I didn’t care for this, my first true sahti. The aroma is quite pungent, almost curdled milk. The flavor has a similar funk to it that just didn’t work at all for me.

ALIBALI (687) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2016
Chinesisch süß/sauer????? Irgendwie ja, aber das als Bier???? Der Trunk sauer,kräutrig unangenehm. Das Aroma ebenfalls extrem, aber auch alles andere als stimulierend. Ein bisschen extremsauerbierinteressant. Mehr leider nicht. Vom Hahn beim STRONGBOWS Stand während der KIELER CRAFT BEER DAYS 2016.

Tap @HBF 2016. Murky dark brown color. Tiny size, white head, stays as a ring. Sweet, raisins, juniper and smoke in aroma. Yeasty, sweet, raisins, banana, juniper in taste. Sweet, banana and fruity juniper in aftertaste. Soft to almost no carbonation. Nice and mellow. Very drinkable.

Bryggeri Helsinki. From an (official) plastic bottle, about a 6 pinter I reckon! Hazy amber beer, no head. Very modest carbonation. Nice tangy fruits, dried fruits and crystallised fruits, not that sweet. Orange, lemon and cranberry ensue. Traces of spice and herb. Light fruity tangy finish. Nice Sahti, goes down very easy.

0.33 l bottle @ Bryggeri Helsinki. Brown cloudy colour. No head. Taste is a bit sweet since sahti has no hops at all. There is also some banana taste. Lammin sahti is my favourite in this style. Well, I have sampled actually just a few of them, since they are not widely available.

From my Sahti source VastActiv, so they now put this in bags however he diddnt think he could get through customs with it so poured in some traditional plastic bottle. Pours a flat brownish red with no head. Nose is tobacco, berry, and bready. Tastes of juniper, fruit punch, banana bread, menthol cigarettes, and some pecan. Chewy mouthfeel. I had the American made version of this brew on tap which seem more juniper and less menthol. Either way love me some Sahti not sure what it is about this strange brew.

olsvammel (5979) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Spicy, malty and yeasty smell. Similar taste. Low carbonation. Well hidden ABV, felt more like 5%. I think this was my first real sahti.

Tim Webb (350) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 On draught at Villi Wäinö in Helsinki and stopper-bottled direct from the brewery. That means it was the Finnish version, not the collaboration brew or something transported informally to some far-off place - Lammin Sahti has no hops and so does not travel. I am too old and polite to launch a screaming rant at ignorami who think that just because they don’t get it there is something wrong with it, rather than that they have limitations. Sahti is a folk beer style. It pre-dates Ratebeerians by several centuries. You judge it by its own standards not today’s simpler ones. If a sahti smells and tastes of banana bread that is because it is supposed to taste like banana bread. It is a rye beer fermented with bakers’ yeast or cultivated softer-end wild yeast, filtered by and infused with juniper (branches not berries) then packaged for consumption. By all means conclude it is not for you but don’t even dare to contemplate that it is not for the world. It will outlast IPA à la mode, I would like to bet. And this is not A sahti, it is THE sahti. The other Finnish sahti brewers may be the equal but none yet surpasses it.
