Lindemans Cassis

Lindemans Cassis (4%): a lambic beer from Belgium. This is a blackcurrant-flavored lambic (beer with spontaneous yeasts). I tried Lindemans Faro last year and it SUCKED! So why did I buy this? Well basically my girl is a blackcurrant lover and as you can imagine she "forced" me to buy.

  • Pours a purple liquid. Looks like red wine sort of.
  • Smells like some earthy wine.
  • Flavor has hints of blackcurrant but is quite reminiscent of sour red grapes.
  • Aftertaste is ... quite vinegar-like.
  • Weak buzz but hey it's 4%.
  • Funny bottle ... is that vinegar? 

Verdict: the flavor is alright but the aftertaste .... yuck!
