3.53/5 rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Copper color with a thin head with short retention and apparent carbonation.
Aroma of true honey, grains, hay and herbs.
Flavor of premium honey, tons of it, but even so I did not find it cloying, and as usual for the Kunstmann, notes of grainy malt, hay and herbs. Hints of almonds and canned fruit. Lightly dry aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
This is the beer that I felt the most honey notes; I gave some extra points for this.

From the Kunstmann site (translated):
"An homage to the Vikings and their special beers brewed with natural honey. We preserve this tradition by using 100% natural honey from the southern fields of Chile's Region X and ingredients of the finest quality. We brew this beer amber in color with pleasant honey flavor and aroma. Ideal for those long afternoon gatherings or to enjoy as a digestif."
Here we go...
Pour - deep amber in color with a big fluffy head. Carbonation levels seem pretty spot on. Nice looking beer.
Aroma - wow, that really smells like honey. Not just because it is sweet but because the aroma of honey just dominates. A bit vegetal as well but more than anything this gives makes you feel like you stuck your head in a honey pot!
Taste - honey sticks. Ever had those? The first sip reminds me so much of those little straws filled with honey. Its sweet but not completely cloying. Very unique flavor profile as the honey really pushes the rest of the flavors to the back. There is some nice maltiness backing it up but not much else.
Overall - if you like honey you best find some of this beer. I've never had a beer that has more in your face honey flavor. A very interesting offering from one of Chile's best breweries.
Would I buy more of it? - I had some other opportunities to try this in Chile but I passed in order to try other things. Chile has a TON of great beer!
