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

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2008
Bronze with white halo. Needs some agitation to be roused into any kind of head, and it dies fairly instantly. Smells promising (once it’s de-chilled), with brazen caramel, vanilla pod, creaky tun, chewy raisin, very subtle Goldings-like mustiness creeping up in the background. Flavours of rum-sodden barrel, gnawed pencil, candle wax, caramel, walnut, stale paperiness, butter cookie. What happened to the raisins?

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2009
Appearance: Reddish amber in colour, with a creamy head of fine bubbles. Lightly carbonated. Aroma: Sugary malts, with a strong spiciness, possibly cinnamon. The smell of dark fruits is clear, led by raisins. Slightly metallic. There is also a dusty smell, like an old room...yeah, weird, huh? Taste: The flavours are fruity, supported by the strong raisin and grape tastes. There is a mellow sweetness that persists through to the end, which is characterised by subtle fruit sugars, and a faint honey. Mouthfeel: The body is on the heavy side of medium. Quite clingy feel, but smooth texture. Drinkability: This beer seems to evoke a love or hate response, manly due to its irregular flavours. I come down more on the ’love’ side but this is due to the taste. The aromas are not great, and had me expecting something terrible from the taste but I was pleasantly surprised by the rich fruity malts and gentle sweetness. An unusual beer but a good one; try it!

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle of 50 cl. Amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel and small hints of raisin. Flavor with notes of caramel and raisin fruit but felt not. Dry mouth feel and a nice hop bitterness in the end

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2006
500ml Bottle. Clear pale cola/ light tawny, looking body with not much head at all. Flat tasting, thin body, gritty dried fruit and maple syrup taste nothing flash but I drank it. Slightly harsh malts that I associate with scotch ales.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2006
Clear deep golden beer that pours virtually flat and within seconds the white head vanishes. Aroma is hoppy and sweet and the flavour is dry with a deffinate raisiny finish.
