kustie (211) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Samea ulkomuoto. Maussa selkeät sahtimaiset piirteet. Jälkimaun happamuus häiritsee voimakkaasti, muuten maut kohdallaan. Vaatii toisen kokeilukerran.

Turboninja (96) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2014
A bit dryer sahti has the basic flawors of banana, some vanilla and fruits. Perhaps a hint of smoke, but away from the smoked aroma. Light carbonation, which is unusual but refreshing.

tap @ Naamat
Hazy reddish orange to brown beer with little blonde head. Aroma has banana, bubblegum, toffee, yeast and some vinegary sourness. Flavor is sweet with banana and toffee and slightly sour. Gets more sour towards the end of the glass. Palate is thicker than medium and stinging. Finish is carbonated and sweet. A sweet and refreshing sahti, but I don’t have enough knowledge of the style to judge this,
