The flavor of fresh, ripe fruit comes though right away in this Belgian ale. It is deep purple in color; it looks like grape juice. The bite of this tart fruit infused lambic ale is strong but crisp and enjoyable. Its taste is reminiscent of non-alcoholic sparkling juice. Blackcurrant liquer isn’t something that I’d usually ever touch. It must be that Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck, under the St. Louis label, is responsible for a great Framboise, the almost candy flavored Kriek and the, “I will only try it once” Gueuze. Something just attracted me to this Cassis. Maybe it was the fact that I had just tried Unibroue’s version. Premium Cassis lives up to its name and is definitely worth a try if you’re in the mood for something different.
