11.10.2014. Smells like.. sahti. Juniper, wheat, wood, grass. Taste has juniper, malts, wheat and warmth of alco. Its somehow easier to drink than many other sahti Ive tasted. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
(Draught at Bryggeri Helsinki, 13 Nov 2014) Hazy reddish amber colour with brief beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, raisins, juniper berries, fruit cake and a touch of old sweaty socks. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, raisins, apricots, brown sugar, juniper and a fairly sweet finish with low bitterness. Almost full body, quite sweet. Interesting and quite tasty. Nice and warming. Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Tap @ Bryggeri Helsinki, Helsinki. Pours a dirty hazy, dark orange with a small, very brown head. Aroma is sweet and stuffy, berries, juniper. Taste is cloyingly sweet. Caramel, berries, juniper. Much too sweet. Full with decent carbonation. TBone (17545) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Tap at brewpub. Murky nut brown color, small beige head. Strong juniper, woody aroma. Medium-bodied. Good amount of juniper in the flavor. Light banana fruityness but more on dry side, not very estery. Notes of alcohol. Juniper overdose. I prefer a bit more sweet Sahtis. Hermod (7889) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Tap@ olutexpo 2014. Deep amber, no head. Banana, yeast, fruity aroma. Flavor has ripe banana, yeast, sweet fruits. Long sweet finish. Great sahti. Top 5.

Draught. Pours unclear darker copper in color with a small whitish head. Sweet notes in aroma, part honey and part some sweet malts, also some forresty spicyness is present. Little bit of banana and sweet berries mixed with some wooden juniper notes in taste. Tart finish. jookos (6789) - FINLAND - OCT 12, 2014

Dark amber. Light sewage, clay dirty nose, sweet malty. Junipers (bit twigsy), herby green hoppy, slight rye sweetish malty flavour. Soft body, medium full, light bitter finish. More of a beery sahti- the bitters, and more of a beery (lighter, cleaner) body. Not that much of the sahti esters either, but malty at least.

Copper color and little white head. Juniper, rye and roasted malt in aroma. Taste is a bit sour and has a long aftertaste. Flavors of juniper, liquorices, roasted malt and rye. Nice one.
Hazy copper color with blonde head. Aroma has juniper and sweet rye. Slight tartness as well. Flavor has sweet banana and strawberry with yeastiness, juniper and rye. Some sourness as well. Palate is soft and thick. Finish is long with sourness and juniper. A totally different type of sahti than the ones I’ve tasted before, banana is on the background. gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2013
On tao at Pikkulintu, October 2013. (rating nr 1000 this year)
Hazy brownish/orange with a small white head. The aroma was rather sweet with a lot of malt, yeast, some alcohol, and spices. The taste was similar. Also some caramel. Almost no carbonation. An interesting one, I very seldom drink a Sahti.
