2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
350 ml bottle. I’m gonna agree with the other comment: when I heard about the Lucuma beer i thought it would be such a great thing for the lack of chilean beer identity (even if it’s not from the natives from the south, that’s marketing), but the quality of the product don’t really help, it’s not terrible, but could have beer better. It smells a little bit like lucuma, yes, but could be better. Amber color with little white head. Taste a lot like lucuma, but it’s waaaaaay too strongly tasted, and not at all a summer beer. Don’t you know what elegance is, Volcanes friends? The effort is nice though...

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On bottle from Bierfest Santiago.
Bottle stated Premium Lager, but I was in for a surprise on this on. Obviously Lúcuma is a fruit eaten by the indigenous people far south in Chile- so a very different beer then expected.
Dark golden color, ok foam and lively carbonation. Intense fruity aromas , somewhat artificial , malt, raisins- light milk chocolate .
Light/ medium body and complexity.
Very sweet beer, could improve by more punch.
Very special beer...
