Background and objectives

The Kissmeyer Icons series is meant as a retrospective salute to those beers previously launched under the Kissmeyer Beer brand that are the most iconic. The beers in the series, all originally launched between 2010 and 2016, represent a broad variety of beer styles with the common denominator that they all exhibit a highly personal and unique ‘twist’ on the base styles. The twists are different from beer to beer, but the overall characteristic is that the Icon beers are smooth, accessible and harmonious. Simply because that is how I like my beer! The purpose with ‘Young Lust’ is to show the beauty of a good, Belgian Blonde Ale, but adding a little Nordic layer of herbal complexity to it.

Bright, pale amber coloured with a rich, white head.

Fish and shellfish, poultry, lighter pork dishes and soft cheeses.

Overall

‘Kissmeyer Young Lust’ exhibits all the well-known and cherished characters of a Belgian Blonde Ale with an extremely aromatic, spicy and fruity aroma and flavour and a slightly sweet, malty body and taste plus a little Nordic twist of herbal complexity. A delightful aperitif beer, but also with a great food matching potential towards lighter dishes.
