COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ancient Finnish-style brew dates back to the 1500s as one of the oldest continuously brewed styles. Deep amber in color, this rugged brew’s distinctive aroma and flavor comes from aging on a bed of juniper berries. The herbal, woodsy, and ripe citrus character of the juniper enlivens a sturdy and smooth malt backbone for a fresh and flavorful brew. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting, This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations.

[email protected] Deep red colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is spices, glue, syrup and some herbal notes. Flavour is quite similar. Decent brew, but anyone claiming this one is a sahti or even in someway trying to claim it’s a sahti’ish drink should be shot.
