Review – Lindemans Cassis Lambic
From Merchant du Vin, U.S. Distributor of Lindemans Brewing – A classic Belgian favorite. Black currants have been used for centuries as an ingredient in beers and liqours in Belgium and Northern Europe. Best Served with venison, roasted pork tenderloin with rosemary cream sauce, scones, New York style cheesecake, and fresh fruit.
Lindemans Brewing – Cassis Lambic – 355 ml. bottle poured into my New Belgium glass. 4% abv.
Apperance: Beet red with 1/4 inch of pink fluffy head.
Aroma: Raspberry cream cheese and funk.
Taste: Raspberry cream cheese, yeast, sugary sweetness and a small amount of tartness.
Overall: This blows Lindeman’s Framboise away. Fruity, sugary, funky, tart and highly enjoyable. I have come to accept my wife does not like beer. After giving her a sample of this and the Framboise, she proudly tells people she does in fact like beer, but only the Cassis and the Framboise. I am happy that we have another thing we can enjoy and share.
