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.

An aroma of chai tea. flavor the tea with banana and clove much like a good enough tripel. berries and perfume of berry works its way into the flavor pattern. putty sweet body and some malt works it’s way into the lengthy diminishing finish. not bad at all and not worth the price to try it $12.99 the 25oz bottle. looks like tea in the glass.

Hazy orange, head diminishes to nothing quickly. Smells sweet and like a potent herbal tea. Quite unique concoction of smells that are hard to dissect. But the wiezen character is obvious with a clove aspect Tastes sweet, little hop bitterness, cardamon pods, medicinal, peppermint. Feels slick and sticky but cooling and medicinal with a long duration. Conceptually interesting and I think well executed for what it is. Enjoyable.

D: Enbär och gran - frisk S: Mycket avbalanserad smak, den "värsta" enbären lite tillbakadragen. Positiv frisk och inte tvålig

Certainly interesting... Agreed on chai, juniper berries and banana. Really pungent and, honestly, kind of soapy.

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Bottled. This beer pours yellow with no head or lace. Smell of gin and black tea. Taste chai, almost like a saison, starts strong and end mild.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Appearance: Clear medium amber with finger thick white head. Aroma: Cinnamon, clove, aniseed, biscuit, fruity, floral, bubble gum and tea. Taste: Medium sweetness and bitterness with low sourness. Slightly salty. Palate: Thick rough texture, medium body, average carbonation, lingering spicy finish and a touch astringent. Comments: Enjoyable as a one off. Too much spice and a bit sickly.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Pours a hazy dark gold/orange color with medium froathy whitish head. Aroma is sweetened fruits and a good amount of yeasty/spicey/doughiness. Flavor very tart and citric, with a bit of tea flavor and some dry booziness in the finish. Not a fan.

Ratman197 (10887) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2009
750 ml bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of chai, light juniper and light carmel. Palate was medsium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, chai and light juniper with a smooth spiced finish. Another boring overpriced beer from Dogfish Head.

Bottled. The aroma has tea and juniper. Slightly hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is sweet has tea and juniper again. Bit sticky mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

750mL bottle purchased at Bark’s Beer Cave in Plattsburgh, NY. Lots of smokey, herbal, juniper berry notes in the aroma. There is also a significant yeasty banana ester aroma here, too. Not a huge fan of the nose. This is like a transparent golden snowglobe. Lots of suspended floaties present here. Pretty small and quickly dissipating white head. Starts sweet, sugary, and a bit cloying. Some honey notes in the middle before there is some floral juniper berry flavors to finish. Sticky and cloying with underlying estery yeast flavors.
