COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Calafate fruit is a gift from the southern gods to the patagonian people. Thanks to that fruit, their long walking journeys never stopped, just like the production of this unique beer. (Translation from Spanish by Panzerfaust)

AdiBeer (1902) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Aroma: bit weird, some not very nice malts, caramel, bread. Appearance: clear amber, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty sweets coming up, cereal, bread, light caramel, then quite intense blueberries, lively carbonation. Overall: this is indeed an interesting beer, first time ever to enjoy a palate of blueberries, aroma is not too nice though. Bottle from a Chilean friend.

Crazy. I’d never had or considered a blueberry beer before this trip, and yet this is my second blueberry brew coincidentally. Not bad, interesting, enjoyable, but one is enough.

Pours an amber/light brown with fruity nose. Blueberry notes make this an interesting and enjoyable beer. One of my favorite Chilean beers.

AtronSeige (882) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 1, 2013
Aroma: Sweet plant/herb. Almost like a buchu beer, but less sharp. Malty sweetness, but also a berry/cherry. Appearance: Clear copper body. Off-white, thin head. Good lacing. Initial Flavour: Initial bitter, then herb/plant (Calafate) then candy... Weird! Finishing Flavour: Light bitterness, medium-light sweetness. Berry/cherry Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. thickness/astringent Overall: Very nice! The complex flavours are amazing. There is something in the mounthfeel that I am not fond of, but otherwise a great beer! 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 21A. Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

Aroma dulce, buena apariencia. Toques frutales con un cuerpo bastante agradable. Interesante para combinar con algunos quesos suaves.

Pretty good beer if you like a sweet one. Pours a crimson red with descent head. Aroma of Calafate as you would expect... Sweet and but well balanced, good complexity and low carbonation. Not bad at all!!!
