COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with our archeologist friend Dr. Pat McGovern, this beer was created to incorporate the ancient ingredients and techniques described in Egyptian hieroglyphics. It was brewed to 11.4Plato with Emmer (an ancient form of wheat) and loaves of hearth baked bread and flavored with dom-palm fruit, chamomile, and zatar. Fermentation was carried out by a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain captured by Sam and Floris during a recent trip to Egypt. ABV went from 5 to 4.5%.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of chamomile, some peachy hints, light citrus, wax. Tastes of beeswax, chamomile, spicy with some light wheat on the finish. Unusual.

Bottle:   Skipping my usual rating style as I was killing myself to think of what this beer tasted like... it was bugging me and then it finally clicked, fresh pencil shavings.   Its not as bad as it sounds.   Also has a weird cinnamon flavor, with some notes of chamomile.   Interesting to say the least.

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.

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’.

draft at Coles’ Dogfish Head Frenzy, Buffalo NY. Golden pour, wierd aroma of some fruit, bread crust, wafers & light dog shit. Very strange univiting aroma. No wonder Greece kicked their ass. Strange Herbal, sweet, honey flavor. Interesting but far from enjoyable

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.

"the base of this beer seems to share some similarities to another DFH 25 ouncer, Pangea...light yellow, fizzy, spiced. I was drawn to this because I like chamomile in beer and while it was present here, it was overshadowed by the fruit. A refreshing, interesting beer, but it was fairly simple, and had the flaw of being too prickly in the mouthfeel for my taste. For far less, DFH has better beers."
