bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bomber. Pours copper with a foamy off-white head. Mixed spice aroma. Med. body/sharpish carb. Flavor is a melange of spicy flavors. Grains of paradise? Chocolate? It’s drinkable beer, but confusing to me. Finishes not sweet, and not really bitter either. Whatever the flavor is, at least it is strong.

brokensail (10744) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
A: The pour is a clear light golden-amber color with almost no head, just a few islands of white foam. S: A slightly soured aroma with some hints of lemon. A decent amount of woodsy herbs and an interesting berry-like fruitiness. A fair amount of alcohol is noticeable as well. T: Very woody, herbaceous, and "green". I don’t really get the same fruitiness that I found on the nose. Sort of harsh and abrasive to the palate, especially with the high level of alcohol. M: The body is medium with a fairly high level of carbonation. D: This didn’t seem all that "Sahti-like" to me. I think you’re better off sticking to a more traditional example or at least the Nogne-O version.
