Muddy brown pour. Aroma is sprucy juniper. Flavor is vegetal with big spicy notes. This is/was a strange beer to say the least
A very nice beer and a history lesson too. It pours a dark amber with a good sized creamy head. The aroma is fruity with a bit of what seems to be tea. The flavor is quite Malty but nicely balanced. The finish has a hint of vanilla. marcus (10869) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 19, 2012
On tap at the West Coast Brewfest. Pours copper with a nice beige head and a sweet citrus aroma. There is a sweet malt flavor with lots of rye and a hint of juniper. JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Light brown color. Mild aroma of plants and malt. Flavor has lightly sweet malt, butter, and green beans, but this is very light. Mild herbal finish. I enjoyed this beer. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Drank at the Newtown Brewfest. A decent brew for the style with plenty of earth, mint, berry, and herb notes. It finishes dry and with a good bit of character.

Bottle. Fairly rich, slick, caramel, bit of a dulling effect, lightly bitter which is appropriate, like a juniper amber ale. Nice juniper aroma, fruity. Seems decently made. whitebear (41) - - MAY 18, 2012
To be fair, I’m sure it’s a very good close recipe to a Sahti. With the herbal sweet tea like taste it seems as if it is need of more bitterness and aroma. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, some juniper and a bit of an herbal character, lots of caramel and a touch woody. Flavor starts with tons of caramel and some of that woodiness, sweet and a touch spicy in the finish, a bit bready. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Ruby pour on tap with a little bit of foamy head. Aroma is lacking overall. Really unique beer - slight saltiness with a spiciness that opens up with the juniper flavor profile. Definitely worth a taste.
