A big "Mahalo" to Rosenbergh (Jan) for dragging this and another dozen or so beers all the way from Finland to Hawaii! A new beer, a new style and a new country for me, the "Trifecta"! Has a sweet, yeasty scent, reminds me of an under-carbonated Belgian Double.A hazy caramel colored beer, nearly flat, no head. Very sweet, fruity with hints of allspice. Flat, like a beer left in a glass overnight. With all the trouble to bring this all the way here, I’d love to say that I really liked this beer, but it just isn’t my cup of (Sah) tea.

Brown color with very little foam. The smell is sweet and boozy. The taste is fruity (Blackberries) and quite sweet. The oily taste doesn’t change a lot in the aftertaste. Oily and fruity sweet beer.

From the bottle, thanks anstei! Hazy deep orange-brownish color with basically no head. Malty aroma, sweet! The juniper berries are there, but not too crazy. Taste is sweet, malty, some juniper. Low carbonation. Nice, but sweet...

Bottle share at Partizan. Thanks to birthday-boy Paul for my final style tick. Clear plastic bottle, BB Aug 2015. Hazy dark orange, small bubbly white head. Aroma is honey, banana esters, marzipan, concentrated apple, musty solvent, Apple Sourz, toffee. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apple, toffee, mead, more musty solvent and booze. Pretty sweet, but nice. I wasn’t expecting to like sahti this much.
