mviljamaa (91) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Pours with little to no foam. Color is cloudy mead or homemade beer. Aroma is fruity and sweet and has malts, fireplace, banana, strawberry/raspberry, blueberry, cinnamon, coriander and plenty of other aromas. Therefore the aroma is definitely complex. Palate is more oily than dry. There’s very little, almost no carbonation. Taste is "fermented" having dried plums, moist raisins, overripe banana and other overripe flavours, some yeast. There’s slightly too much alcohol taste to my taste so the normal (rather than Strong) version might be better. The taste may require some accustomation, but this can be an enjoyable drink, especially for winter months, when enjoyed in small amounts.

Makea, samea, hiivainen ja hedelmäinen. Mukava tuttavuus, mutta enpä tätä tuopillista kiskois.

[2015 Backlog] Sampled at Paul’s place. Pours a hazy amber body with soft carbonated lacing. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with notes of sugar, soft vague fruit, spice, banana and malty bread.

mice (910) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Kuparinruskea väri, ei lainkaan vaahtoa. Hajussa hiivaisuutta, mutta vähemmän kuin Pihamaan Talvessa. Maku makeahko, mutta ei niin makea kuin Pihamaan Talvessa.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Very similar to the lighter version. The alcohol is just slightly more noticeable and the juniper just slightly more intense. A strange brew, that I’m certain must vary widely between breweries.

DKSTRATH (6) - SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2016 does not count
It’s in the 1001 beers to try before you die, and I’m in Tampere, Finland. So why not indulge. Bananas! On the nose and on the palate. I was informed by my host to drink it very chilled. Admits not bad. Not good though. You feel the strength hit you, but it doesn’t taste strong. Perfectly drinkable! Although its 75cl and 10% might stop you having too many that nigh.

IslandHaole (1249) - Misawa, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2015
A big "Mahalo" to Rosenbergh (Jan) for dragging this and another dozen or so beers all the way from Finland to Hawaii! Very similar in appearance and aroma to the 8% version. Sweet, bananas and caramel with bubblegum and light alcohol .A hazy caramel colored beer. Very sweet & fruity. Very little carbonation. Not sure if it’s the extra 2% that gives this an extra kick, but I prefer this, stronger Sahti.

Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Plastic bottle shared to commemorate the finale of Jack’s visit to London. Thanks to Paul for this fine offering. Pours hazy golden-brown. The nose holds doughy wheat, orange and ripe, bruised up banana. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, syrupy, with more old banana, wheat dough. Full bodied, soft, oily and chewy. Viscous. Warming on the finish with chewy, ripe fruits, banana, bread. OK stuff.
