3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve become obsessed with trying as much of this style as possible. So when some came available in NYC I was all over it.. Pours deep brownish amber. Nose is lovely juniper and toffee. Tastes of junipers, banana, bubblegum, toffee, malt, bready, and light alcohol. Semi flat palate as to be expected with sweet and sour after taste. Lovely i am going plan Finland trip as soon as I can.

Had this in a bar in Helsinki, poured a dark brown into a dimpled mug with no head, spiced aroma and quite a tart taste.

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.
