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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

I expected a bit more from this one. This reminded me of a tea more than a beer. Aroma of honey. Light yellow color with consistency of tea. weak bodied. Sweet ending, for me, didn’t taste like alot. Interesting still.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: Draft at the Rehoboth Brewpub. It pours a deep yellow, almost gold color. No head. The nose was very light with just a touch of grain. The flavor was sort of grainy with a weird pizza like flavor leading to a chamomile and wheat finish. Light in body with average carbonation leading to a dry finish. This one isn’t my favorite.
