bottle - Pours clear orange with a small off-white head and a fruity, malty aroma. It’s sweet and fruity with a faint hint of juniper and a touch of hops in the finish. It’s alright.

pours a pale gold, malt and tea aroma. Thick body, lots of tea and juniper flavor. Pretty good all around beer

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Hazy amber colour. Small white head. Gently malty aromas. Notes of biscuits and caramel. Slightly oxidized. No noticeable rye nor any juniper, so it is hard to tell why they call it a sahti, for it does not appear like one. That said, it is a pretty tasty beer.

Pours a translucent orange-green with a fast fading thin white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, rye, bread, some bitter citrus.Taste is very mild, very nice up front; bread, earth, yeast. The flavors become somewhat generic however. Not much character in the middle. The finish is bitter, but again, rather general in flavor and character. Not bad, not great; a step up from okay. This feels like an incredibly well-made MACRO-brew. I feel like it would make a GREAT gateway beer for someone who only drinks Busch Light.

Pours light amber with a large off-white head. Smells a bit like rye, some earthiness, and a touch of juniper. Tastes bitter, a bit funky, kinda citrus peel spiced, juniper notes. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and active mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith Sahti finishes funky.

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Beautiful, clear golden-amber color with thin white head. Pleasant aroma of grain, hops and subtle juniper. Restrained malty sweetness, some rye crispness, slight biscuit taste. Nice round mouthfeel, very dry finish. Here’s the thing: I know talk of "beer styles" makes the New Belgium brewers’ skin crawl, and I like that about them. But hey, they called this Sahti, not me, so I feel entitled to quibble. Sahti is an ancient Finnish style using rye as most of the grainbill, mashed with and lautered through a juniper twig bed, not boiled, utilizing little or no hops, fermented with rough baker’s yeast, left unfiltered. This beer doesn’t appear to use much juniper or rye, is clearly boiled with hops, fermented with a very refined neutral yeast, and microfiltered. It’s a great beer, possibly better than most Sahtis, definitely more shelf-stable, but it barely resembles true Sahti. Regardless, you should give it a try.
