Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

4.23/5  rDev +25.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured From Pint Bottle into large glass.

A- Light amber with a slightly frothy, short lived, off white head dissipating into a fine lace.

S- Herbal and slightly spicy with a bit of fruitiness.

T- A bit grainy and unimpressive at first, then a bit fruity with a very slight "wild" beer sourness but certainly not too much, Finishing of with a very pleasant herbal after taste.

M- Rather bubbly, but in a crisp refreshing way. Not to thin nor to thick for the style.

O- I really enjoyed this beer. Definitely looking forward to having it again especially in the warmer months. I wasn't sure what to expect and I almost didn't get it because it is on the pricey side but upon seeing the Arabic seasonings my interest was peaked I am glad I went for it! Well done in my opinion.
