I pour purplish red with a creamy pink foam that releases an aroma thick with ripe currants, sharp oak, and wild yeast. From those notes, you can probably already guess – I'm a Lambic made with blackcurrants. "Cassis" is French for blackcurrants, a classic Belgian favorite cherished for centuries as a key ingredient in liquors.
Like most Lambics, I am spontaneously fermented, then aged in oak casks, which imparts a fine, complex fruit character. I am renowned worldwide as a sweet and sour Belgian beer, a bewitching elixir with a mouthwatering hit of juicy, dark fruits. Indulging in me is akin to savoring an adult version of the finest Ribena, where the intertwining flavors will seduce your palate and leave you longing for another forbidden sip.

Lindemans' story began at an old Vlezenbeek farm with an ominous name, "Hof ter Kwade Wegen", which meant "the farm of bad roads". Don't worry though, the name wasn't a prophecy that dictated the brewery's tragic fate. In fact, the opposite happened; the brewery was able to brew its funky beers using spontaneous fermentation thanks to the hundreds of wild yeast strains floating around the little village. As a result, Lindemans is now one of the most respected breweries in Belgium, with its iconic lambics paving the way to immense success. With generation after generation of Lindemans guiding the brewery, Lindemans is now known for their unique and flavourful lambics; some may even say that its lambics are the best in the world!
