This ancient Finnish-style brew dates back to the 1500s as one of the oldest continuously brewed styles. Deep amber in color, this rugged brew’s distinctive aroma and flavor comes from aging on a bed of juniper berries. The herbal, woodsy, and ripe citrus character of the juniper enlivens a sturdy and smooth malt backbone for a fresh and flavorful brew. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting, This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations.

A very nice beer and a history lesson too. It pours a dark amber with a good sized creamy head. The aroma is fruity with a bit of what seems to be tea. The flavor is quite Malty but nicely balanced. The finish has a hint of vanilla.

Drank at the Newtown Brewfest. A decent brew for the style with plenty of earth, mint, berry, and herb notes. It finishes dry and with a good bit of character.

Bottle. Fairly rich, slick, caramel, bit of a dulling effect, lightly bitter which is appropriate, like a juniper amber ale. Nice juniper aroma, fruity. Seems decently made.

To be fair, I’m sure it’s a very good close recipe to a Sahti. With the herbal sweet tea like taste it seems as if it is need of more bitterness and aroma.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, some juniper and a bit of an herbal character, lots of caramel and a touch woody. Flavor starts with tons of caramel and some of that woodiness, sweet and a touch spicy in the finish, a bit bready. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.

falco242 (378) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Ruby pour on tap with a little bit of foamy head. Aroma is lacking overall. Really unique beer - slight saltiness with a spiciness that opens up with the juniper flavor profile. Definitely worth a taste.

PorterPounder (7321) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof - Pours a sparkling medium copper with an off white head, good sticky lacing. Aroma has a slightly fruit bent to it with some hints of cherries. Flavor is nutty with some muted citrus, some earthy notes, a hint of herbal tea. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent.
