COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern update on a 9th century Finnish proto-beer. Brewed with rye, we caramelize the wort with white hot river rocks, then ferment it with a German Weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged directly from the Finnish country-side we added a sort of tea made with coriander, cardamom, lemon grass, Indian Black Tea, and ramps leaves. The spicing is subtle and balanced and Sahtea is a highly-quaffable, truly-unique brew with a full-mouth feel.

prawlie (1150) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
75 cL bottle bit by bit into a pint into a pint glass. Clear orange with plenty of gas. Nice bubbly head but it doesn’t hang around. Coriander spiced aroma, a hint of menthol - very unusual but impressive. Crisp, light menthol spice, yet smooth with a light bitter finish. A sound an unusual tipple.

alcamp99 (72) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Almost bready aroma with thin creamy head. Medium body reminiscent of a Belgian ale. Does not taste like a high ETOH brew (9%). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good weizen. Pour is not great... No head and lightly cloudy. Flavor is wheat and yeast.

Golden amber color and spicy sweet flavor. Wonderfully fruity and spicy flavor with no bitter

gschrade (716) - Collinsville, USA - MAY 12, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours deep gold with white head. Taste coriander, wheat, a little like a Hefeweizen. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iRavali (37) - Delaware, USA - APR 3, 2014
Great beer. Pours like a weizen. Has complex aromas including caramel, corriender and some very obvious tea. The beer itself is very light on the pallet, has a strong finish and the tea is more for smell than the taste. 8/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light orange poured from a bottle with moderate head. Scent of tea as in the name with a sweet tea aftertaste

ericdevin (799) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle from unknown, via Jasmine. Pours a bright orange, clear with little to no head. Aroma sweet and full in chai, very earthy. Body full with a slight liveliness, some syrupy character from ABV. Finish well rounded and subtle.

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 1 Oct 2011. Very similar to a triple but with tea.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rated on 7-11-2010. This beer pours a small smooth head with a lengthy retention, opaque body, fast rising carbonation and no lacing. The aroma is yeasty, earthy and spicy. The taste is sweet, rye, spicy, some yeast, and the ABV comes through. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall this beer has a nice spice characteristic to it in the aroma and flavor. The ABV does come through in the flavor, but it is not overpowering. This beer is worth trying.
