2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,75l bottle. Small white head. Flavor is malts, sweet juniper/berry. Very nicely hidden alcohol and minimal carbonation.
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Plastic bottle from Alko. Pours hazy amber, despite taking care of the yeast residues. Aroma is juniper, berries, light fruit, sweetness, light booze. Body is quite heavy, sweet and acidic, only a little bitter. Candy and other sweets. Low carbonation. Warming boozy palate. Actually quite tasty, with well integrated alcohol. A lot more interesting than the regular Sahti. Grzesiek79 (4316) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 7, 2017
Many thanks for this orginal Sahti from Finland to tderoeck. Plastic bottle. Aromat wyraznie czuc tu aromaty lesne, jagody, jalowiec, szyszki modrzewia. Wyglad Barwa kawowo-czekoladowa, zupelnei bez piany. Smak wyraznie zywiczno szyszkowy, gryka, kasza gryczana jalowiec, jagody dzikie, nieco cierpkosci zurawiny. Oleiste i rozgrzewajace. Fajne likierowe wrazenie. Bardzo fajna ciekawostka. kermis (13882) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2017

No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is sweet mineraly, very overripe banana, grass, yeast, minerals, fruit stones, overripe cantaloupe melon, shed, alcohol, hints of smoke. Taste is sweet mineraly, sap, very overripe banana, yeast, minerals, fruit stones, grass, sugar, alcohol, raisins, overripe cantaloupe melon, burnt toast. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh and sweet mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough.
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. jampura (195) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Makea, samea, hiivainen ja hedelmäinen. Mukava tuttavuus, mutta enpä tätä tuopillista kiskois. jredmond (8338) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2016
[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.
