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.

PorterPounder (7730) - 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.

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!

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 (5202) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Hazy, toasted brown-gold, stellar label, thin head. Yeasty, stone fruit, winey aroma. Tart, the bitterness wasnt entirely pleasant, somewhat homebrew-ish. Pretty sweet. Finishes off

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Aroma was like a malt liquor. Very malty, and sort of sour smelling. Flavor was malty, bitter grape, earth. Interesting, but not great. As usual I give DFH props for always trying something different.

Pours a murky orange, with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of dry white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc. Flavors of berries, white grapes, and all kinds of light fruits, as well as honey. Smooth medium body, dry finish. This is very different. I like it but I dont love it. Still, I get a kick out of trying these crazy concoctions Dogfish Head comes up with, even if I dont love the result.

11/16/06: Bottle.
Golden sunshine body and a bit cloudy. Lacing is somewhat thick, off white in color. Champagne-like bouquet. Taste resembles champagne. Flavors include fruit (apple, green grape), yeast and honey. Fairly dry finish.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Pours a nice cloudy golden hue with a head only large enough to say "I have a head." Smells strong and wonderful, very complex. Some apples, pears, honey; very herbal. Taste is pretty sweet, but not absurdly so, honey and molasses-like. Gets a bit tangier as the fruit and flowery flavors kick in. Yeast is noticable in the second and cloudier glass, which drys out the finish, rounds out the fruity flavors, and enhances the beers texture. Its bit meadlike and has a number of similarities to Midas Touch, but this is more complex. Medium body to this, in my opinion. I found this to be pretty good and I have a hard time wondering why its rated lower than Midas Touch.

Had a taste of this at a local bottle shop. Had a deep straw yellow color with a almost non existent whispy white head. Honey smell, but also yeasty. Taste was overpowering, yeasty, fruity and thick. Thick in the mouth and honestly, a little tough to drink. I was unimpressed and I doubt someone could drink an entire 750ml bottle of this, which is how its packaged.

A bright apple, papaya, melon, aroma, and you can really smell the honey, taste comes out apple, honey with a grape and papya aftertaste, initialy sweet but it drys out quickly, Pleasant enough, but the mix doesnt completely blend, almost like your buddies wopatouie
