10’000 years in the making, the LPA marks the return home for beer. From the land where beer and human civilisation were born, comes a new brew that is a marriage between Western brewing tradition, Eastern complexities, and a sublime expression of the Lebanese Renaissance. It was inspired straight from the Lebanese spice markets. For decades there has been little choice in the diversity of Lebanese beers. This beer provides an alternative for the Lebanese population, with ingredients such as za’atar, sumac, mint, sage, anise, and chamomile. The use of such herbs and spices makes this distinctive craft brew truly Lebanese.

330 ml bottle sampled @ Cardinal. Unclear golden body with a white head. Strange and complex aroma, mainly from not so frequented used spices in beer brewing, oregano is very easy recognized. Flavor is rather light malty with focus on the spices, again oregano is obvious. Maybe oregano not to be the strongest aroma, but for me the one easiest to detect. Medium body and aftertaste with the same spices as the rest. Totally drinkable and fun to taste, but more like an experiment maybe.

Lubiere (13383) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, light caramel malt with light grassy herbs, faint sumac. In mouth, a good caramel malt followed immediately by zaatar bread, lemon sumac, a bit thin but enjoyable.

Drake (13257) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear oddly red-orangish amber color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of herbal notes, heavy spice definitely reminiscent of Middle Eastern cuisine. Sage, basil. Some earthy notes. Interesting. The taste is similar... heavy spice, earthy notes, pale malts. Medium bodied, quite interesting. May not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I like it!

a not-so-subtle mint/menthol note in the nose. nice clear medium amber color, reasonable off white head. minty/menthol flavor, very assertive. grassy quality. slight sweetness, like stevia, in finish. i couldn’t drink more than one of these -- the mint/menthol/spices aren’t really my thing.

Denne øl dufter meget specielt. Meget krydret. Lidt ligesom krydret kinesisk mad. Farven er uklar brun gullig. Smagen er meget bitter. Næsten som ørevoks.
