2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle at home, orange-yellow pour with white head, big lively carbonation. Aroma has notes of corn, grain, some grass, slight fruity wheat notes, but it has some things in it that I haven’t smelled before. Taste is a mix of weird corn, grain, some slight fruit, hints of lemon, grains of paradise but in a weird way, touch of weird grainy notes, finishes fairly dry. Interesting, but not all that tasty.

750mL bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of mint, chamomile, grains - very bizarre spiced mix. Flavour of weird, weird spices: mint, chamomile, grains, skunk cabbage and weird herbal qualities. This is not good at all.

10oz pour on draft for $10... What the hell, Cock and Bull? If I’d had known that before the bill came, I’d have spent myself an extra $2 and picked up a 750ml. A beer brewed with Zatar is really interesting to me though, it’s an ingredient featured in a great many Lebanese dishes, my family would have appreciated this. I thought I’d save myself a bit from the bottle price, but the way C&B priced it is just taking advantage of beer-tickers that often frequent there. Anyway... I did very much enjoy the beer, sticker-shock not withstanding. Nice, thin foamy white head, mostly clear golden color. Like I said, Zatar, and the thyme spice that’s included in it, is a big part of my palate. The Saison Du Buff had a very satisfying amount of raw thyme for me, but this Ta Henket is distinctly Zatar, a unique flavor on it’s own, and very spot-on. It’s much more savory, a hard to describe spicy taste unique to zatar that I enjoy very much. Very interesting. Smooth texture, crisp lighter carbonation. Great zatar aftertaste. Impressive big spice aroma for such a light ABV beer. $10 for a tulip, hell no. But I’ll definitely be buying a 750 or two to share this with the Lebanese family members and friends I know, I think they’ll be very interested in this.

1/1/12. Happy New Years! Why not celebrate with DFH’s latest gimmick? Clear golden pour, almost orange, with a small, fluffy off-white head that fades to a ring and laces in spotty chunks. Somewhat strange aroma that does in fact remind of baked bread, some floral aspects, and definitely some metallic tap water. Sweet flavor with touches of honey, toast, sweet flowers, and more metal. Meh. This may or may not make my top 5 list of beers made wirh Za’atar and Emmer Farro’.

Bottle .. Had twice over the past few months .. . an interesting beer indeed .. . pours a hazy caramel .. good healthy foam .. . light spice, prune, yeast, wheat, raisin, and more spice .. . light mouth, quite effervescent .. . love the background of this beer but a novelty at best .. . . They told me I had type A blood, but it was a Type-O.
