One of the most interesting beers I've ever had through and through. Being Middle Easter, this is right up my alley. 55 year old parents loved it too!
Chamomile, za'atar and doum fruit are perfectly intertwined into this awesome, (but a tad pricey), session ale.

To pay $11.99 for a 25.4oz bottle of this beer you should know what you are getting into and appreciate all the work that went into making this beer as authentic as possible.
Serving method: 25.4oz bottle poured into a snifter.
A: A light golden color with a thin head,
S: Light floral aroma, chamomile, bready sweetness, slightly earthy
T: Chamomile, honey, biscuits, bready sweetness, mild spices (not quite cinnamon, but very similar). A fair amount of carbonation. Quite similar to a hefeweizen at the front of the mouth but finishes completely different. At the back of the mouth and in the aftertaste a sweet bread overtakes you. Overall very balanced and enjoyable, especially considering all the authentic ingredients and the effort to make this like it was made thousands of years ago. Sweet bready aftertaste is not overpowering, the beer overall is not that sweet so the sweet flavors are all very light. It tastes simple and natural, with unique ingredients and therefore a unique end result.
M: Medium body, kind of rough, not smooth like nitro beers. Feels thicker/heavier than the ABV would suggest. Very drinkable but not watery or thin.
O: This is an excellent beer taking into account the purpose, not just randomly tasting a bunch of beers. Thinking of it as a liquid time capsule allows me to appreciate it to the fullest extent. With no offensive flavors or smell, and a light drinkable body, I am quite pleased with this brew. It has unique flavors I have not experienced before and is quite enjoyable. Instead of "Walk Like an Egyptian" you can now "Drink Like An Egyptian". Perhaps Dogfish should have used that line on the bottle :)

From the 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on May 23, 2014.
The pour is a virtually headless pale yellow to golden tone. A little cloudiness but it could be a chill haze.
Check out all those Middle Eastern spices and fruits on the nose. They tell us it has Zatar and Chamomile and it does. I also get maybe some curry and allspice. And there are pale malts in the mix too.
Light to medium body.
All those exotic spices and fruits I mentioned are evident in the taste more so than the toasted malts and crisp, clean but mellow hops at the end. I felt like watching "Ben Hur" after drinking this.

I like this beer--quite a bit, actually. But it's not your average beer.
I love the whole Ancient Ales line from Dogfish Head because I'm really interested in ancient cuisines.
This one is strange. it's thin and herbal. It's like an alcohol-infused carbonated tea with a turmeric-like spice suspended in it. It's not quite a beer which I like very much--but I also definitely knew what I was getting myself into when I picked up this bottle. I was expecting something a little chalky, a little herbal, and quite funky. I will remember it well but won't drink it more than once every couple of years I think.
