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.

Tap @ Parkway. Hazy dark gold pour with an off-white head leaving a moderate lace. Multiple flavors assault you at the first pull: spices, vegetables, fruits, maybe even meats? Definitely some tea in there. Too much going on for me and not balanced. I much prefer the Midas Touch or Theobroma from DFH.

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.

I’ve decided that I’m not a fan of Sah’tea in general. Have had one from Sam Adams as well and I’m just not a huge fan. DFH is very complex, slightly spicy and it just wasn’t for me. Yes, there were a lot "floaties" that came from the bottom of the bottle when poured.

Golden yellow with floating yeast. Very spicy nose. Tastes strongly of herb tea. Just ok.

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.
