Pours a clean orange-ish to amber in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, a lighter wood, spice and a citrus note. In the taste, woody, dry citrus and a mellow spice. A spice like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry citrus and licorice in the aftertaste. Lots of flavor and quite enjoyable.

A: deep burgundy brown with frothy head that retreats into ample lacing - I believe a traditional sahti has such a color
S: malts and herb - predictably, the juniper, and maybe some woodsy notes
T: makes me think of a barleywine with the sweetness replaced by an herbal, earthy flavor - aspects of it are medicinal, with some flavors I associate with yeast and hops, but darker and with a nice bitterness
M: medium body, nice carbonation, teensy bit of astringency, but it suits the herbal nature of the brew
O: look, I've only tried 2 sahtis - this one and Dogfish Head's, and both admittedly took some liberties with the traditional formulation - I really liked the bright, light craft of the DFH Sah'tea, and was ready for this to fall short, but it doesn't - it's clearly just a darker take on the same idea, and not-for-nothing, I think this may be more representative of a traditional sahti. I would definitely buy this again, and would love to do a side-by-side.
