3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at SOPP, Helsinki.
I’ve tried this a couple of times from bottle from Alko in Finland and havn’t thought it was any good compared to the Swedish Gotlandsdricke.
Here at the festival were the sahti was fresh it was much more refreshing and nice in the taste and far the best Sahti at the festiva.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at red light. Sweet sahti tick! Nose is weird. Hmmm. Earthy, light licorice or something. Nearly black with a small off white head. Some sort of weird juice flavor with a light tartness. Taste just kind of falls flat. I guess I don’t get this style. Just meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

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.
