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)

jonas (6141) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. Nice clear chestnut, low carbonation, brown head. Juniper and slightly weird fruity perfume aroma. Light nutty start, somewhat dry and flat roast with a big bucket of fruity/flowery berry notes on top - bit too much really. Medium to light body, mellow dry mouthfeel. Sweet berry aftertaste.

Me encanto esta cerveza, tuve la oportunidad de probarla en un viaje que hice a San Pedro Atacama. Una excelente cerveza para acompańar con todo tipo de nueces. Me encaro su sabor y aroma.

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 (6428) - 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.
