COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern update on a 9th century Finnish proto-beer. Brewed with rye, we caramelize the wort with white hot river rocks, then ferment it with a German Weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged directly from the Finnish country-side we added a sort of tea made with coriander, cardamom, lemon grass, Indian Black Tea, and ramps leaves. The spicing is subtle and balanced and Sahtea is a highly-quaffable, truly-unique brew with a full-mouth feel.

I love this beer , its got some great flavors of malts and spices, thyme, pepper and coriander. the mouth feel is full with a slight spice but not hoppy feel. the only true down side is that their is a definite plastic taste which can not be ignored. but this is was to have.

Thanks AJ. Pours a cloudy amber color with a soapy white head. Aroma of corriander, cinnamon, and yeast. Tastes of corriander, yeast, cinnamon, and fruit. Very different.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Hazy orange pour. Some scents of tea and spice. Light hops. Very smooth taste. The lightest bit of spice on the flavor as well. Tasty quite tasty.

Definitely can taste cinnamon and chai tea flavors. Taste almost like some winter warmers. One is enough for me though. Its a unique and interesting brew, but too much spice to enjoy a lot of.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy golden body and a fading white head. Aroma of chai tea, spice, and honey. Taste is sweet, with honey, chai tea, spruce, fennel, and caramel. High carbonation. A nice beer to drink.

Slightly hazed yellow pour with white head and lace. Hugh all spice, with hints of pumpkin, and ginger. Sweet malt, ginger, and light pumpkin. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy.

beernbourbon (1580) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to ditmier, thanks man. Pour is cloudy light orange color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is cinnamon, chamomile, honey, chai, orange, subtle sweet tea, distant barnyard, and light banana. Really enticing and complex aroma. Flavor is chamomile, velvety chai, cinnamon, and banana. Finish is long on chai and banana. This is interesting beer and worth a try. I can see how people would have strong reactions to it as it is not a conventional flavor. I like it.

A very unusual beer. I liked it a lot, but Id never drink more than 1 at a sitting. I brought a couple of the big bottles to a party I held last weekend, and everyone agreed. Its a great experience, and a great unique beer.

From a bottle poured a dark copper color with a small head. Aroma was much stronger than the flavor. Flavor sweet and spicy with a quick finish.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Hazy gold, slight head. Aroma is spicy, rather like, well, tea, with a hint of banana. Flavor is initially tea oriented, followed by some honey accented malts, with a clove and banana finish. The German hefe notes really dont come out until this one has warmed up. Interesting, subtle, and balanced.
