Day #236 – Dogfish Head Raison D Être

August 25, 2011

Day 4 of my week of hell continues. I’m beat. Straight to the review.

Dogfish Head Raison D Etre

This beer comes from Dogfish Head Brewing. This is one of their top selling beers but I don’t know if it’s their flagship or not. This is a Belgian Strong Ale at 8% brewed with raisins!

This beer pours a clear mix of orange, red and brown. Nice foamy head. It looks great in this glass.

The aroma is a mix of raisins, alcohol and woody notes. Some sweet notes of sugar as well.

Flavor is bitter sweet, wort, woody flavors and Belgian yeast. Slightly bitter on the finish.

  1. I love this beer!! The raisins and malt and high alcohol make it a warming and tasty brew. If you haven’t tried their Palo Santo Maron, it’s one of my favorite as well.

    On a side note – I want that glass! Did you buy it at the brewery?
