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.

Dogfish Head Brewery - Ta Henket - 1pt 6fl oz bottle

Look - Pours hazy golden-orange with a full fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Moderate carbonation.

Smell - Subtle fruits and bready with definite chamomile. Spice throughout.

Taste - Light and fruity, chamomile on top. Crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Rests on the palate almost like a tea. Good drinkability but a bit sweet.

Overall - Interesting brew, not really my bag but unique as hell from my perspective. Worth a shot. Tastes as advertised.
