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. SSSteve (4006) - - DEC 24, 2011
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. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Shared bottle. Orange pour with small white head. Earthy nose with chamomile, funky fruit, and wood. Med body with sweet fruit, tea, wood, earth and spice. Sweet semi-dry finish with more tea. srobi003 (58) - odenton, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2011
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.

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.

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. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2011

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. adrian910ss (2574) - Doylestown, PA, USA - APR 12, 2011
