COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

thedm (5555) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark red brown colored body. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of black malt and mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

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.

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 (1199) - 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.
