TASTING NOTES
Legend has it that barrels of this ancient brew were found on sunken Viking ships. This Nordic ale took root in Finland becoming 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.

One thought on “Samuel Adams Norse Legend Sahti coming in May

  1. Sounds like with the rye malts, they’re planning on keeping the sweetness in check, unlike another prominent brewer who also brews a Sahti (I’ll give you three guesses).
