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.

[2541-20091024] 1pt9.6floz bottle. Fragrant juniper and mild mint aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Minty hints but flavour is mostly juniper spruce hops and finishes like a tea. Medium body. Interesting to try.

blipp (8511) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Draft. Pours hazy gold with a thin head. Spicy aroma, with tea, anise, pumpkin spice, and some fruityness. The flavor has a honey sweet/fruity base, with a spice rack or two thrown in. A touch of anise, nutmeg, tea, and way more it seems. Quite pleasant and easy to drink.

jmgreenuk (8400) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a clear orange with a broken white head. The aroma is powerful fruity and spicy. The flavour is sweet fruit and some spicy cloves with some medicinal notes on the palate. Too sweet for me and I wouldn't drink it again.

b3shine (8366) - Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Draft to snifter. Looks good; a semi-transparent orangish-brown with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; black tea and juniper berries with notes of coriander and lemongrass. Tastes like it smells with some weizen yeast notes too. Good on the palate. An easy-drinking 9% beer!

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Courtesy of markwise. Pours gold with brief white head. The aroma is ginger bread, fruit cake and lots of winter spice like nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice. The taste has a brief pulse of sugar sweet malts moving into notes of vanilla and sweet syrup. It gets a bit honey like into the finish as well.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Hazy golden with a thin ring of white head. Nose is earthy sweet with some toffee and a bit of cardamom, cinnamon, and juniper. Flavor brings a lot of the juniper notes and tea flavors to the front, with a finish of cinnamon, earthy toffee, cinnamon, and clove, all on a slightly spicy blonde malt backbone.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012
75 cl bottle @ hotel room, Las Vegas. Bottled in 2012
Vertical with Samuel Adams Norse Legend Sahti
Aroma is spicy with mustard, some coriander and hints of honey. Flavour has spices, mustard, coriander, hints of juniper and spices. A bit too spicy but still refreshing. Nothing to do with Sahti, but still closer to it than Sam Adams. Perhaps a slight feeling of banana estheres in the aftertaste.
