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.

PhillyCraft (6273) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
vtg blackberry log, Bottle with Annie baby in 2010, Pours orange with small to medium top. Aroma of banana bread, sugar, apples, dark grape and toasty hops. Body is medium to fuller. Pretty warming in the stomach/chest. Alright for what it is but they need to make sessionable hoppy beers instead of dumb, weird shit all the time.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is cloudy orange with huge amounts of sediment in suspension; 1/2 finger-width white fizzy head with poor retention, decent sparkle, minimal lacing. Aroma is sort of like a wine cooler--a cross between champagne and grape juice. Taste is similar to aroma--not as sweet as a full on Welchs grape juice but strong grape--some light spiciness, yeast, late grains. Palate is medium bodied with foamy texture, soft carbonation and dry grape finish. Overall, I always give kudos to Dogfish Head for pushing boundaries and Im sure I would have reached for this in a second 9,000 years ago, but today I have other options Id prefer.

AwaKe (257) - Laval, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
En bouteille. Belle blonde virant sur le ambre avec trs lgre mousse blanche. Un nez domin par le miel et les raisins, un peu de fruits rouges en finale. Au got encore une fois beaucoup de miel et un petit got qui sapparente un vin frouge ruit et rond, trs doux en bouche. Belle chaleur dalcool qui enrombe bien le palais. Malgr la prsence de riz le corps est assez rond. La finale nest pas amre, plutt malte, caramel. Overall cest dlicieux... la fois gouteux, complexe et rafraichissant.
