Dogfish Head Sahtea, Appearance: The beer pours a hazy golden-yellow with orange highlights. Short white head. Aroma: Christmas beer style aromas of ginger, cinnamon, orange peal, and pine. Strong notes of mushy banana. Flavor: Lots of banana on the front, along with more cinnamon and cloves. Almost salty on the attack, and then mildly sweet and citrusy on the midpalate. Finish is lengthy and spicy, mostly tasting of cinnamon, with the banana (now rotting) continuing on for several seconds.
