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.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of spices - corinander being the strongest. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of spices - I pick up coriander. I find it lacking a bit of character - but 9000 years ago I probably would have loved it.

(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a very unclear golden with a small, off-white head. Spicy, pop-like aroma. Medium body with sweetish, fruity, lightly floral accents - reminds me of some fancy designer pop. Very subdued bitterness. Well.... 011206

Bottled@my birthdaybash@Chriso. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, mild maize and ricelike sweetness, some yeast as well as quite herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar ending in a rather fruity and honeylike sweetness. Not overly sweet though. Interesting and pleasant.

Bottled at oh6gdx’s birthday bash at chriso’s. Clear golden, small head. Fruity glue aroma. Super sweet with loads of sugar and not all that much else, perhaps some honey and artificial sweetener. I am glad to report that brewing has progressed since the stone age...
