Bottle in Vail with Jetson. Clear, golden orange appearance with a white head. Weird wild, honey, floral, sage-like aroma. Chex mex like, floral, sweet honey, spicy flavor. Pretty weird but not that bad.

bottle. lightly hazed gold with no head. grainy nose wit sour dough bread. fresh bread, pepper flavors, basil, and a lot of oregeno. reminds me of a pizza crust. the za’atar spices are prominent. not getting any doum palm (i suppose it’s like a date). nifty experiment that turned out pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Golden- yellow color with a decent white head. Bread notes are upfront. Also getting very earthy notes and a slight herbal note at the end from the za’tar I guess. I’m not sure if I even pick up any of the doum. Crisp taste throughout. Overall a very good, drinkable and complex beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle, nice label.
It pours a clear honeyish color with a fizzy white head that leaves no lacing.
The smell is odd. Definitely spicey in a north-African sort-of way there is some standard cinnamony smell, graham cracker. It is mildly fruity.
The flavor is floral and spicy. There is a hint of tanginess, it really tastes unlike any other beer.
I am not the biggest fan. A lot of unique flavors here.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours clear golden with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grain, bread, earthy notes, honey and faint citrus. The taste is bread, honey, citrus, other tart fruits, and a slight earthy and herbal note. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was surpisingly good. Pours a clear yellow but with a ring of white head. Reminded me of a kolsh but with a wheaty, bready, finish. I love the whole history of bringing back a beer recipe from egyptian hieroglyphs. Slightly herbal and subtle, crisp up front, and I guess the ’zatar’ comes out on the tail end? good stuff.
