Finlandia Sahti, Finnish sahti label

Sahti is a traditional beer from Finland made from a variety of grains, malted and unmalted, including barley, rye, wheat, and oats; sometimes bread made from these grains is fermented instead of malt itself. Traditionally the beer is flavored with juniper berries in addition to, or instead of, hops; the mash is filtered through juniper twigs through a trough shaped tun called a kuurna in Finnish. Sahti has a distinct banana flavor due to the yeast. Sahti is a top-fermented brew (ale), and while baking yeast has been used traditionally, ale yeast may also be used in fermenting.

The end product is a cloudy, mildly alcoholic beer with yeasty and phenolic flavors and distinct taste similar to banana. Sahti is traditionally homebrewed but in recent years commercial versions have become available. Some are produced by specialist sahti brewers like Lammin Sahti, Joutsan Sahti and Finlandia Sahti (no relation to the vodka brand of the same name). Others are made by Finnish microbrewers such as Huvila and Stadin Panimo. The best time to sample all the commercially-produced sahtis is at the annual Sahti Week at St. Urho's Pub in Helsinki.
