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

Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, and caramel, as well as just a hint of raisins. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops, as well as medium notes of malt, and light notes of raisin, which increase a bit in strength towards the end, leaidng to a bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Light amber color out of the bottle with a thin white head. Fruity raisin and apple nose with some malty sweetness. The flavor has the malty sweetness along with plenty of dried fruits, raisins and apples. There is a greenish hop finish. Interesting fruit beer. Thanks to Secret Santa for this bottle.

Bottle. Deep golden to copper colour, moderate white head. Fruity aroma with distinct notes of raisins and grape juice. The flavour is a fairly nice blend of malts and raisins, not too sweet, with moderate hops in the finish and aftertaste.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle from Bargain Booze. Pours amber with a very fine white head. An amber ale with a grape/raisin aftertaste that is not strong. Over carbonated in my opinion.

POLK (2219) - Hřrning, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
light brown ale brewed with raisins. There is not much raisin taste which is perhaps fortunate enough. There is a slightly bitter fruit flavor which perhaps comes from the raisins. Very bad head. it would be interesting to know how much raisin is actually used to make beer. interesting ale.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Deep dark copper colour with a slightly soapy somewhat lasting white thin head. Smells of bitter malt, grape Crush and hops. Slightly chemically.. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet caramel malt start and a bittersweet fuity finish. Tastes like someone poured grape Crush into by bitter. Lightly toasted with sweet rasin. Smooth but a little heavy.

A sweet smooth beer with a smooth malty finish that has something going on that maybe raisins! But it’s very subtle!
