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.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2006
Bottled. Cloudy very pale coloured. Almost rotten fruits in the aroma. Strange and unpleasant sweet flavour of foie gras. Light bodied. Bad.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Bottle - very sweet aroma. Definitely that of honey and grape. Cloudy gold with a hint of orange. Very grapey flavor and highly sweet. In the words of my friend Roger (potable) ... "a chick beer".

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy, very pale yellow with a small whitish head. Not an appetizing looking beer. Aroma is mild, with honey and vanilla. Flavor is rather nice, though mild. I tasted honey primarily with some vanilla and citrus fruit. A decent beer, but not worth seeking out.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Tasted at DFH/Avery dinner. Cloudy golden with big head. Smells like a chardonay. Tastes like sweet wine with a really wheaty finish. Tasty.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Pours a hazy pumpkin colored body and a small white burble of head. There are some odd foreign objects hovering around in the glass; they kind of look like small grains of rice. The aroma is wonderful! Apricots, honey, papaya, plums, peach, juicy red apples…The flavor presents all the above mentionables but with a very different yeast profile than I am use to from DFH. Maybe it is the dynamic of the beer itself that is throwing me off… Nevertheless, I am finding Chateau a much needed surprise from one of Americas most adventurous breweries!

PorterPounder (7112) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Tallahassee, Fl,. Market Square Liquors - 750 ml bottle. Nectary, hazy, honey like pour - tight, white ringing head stays throughout. Aroma reminds me of muscadine grapes with somne honey on the side. Flavor has the same winey essence to it, some alcohol booziness seeps through. Hints of unidentifiable fruit - must be ’hawthorne’ as the label indicates. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Very different and somewhat enjoyable. - meant for sipping.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2006
The aroma is very malty, yeasty, and fruity. The appearance is deep hazy gold with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma and is super malty and fruity. The palate is thick and smooth. This is a great beer!

Palidor19 (3145) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2006
A very nice surprise in the same vein as the midas touch. The taste reminds me of a nice sherry. its smooth fruity malts and the complex tastes of honey, sweet spices and tropical fruits. I really love this beer

Aurelius (5006) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Hazy, toasted brown-gold, stellar label, thin head. Yeasty, stone fruit, winey aroma. Tart, the bitterness wasn’t entirely pleasant, somewhat homebrew-ish. Pretty sweet. Finishes off
