Santorini Black Wheat Lager (with honey and citron).

We condition the water for the beer with our proprietary Santorini basalt "Lava rock filter" and then blend the beer with flavourful ingredients of exotic hops, fragrant Santorini honey and Citrus Medica-a rare fruit brought to Greece from Persia by the army of Alexander the Great.

For each 1€ of profit, Volkan will help reduce the Greek National debt by 50 eurocent.

anstei (977) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of honey with old frying oil. Dirty, muddy, dusty. Disappears completely on the tongue, some honey and very little or maybe old hops. Ugh.

Bottle 0.33l. Hazy dark brown body, small off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, citrusy peel, hint of honey and coffee. Taste is sweet and roasty bitter, sourish finish. Roasted malts, citruses, lactic tones, honey. Medium body, soft carbonation.
Not bad.

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 15, 2016
Opaque dark brown with a mid sized beige head. Good retention. Pleasant olfaction containing notes of chocolate, roast, caramel, toffee, honey, vanilla, and emphatically, malt. Thick bodied and rather creamy. Unique taste consisting of dark liquorice, roast, honey, caramel, molasses, and vanilla with a semi sweet finish containing very little hop. Interesting.

Grumbo (1171) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle from a Thessaloniki supermarket, Greece. Pours a clear mid brown colour with a small off white head. Lovely chocolate malt and coffee aroma is the highlight of this beer. Medium coffee roast bitterness to taste, medium sweetness. Body is light and texture thin which detracted from overall score. Enjoyable but beauty of the aroma not matched overall.

wombat23 (451) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with a beige head. Fine lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and honey. Similar taste, with an added toasted/burnt malt component. A little sweet, with very mild bitterness. Not really picking up on the citric elements. Moderate carbonation and light-bodied. Not bad.

Aroma: sweet with faint malt and coffee; Appearance: black with off white, billowy head that dissipates slowly; Taste: extremely sweet with notes of honey; watery; Palate: thin body with short sweet finish; Overall: Could be worse but would not buy again.

midovark (329) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2016
0.33 bottle from Santorini. Nice black body with a thin white head. Roasted malt, fruits and a hint of coffe in aroma. The taste however is not that good. Not bad at all, but boring.

northropfrye (3123) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Promising appearance - looks quite nice, dark body, off-white/brown head, soapy lacing. Malty sweet aroma, grainy, maybe a touch of honey, a bit cloying. Taste is sweet, a bit smoky, a touch of ashtray. Off-puting in many ways. Not great. They’re not going to pay off much of Greece’s debt with beer like this unfortunately. Ugh. The more I drink this the more I want to pour it down the drain. Way too much like the ass end of a cigarette.
