500ml bottle shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Unclear orange apprarance with no head. Aroma is apricot juice, rotten pumpkin, vomit, terrible! Flavour is very sweet, fruity, with a terrific vomit aftertaste. Some alcohol traces. Medium body, low carbonation. What a terrible experience!

[ PET Bottle ][ 500mL+ ][ rosenbergh ][ Trade ][ Globe ][ 5.2.15 ]
>> Hazy amber pour, flatter/low carbonation. Dunkelweizen nose like the regular Sahti, some vanilla frosting. Taste is brown sugar, no alcohol even at 10%, no acid like the regular version, no juniper, no bitterness, strange overall. Prefer the non "Strong" version.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow. The aroma is bringing me all back to De manke monnik in Amsterdam or is it Vana tallinn-version of beer.... Good fun. However, he red unclear body has a correspondig questionable flavour... not a favourite. Strong and sweet, ad expected from a sahti.. But off course, it is named finlandia. This is for crazy sauna party.
