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.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle Hazy, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is an earthy, spicy, fruity marriage of ginger root, juniper berries, black pepper, lemongrass, cardamom and fuzzy fruits. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Spicy, fruity essences abound in the sugary flavor. Not as herbal as the aroma. Pleasantly sweet finish.

"9% abv (not 6) so there is a kick. hazy tan-orange color. aroma is wonderful*. its been chilly here for the last few days and this would fit perfect as a late fall or winter seasonal. one taster said it smells like Christmas. The * is that wonderful in this sense is a well blended chai tea. if youre a sucker for chai tea like me, youll love this beer. if not, theres really no reason to drink a chai tea beer! body is full and feel is pretty smooth. flavor is great...black tea, spices, juniper, malt, yeast. very very good with a lasting impression. i wish this were more easily available."
