Straight from a 3l plastic bottle at One Pint Pub. It pours murky deep brown with minimal head. The nose is bitter-sweet, fragrant, earthy, dark fruits, jammy fruits, peppery juniper, herbal and caramel. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, dark fruits, jammy berry, figgy pudding, Dandelion & Burdock, umami, blackcurrant, throat lozenges, bubblegum and herbal action with a smooth finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Hides abv very well. Quite drinkable actually. Good.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was caramel, and herbal. Flavor was mildly juniper, light tartness and malt. Weird.

Draft. Dark ruby, basically brown. A lot of banana flavor, some raspberry, vinous cherry, chocolate, and bubble gum. Semi-thin texture and very light overall. Solid

22.5.2014. Fruits, banana, caramel and wheatbeer in aroma. Taste is similar, quite heavy. Still new to sahti, small amount is ok.

Pours brown with no head. A strong aroma of bannanas and bubble gum. My first sahti and I enjoyd it very much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Bryggeri Helsinki. Murky orange/brown shade with no head. Not too appealing but I’ll forgive it. Aroma is bread, berries, rubber. Mouthfeel a little oily. Taste is pretty complex. Similar to the aroma but also slightly smoky. I also get a better sense of the juniper than the Finlandia example I tried. This may be closer to the style guidelines, but I like it less as a beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, from a barrel (or lookalike). Pours brown in color with a small bubbly
head. Sweetish dark bready notes, juniper and bit of earthy forrest
in aroma. Juniper, light woodyness, sweet dark ripe fruityness in
taste. A lot of nice juniper kind of notes here. A buzzer indeed.
Sweet fudge (almost slightly burnt) kind of notes in aftertaste.

Maybe most famous finnish sahti. Fruity, well-bodied and very tasty! When its not botlled in some cases, when served from 5.0 l plastic can, it looses its carbonation after opening very soon.
