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.

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.

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.

On tap at the Rehoboth Brewpub. Served in a snifter. Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a soapy white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, and yeast. Sweet baked bread taste with heavy notes of honey,with other spices and light fruits. Frothy, creamy but still light. Unique, but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the DFH brewpub. Hazy yellow. Aroma was bready, with a note of dusty coriander and thyme (even though I don’t think they used either one of these ingredients). Flavor matched. At first I thought the thyme was from a lemonade concoction someone else at the table had, but there was a clear thyme note for me in the brew. Surprisingly refreshing and drinkable, along the lines of a wit with some interesting spicing going on. Good.
