Sahati from Ale Apothecary


By: Ale Apothecary

Product Description: Rated a perfect 100 within its style on Rate Beer. Sahati embodies everything that makes The Ale Apothecary stand high above the 1,000s of so-called "craft" breweries out there.

This gem of a sour ale not only aged slowly in wine barrels, but various parts from a 200-year-old tree that fell on the brewery's property were used throughout its brewing process.

If carving a spruce tree into a lauter tun, lining it with the tree's branches and using the needles for natural filtration doesn't epitomize the term "hand-crafted"…then what does?

By the way, you don't have to know what any of that means in order to appreciate what a superb bottle of beer Sahati is. Available a few times a year.

Tasting Notes: Pours a hazy peach gold and is topped with one finger of frothy head. Spruce and floral pine aroma up front with peaches and black currants. Sweet and sour flavor blends fresh wood and with traces of oak, currants and other tangy berries. Medium-heavy mouthfeel with strong carbonation.

More from the brewer

SAHATI is our interpretation of traditional Finnish sahti. Starting with a 200-year old Engelmann spruce tree felled on brewery property, we created our own kuurna (an ancient Scandinavian lauter tun) to separate the wort from the grain during brewing. The bottom of the kuurna is layered with spruce branches; the needles act as a natural filter and impart resinous oils into the wort. The hollowed-out trunk of the tree also contributes spruce essence and structure from the raw wood. The beer is made of barley & rye malts along with a sparing addition of Goschie Farms Cascade hops and is brewed just a few times per year.

SAHATI is in many ways the very definition of The Ale Apothecary, where complex flavors arrive from the very methods used for production…the result is the process impacts the flavor profile at least as much as the ingredients themselves.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
