Aotearoa Sahti Old World Ale (500ml Bottle)

Aotearoa Sahti Old World Ale 500ml Bottle

Description

Sahti is one of the oldest surviving beer styles in the world, originating from Finland. Traditionally brewed with juniper berries and branches, no hops a sweet malty base often containing rye, and fermented with Finnish bakers yeast. The style has intrigued me, partly due to my Finnish roots. My dad and his family emigrated from Finland by ship in 1962.

In our Mata Sahti, we've used manuka tips along with some rye malt, juniper berries, low buttering hops, and a Weizen yeast strain. The resulting beer is a complex strong ale, with a sweetish spicy character and banana aromas.

Serve slightly chilled.
Kippis!

Sahti/Gotlandsdricke/Koduõlu

A traditional ale style unique to three areas%3A Finland the Swedish island of Gotland and the Estonian island of Saaremaa. There are subtle differences between them and also between sahti from different regions in Finland. In general however these are strong ales made with a combination of rye and barley malt. They have minimal hop character and instead receive most of their flavor by virtue of being filtered through juniper twigs. Most examples will exhibit a strong yeast character and many homebrewed traditional examples are made with baking yeast. Such yeast often generates a highly phenolic character as well. Some examples will also have a smoky character and this is particularly evident in gotlandsdricke.
