all very good.

Smell is sweet and sour currant. Taste is the same and man is it delicious.

From a bottle at the Lindemans Brewery. Nice aroma of tart fruit not too strong, taste is sweet and smooth raisony with a slight sour in the middle finishing sweet, unique flavor of lambic, one of the best.

In a word? AWESOME. In just a few more words? Eh, not really necessary but why not: tremendous balance of tart and sweet; silky-smooth texture; rich, dark ruby appearance; satisfying aftertaste. A beer for winter and summer alike. Perhaps 0.05 points inferior to Kriek or Framboise for the generic fruit flavor (not so much blackcurrant) but this in itself lends it character!

This is the best of the Lindemans lambics, immaculate black current taste with a hint of the sour lambic at the end. I should really be eating a piece of cake with this.

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Delicious wild berry aroma and flavors like no other Iíve tasted. Swirling cloudy purplish pour from the gunk on the bottom. Similar to the cherry and raspberry but unique in the flavored beer & lambic arena. Unless you donít like ísweetí, there are no negative attitudes about this stuff. Smooth and addicting. Beatiful blend of fruit and tart beer. Lovely, simply lovely. Creamy carbonation like fizzy bubling candy. I thought my favorite beer was framboise but I think I have reason to think of currants. I could drink this cassis all day starting with breakfast and with the listed alky content, itís possible. Like other lambics, the only thing that keeps me drinking regular cheap beer instead of this is the not-so-cheap cost.

Pours an opaque purpose with moderate but long lasting violet head. Super sweet aroma, very fruity. Nice flavour - bitter and sweet notes mix together well. The sweetness borders on the artificial, but otherwise is a fantastic beer.

Najlepszy owocowy lambic z Lindemansa. Jest słodki, ale jednocześnie kwaśnawy przez co niewiarygodnie smaczny.

My favorite of the Lindemanís lambics. Itís not as fruity (itís currant, duh!) and has a little bit of a pine aroma and taste (itís currant, duh!). Funny thing is: I donít like currants.
