Sahti

500 mL bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA
Pour is a hazed, well carbonated mid-orange. The carbonation does not lead to much (if any) head or lace – probably due to the ABV.
Nose is very big on honey but even bigger on the floral, herbal, band-aid medicinal, phenolic notes. Pretty extraordinary!
The strong attributes of the nose are tempered in the taste with honey coming through again but not the other qualities. Some alcohol but absolutely nowhere near 11% – amazing! Obvious comparisons with meads are both valid and understandable.
Finished slightly dry in a champagne like feel/taste.
Very high drinkability when all things are considered.
