A rich fruit and amber ale with succulent Californian raisins. Choicest hops give depth, density and complexity.

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised. Copper colour with lasting head. Particularly sweet beer, way too much for me, but with a soft fruity autumnal feel about it. Peach apricot with a hint of grapejuice. Hard going over the full pint, but reasonable.

from the FÍte de la BiŤre 2005, Lausanne - slightly hazy amber coloured, little irregular foam, solid hoppy nose showing notes of honey, raisin and apple, the whole being supported by a strong aromatic hoppiness,; clean palate with a more than respectable bitterness, the finish end s dry with lingering notes of hops and honey

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011
Itís dark bronze with a creamy head, and after having become a little warmer, the notes appear more clearly. Both aroma and the sweet flavour has notes of malt, fruit and hints of raisin, and the finish is dry with hints of citrus and candy-sugar. Not as interesting as I hoped.

Discreet dry bitter ending. Palate on the sweet side. Medium to thin bodied (RateBeer table, CBF 08.05.2010).

Bottle. Sweet light raisin and barley malt aroma. Dark amber color with large head. Lightly sweet raisin, toffee malt and lightly bitter grassy hops. Medium body. Raisin beer didnít really sound like it was going to be very good but this surprised me - Very nice beer.
