Northern Monk - Passion Fruit Lassi Heathen

Northern Monk - Passion Fruit Lassi Heathen

Steady day at work followed by a house viewing and a few other bits meant that I wasn't in a tip top mood, but I was still looking forward to this beer that I'd been recommended to try by you guys.

Thought the drink had been jumping in my bag, but a nervous can opening proved unnecessary as the creamy passion fruit smell gently wafted out. The first kick back was a really full, hoppy, flavoursome taste with plenty of fruityness and a sweet kick to the end. You can definitely tell that this drink is full of nicely balanced ingredients that really offer something slightly different with every mouthful. The passion fruit is certainly there, but not too overbearing as to blank out the other factors. Each sip from then on kept giving me the same full and creamy fruity tastes with that slight hoppy punch that made the drink that bit special.

I have to say that this is a genuinely delicious drink that I think has to be experienced by every craft beer (and milkshake) fan. Thanks to @beercraftbath and @cherryhoptart for the heads up!

Cheers everyone!

First whiff was a light coffee one with a light sweetness just behind, but you could tell there was something goid on it's way. My following swig was a thick coffee and chocolate taste that you could tell was just packed and full with quality. At the end was a sweet berry finish that just took the edge of the stout being too heavy and balanced...a perfect touch.

First smell is that classic floral and feint tropical one, very light. The following swig had that nice fruity flavour on a very lightly hopped delivery, but I just didn't get that blueberry hit. There was a subtle dab at the back of the mouth, but I could really barely notice it and was expecting a lot more punch. I'm not a huge blueberry fan, however I was interested to see what this can would offer....unfortunately, I'll be waiting for that blueberry beer experience.

The can has the classic Polly's drip on top of a luscious flowery background. First smell is a rich coffee and almost chocolatey vibe with a tantalising raspberry essence to finish. The following taste was a lot lighter than I expected, but still had a certain fullness to it...the bonus was a lot stronger raspberry hit that was really well balanced.
