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.

beernbourbon (1422) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to ditmier, thanks man. Pour is cloudy light orange color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is cinnamon, chamomile, honey, chai, orange, subtle sweet tea, distant barnyard, and light banana. Really enticing and complex aroma. Flavor is chamomile, velvety chai, cinnamon, and banana. Finish is long on chai and banana. This is interesting beer and worth a try. I can see how people would have strong reactions to it as it is not a conventional flavor. I like it.

A very unusual beer. I liked it a lot, but I’d never drink more than 1 at a sitting. I brought a couple of the big bottles to a party I held last weekend, and everyone agreed. It’s a great experience, and a great unique beer.

From a bottle poured a dark copper color with a small head. Aroma was much stronger than the flavor. Flavor sweet and spicy with a quick finish.

Kinz (3559) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Hazy gold, slight head. Aroma is spicy, rather like, well, tea, with a hint of banana. Flavor is initially tea oriented, followed by some honey accented malts, with a clove and banana finish. The German hefe notes really don’t come out until this one has warmed up. Interesting, subtle, and balanced.

nearbeer (4298) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle at Septemberfest. Cloudy, gold-orange with a small head that runs away. Nose is overpowering banana and allspice. Tastes of honey, cinnamon and sweet alcohol. Light-medium body is syrupy sweet and smooth. The spicing is quite a bit more than subtle or balanced.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2009 Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours golden orange with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, chai tea, lavender, grapefruits, lemon zest, hay, wheat, and slight hints of dry hops. Medium bodied with a tangy, tart mouthfeel and a slow, slightly sticky finish. Excellent special ale.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light amber, almost yellow with a cloudy middle and smallish, white head. Aromas of juniper berries, green tea, coriander, and a nice citrus hint. Mouth feel is extremely smooth, with a full and slick finish. Flavors of bananas, coriander, and a hint of berries on the aftertaste. One terrific beer that I will be sure to be purchasing again!

Bottle compliments of GMCC2181 (GABE). Poured a golden yellow color with small bubbly head. Aroma of bubblegum and spices. Taste of belgian yeast and sweet candy. Very nice carbonation. Overall very enjoyable. Thanks for the awesome trade Gabe, CHEERS!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle at lithy’s Septemberfest. Pours hazy gold with almost nonexistent head. The aroma is laudry detergent, ginger, sugar, and more ginger. The flavor is bubblegum and ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a sweet candy finish. Just too much spice crap going on for me to enjoy this one.
