Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: lstokes on 12-20-2010

For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain.

A very interesting beer. It was light but had a nice over quality to it. The pour was almost like a sunrise of golden amber. Clear and inviting. Not much of any head to talk about.
The aroma was fruit and grapes. The taste also had the same. It had a nice mouthful and the aftertaste was very pleasant.
Enjoyable

Bomber poured into a DFH shaped pint.

A- Golden orange with some haze. White head that doesn't last.

S- Balance of sweet fruit, bready, grainy malt. Some earthy spice, from the za'atar?

T- Very mild sweetness. a little fruity. Malt is smooth a bready.

M- Light. Little carbonation. Very smooth and wet.

O- Interesting. Not much to it, but I think that's the point. A little fruity, and pretty bready.

A very interesting beer. The pour is a light orange with an off white head. The smell seemed all over the place at first with hints of sage, the tea leaves, and other herbs before I caught the fruits. The taste was very earthy with all of the spices before sweet fruits coming out big near the end. It was very layered and complex and offered interesting insight to ancient beer flavors. Worth a try although not an every day kind of beer.
