COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Similar to a beer brewed in China some 9,000 years ago, Chateau Jiahu used a recipe that included rice, honey, and grape and hawthorn fruits. The formula was obtained from archaeologists who derived it from the residues of pottery jars found in the late Stone Age village of Jiahu in northern China. The residues are the earliest direct evidence of brewed beverages in ancient China.

Bottle from the source - pours clear, dark orange. It’s solid but funky in a non-barnyard way.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2013 Clear orange pour some head. Smells of cinnamon, tart dry fruit goji berries, grapes and honey. Taste is pretty ridiculously sweet and honeyed. This is definitely halfway to mead with slight grapey flavors. A slight bitterness out of nowhere with some medicinal flavors. It hides the strong alcohol well and has some dryness to the finish. Also comes with a pleasing silky mouthfeel with assertive bubbles.

This was a 2011 bottle I aged for two years was quite delicious cloudy on the view but somewhat sweet almost honey. Another great offering from the dogfish guys

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a mostly transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells mildly sweet with light skunkiness and fruitiness. Tastes like it smells, only better and more fruity. Good on the palate. An interesting brew.

Nice light pour, very sweet. Honey and maybe bread taste throughout. Very light, complex in its own way. Not good not bad, average.

Warped_Silver (62) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Pours golden with 2 finger head that lingers. Smell of grapes and spice. The taste starts sweet and ends sweet. Way too sweet. Similar profile to Midas touch but more syrupy. Not my favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not 1 of my favorite DFH’s but it’s still pretty good! Quite hoppy but has a creamy mouthfeel. Phenomenal by most standards but just not quite my style.
