Volkan Santorini White

Volkan beer brewery is located on the island Naxos in the city of Santorini, Greece. What is special about the Volkan beer is that the water is filtered in a unique Santorini basalt filter unit which consists of volcano lava stones, Santorini honey and citrus from Naxos.

I received this beer as a gift, it was bought at a beer shop in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a  330 ml bottle at 5%.

Beautiful and thick flowing yellow going to orange beer.

A small head with a fine top but else a rather rough structure.

Suitable aroma, fruity and sweet, but with a dominating flowery scent to it. Slightly spiced.

Low CO2, a very sweet beer, it is infact extremely sweet, sugary and it is just too much, not a pleasant drink. Its use of honey in the brewing process is not a hit with me. Tastes like a 8-10% beer trying to hide its alcohol with honey.

Overall rating is 71 / 100
