Made with kamut grain from Egypt and flavored with ginger and myrrh, this is an interesting beer that's best served not too cold to allow those earthy, subtle spices to shine. A hazy orange-amber color, with a low head that falls fast, it's all spiced citrus and sweet malt upfront, with a distinct white-flower accent. The medium-weight palate offers more of the same, with waves of ginger-spiced orange, lemon peel, orange blossom and biscuit that flood the mouth. The texture is smooth and creamy, with low carbonation and a rich, spicy finish that boasts great length and strength. It's well balanced and layered, somehow simultaneously exhibiting concentration and elegance throughout. B. United International, Inc.
