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)

This beer is kind of expensive for what it gives. just and amber ale with almost no hints of calafate, it has more hints of coriander, anyway just a normal beer.

ogivlado (5384) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Nice clear amber coloured, small tan head, perfumed blueberry nose. The taste is interesting but not so pleasant. Cough syrup with notes of blueberries and black currant. Quite artificial.

Imagine an ale with blueberry-like flavour. Interesting enough to try it, but a bit too sweet (though not anywhere near fruit-beer standards). Definitely worth trying, even if I can’t see myself ordering it again.

This beer is very nice. It doesn’t fit exactly into the category of fruit beer, since the "calafate" fruit (a type of berry) blends really well with the caramel and light toasted hints. Maybe more body would be appreciated, but you cannot expect so much from a beer that is touching the borderline with macro lagers (CCU).

I highlight this beer primarily for its excellent balance also for its aroma, the fruit not know "calafate" delivers a different flavor to this beer. Good performance for indu trial beer

This was more drinkable than their lager but I couldn’t really tell what the calafate fruit contributed.

jcwattsrugger (11001) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2008
330cc bottle-pours a light tan head and copper color. Aroma is light/medium malt-somewhat sweet caramel, some fruit, herbal. Taste is light/medium malt/bready-somewhat sweet caramel, some fruit, herbal/spicy hops. Medium body. OK/mild carbonation.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2008
My glasses in the hotel must have been hit with a huge dose of detergent as even though I have rinsed each one the beer pours as a flat and unnapealing beer. The colour is fine, like a sherry but I fail to pick up any strong presence on the nose, nor is there a strong flavour of whatever a calafate is. I guess its better than the lager but that is saying nothing.

ha1ag (686) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2008
Bottled in Castro, on Chiloe. Color is clear dark amber with thick head which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweetened with toufee and berries . Sweet and straight taste but not bitter a sort of unusual composition. Very enjoyable

Excelent for an industrial beer. Poor carbonatation. Great aroma and color. Its heavier than the market standard. Best of the family of Austral. Sweet.
