Day 89 Drink: Lindemans Cassis Lambic
In the current issue of All About Beer Magazine my "Next Beer" column is all about the growing varieties of fruit beer available to beer drinkers. We have moved well beyond the cherry and raspberry beers that emerged from Belgium. A fruit salad of flavors has emerged, from banana to watermelon.
Lindemans is one of the better know Belgian fruit beer makers. Lindemans Cassis Lambic has a foamy, long lasting purple head and nice fruit nose. It has a cloudy reddish blue color from fresh black currants added to a Belgian lambic. The flavor is a tart with nice dry fruit skin character. Lovely and lush dessert classic.
