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.

BeerdedDave (1853) - Beckley, USA - MAR 31, 2016
golden to light amber color; fruity aroma; fruity, spicy flavor; spicy up front with a grape aftertaste; a bit like a saison with grape notes; I might prefer it a bit less fruity

Bomber pours straw color with a nice wispy head. Smells of wine straight away, then honey. This is the Cerberus of beers: a three-headed giant hound - part beer, part wine, part something else - only not guarding the gates of the Underworld, but guarding everyone from a strict definition of beer. Overall, as a beer, it’s too winey, as a wine, it’s too beery, but as a newly formulated beverage it’s a pleasant creation.

Clear amber. Light body, mild flavor, high heat, spritzy, honeyed finish, avg length. Sweet, mildly, no bitterness. Flowery. Not much to say about it except that the concept is interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting beer and concept but not impressive in taste. A little thin due to the rice but a good warmth from the honey and a slight grape hinge.

Tap at WoB. Pours clear golden amber. Aroma is white grapes, pale malts, tropical and citrus fruit notes, and faint spice. Flavor is clean malt base, white wine notes, light fruit notes, and faint woodiness. Medium body.

beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2015
Totally unusual aroma in a golden pour. Taste is similarly exotic - but eminently drinkable. That may be an issue (given the strength).

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
Bière d’une couleur dorée et profonde surmontée d’une mousse riche et blanche comme neige. Le liquide est imposant. On sent une présence autoritaire et affirmée. Au nez, la bière révèle de puissants arômes d’alcool et de raisin appuyés sur une douce base maltée et mielleuse. En bouche, ces ingrédients se présentent à moi de la même façon accompagnés de citron. Bière très lourde et pesante en bouche, à l’effervescence et durée moyennes. Difficile à boire pour moi.

Pours a clear dark gold with heavy white sediment. A sweet citrus, light malt, pine, and honey. A very sweet taste of honey, pine, citrus, and alcohol. A lingering sweet taste.
