Profanity (18) - Espoo, - FEB 23, 2014
If I’m not mistaken this is the first sahti that I taste. I found it really interesting and full of taste and body. Brown hazy colored, smell of yeast, banana and juniper. Aromas of tar, banana, yeast, caramel and fudge. Medium sweetness. I have to go more into the sahti world also.

Tap@ St Urho’s Sahtipäivät 2015. Deep amber, no head. Somewhat hoppy aroma, earthy, juniper. Flavor has caramel, hops, oranges, banana. Not working for me.

jookos (3345) - FINLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Tap@urho sahtipäivät. Oragne hazy. Orange hoppy malty caramel nose. Junipers, ripe fruits. Med full bodied, bitter pine foresty green finish. This is really hoppy, lots of hoppyness, would probably guess an ipa of some sort based on the nose. And the bitter hop resinous finish..

rosenbergh (8411) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 05/14. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Hazy brown colour with no head. Banana, sweetness, malt, bread, juniper and some mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is bread, malt, juniper, sweetness, mild banana and mild bitterness. Quite close to a proper sahti. Not bad at all. 9.5% well hidden. More of this, please, Pyynikki.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Murky brown color, cloudy. Brown sugar, birch twigs and yeast in the aroma. malty sweet, woody, alcoholic flavor. Soft red fruit and banana. Rye bread. Very low on carbon. Good!

Unde (550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
Muddy brownish orange, with a little-to-none head at all. Taste has lots of bananas, orange and lemon peel. Taste has fresh bananas, some stingy juniper, salty spices and slight alcohol booze in the end. Full body with quite no carbonation at all, as in traditional sahti. Still sahti isn’t in my favorite list of beer styles.

DutchDrebus (4679) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle @ benzai shared by benzai. Dark amber colour with no head. Smells ’roze kermis zoetstok’. Fucking sweet. Tastes sweet, ’wijnbal’, artificial fruits, ashy. No carbo at all, medium body.

VastActiv (3859) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle 0.33l from local Alko, Helsinki. Colour is murky brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Grain, yeast, some fruits, bananas, spices, some sweetness and malts. Sorry but this bottle was very yeasty or needs more settling in fridge (only one day).

esox (1177) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled. Murky, dark orange-brown color, thin rim of white foam. Aroma is malty sweet, doughy, banana-estery, spiced with juniper, with a hint of smoke or medicinal notes and berryish alcohol. Sweet, heavy maltiness, smoky notes, well balanced juniper. Only slightly alcoholic finish. Full bodied, flat texture. This is true sahti, bottling seems to work. I really like the balance of juniper vs. malts and yeast. Well done, Pyynikki!
