3.78/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, light ruby gold topped by a slight head that, thin though it is, retains its thinness throughout and leaves slight spots of lacing.

Aroma of fresh doughy bread drizzled in caramel sitting by a freshly trimmed hedge...sprucey with lemondrops and quiet notes of grapefuit in the lower register. Very nice if a bit subdued.

The taste is yeasty, sweet and caramelly, very malty, a little floral-soapy with some lemon and toasty rye. Finishes off-dry. Luckily I am sipping away at a bomber over the course of an hour, and as it warms and things progress the juniper aspect sheepishly comes to the fore as a bit of gin enters the fray. A little spice lingers long in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light carbonation.

This is my first Sahti. I thought it would have a lot more of a juniper thing going on. I dig this beer and would happily get it again if it was available where I live. Don't get me wrong. It's just not what I was expecting.

3.5/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from bottle into a New Belgium globe. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, BIG wheat, BIG grain, spice, and big sweetness. The flavor was of sweet malt, spices, grain, subtle tea, sugar, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. With this being my first brew from the style I can honestly say that I don’t have a refined palate for this style, however, I was not a massive fan of it. The aroma was very sharp when it came to sweetness/maltiness. The flavor was a little bit better with a bit more balance. That was a very welcomed change as based on the aroma, I was rather concerned once I smelled it. Glad I got the chance to try this one though, but don’t think I will go out of my way to do so again.
