375ml Bottle von FINESTBELGIANBEERS.COM. JStax (6996) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2017
375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear purple with no heqd of foam. The beer is pretty much flat. Fruity berry notes in the aroma, as well as a woody and mineral character. Mildly acidic. Mote of a jammy sweet than anything. Medium body. Alright overall, but could do well with more carbonation. Maybe it was just too old, though. Lot B.

Backlog, Bottle, pours a flat reddish purple color without much head/lace. Notes of acidic fruit, horse blanket, leather, oak, and farm. Some hay and berries as it opens up but its very dry and sour overall. Medium bodied. sokuzs1 (1455) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Blackcurrant, barnyard, gooseberry, spicy, vinegar in the background. Moderate sour. FinnIckler (758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Both the Experimental Cassis and the Cassis. The Cassis pours very dark red, the experimental light red. The Cassis smells of black currant, some vinegar, cherries, blackberry. The Experimental smells very vinegary, some currant. The Palate of the Cassis is some sour currant, cherries, red grapes, strawberry. The Palate of the Experimental is very sour, but also a bit more intense (one year old), still ok drinkable. Normal Cassis: 4/5. Experimental: 3.6/5

2016: Red with little white head. Aroma is cassis cherries, hints of vinegar, more berries, some old mealy stuff. Taste is very sour with a hint of vinegar, some fresh sweet cherry. Too sour vinegar. Rather not.
2017: Dark red with little white head. Aroma is shy cherries with cassis, no vinegar. Sweet milka chocolate. Taste is dry sour berries. Some earthyness. Mealy on the tongue. Only in the finish some vinegar. Still has a nice fruity character.
Rating for the 2017 version. anstei (2450) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 Bottle, Experimental Cassis 2016. Pours dark purple. Aroma is cassis, light funk. Body is strong vinegar, still cassis, but also stingingly sour. Dry short vinegar palate.neongolden (1716) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2017
Side by side: Cassis Lambic 2016. Darker. Much more mellow and balanced, but also thinner. Better fruit. My numbers is for this one.
(375ml April 2015 bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a murky red-brown with no head or bubbles of any kind. Aroma is quite sour and very funky, as heavy a barnyard/manure note as I’ve experienced in lambic coats the nose of this beer. Underneath that, notes of oxidized wine vinegar, currants, dusty fruit skins, tart red berries, extremely musty basement and wood. Flavour is SOUR. The sourest lambic I’ve ever had, moreso than their framboise, and indeed one of the sourest beers. Currants and other very tart red berries, lemon, lighter notes of white vinegar, touches of red grapes, some wood, musty funk and earth underneath, the finish drying somewhat and showing more obvious currant and fruit skins. Remains quite tart through the sip though. Medium bodied, kind of oily, and absolutely flat. It’s definitely not without merits, showcasing a decent bite of the black currants, but the sourness is too overpowering for me. I prefer the various Mikkeller tilts at lambics with this fruit.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, blackcurrant, tart, horse blanket and brettanomyces.
Opaque dark red/purple beer with a slight beige/pink head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood and blackcurrant; ends slightly dry and sour with tart, horse blanket and brettanomyces.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is slightly too much of the sour aspects, totally missing the sweet start of the taste. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well.
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2017 Bottled 4th Week of February 2017, tasted 8/7/17; color is really red wine like, no head; aroma is cassis, sour, funky; taste is cassis, sour and dry, funky, long dry funky and fruity finish; texture is juicy and tannin dominated, no carbonation
