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.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle 370 ml 3.5%. Age roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured deep dark ruby with an averaged sized, loose, rocky, purple head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of Ribena (blackcurrant concentrate) with great forest floor notes, plum juice, port wine jelly and light yeasty/barnyard notes. Flavor was of acidic fruit with sour red grape skins, tart blackberries, blackcurrant juice, wild berry yogurt, port wine jelly and light musty notes. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry tart mouthfeel, lightly syrupy texture and a good length finish. Extremely complex yet refreshing.

tom10101 (2216) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Reddish purple with a low pink head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity (black currant and blueberries) and sweet with light tartness. No realy funk here. Taste is sweet but less cloying than most sweetened fruit lambic. Light tartness with black currants and sugar notes. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Not too cloying despite the sweetness and the light acidic presence make it reasonably enjoyable.

Lambic frutada com cassis, parece muito um frisante. Pouco acentuada nas caracteristicas de cerveja, mas forma boa espuma e fica bonito no copo. Mas como uma frutada, cumpre seu papel muito bem. Bom pra quem gosta de cervejas mais suaves e adocicadas.
