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.

Light roast, hints of soy and quite a bit of sweetness. Full mouth Feel, active carb. Low bitterness, more roast, no hops. I don’t taste any wheat..... Tastes like a schwarzbier.

chinchill (3118) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2015
A "Black wheat lager". 330 ml bottle on the beach in Kamari, Greece. Bready aroma with toffee. Distinct and moderately rich flavor: with wheat, toffee, and dark rotated barley. O: certainly one of the best Greek beers I’ve had. Extra points for balance and the distinctive flavor.
