Beer Wednesday – Dogfish Head Raison d’Etre
Happy Beer Wednesday!
This week I’m thrilled to review another Dogfish Head beer. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a vegan beer by this Delaware brewery, and I’ve got a few bottles of their brown ale brewed with raisins; Raison d’Etre, or their “reason for being.”
First, you’ve got to know that I don’t always love brown ales. I tend to find them too malty, too sweet, and not hoppy enough by half. This brown ale stayed true to form, as it was a little too sweet for me, and the balance always seems just a tad off.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s tasty, and at 8% ABV, it packs quite a punch, but I probably couldn’t drink more than one or two of them.
This vegan beer by Dogfish Head is a pretty good example of a brown ale, but I just can’t get into it. Because of that, and not really any other reason, I’m giving this beer a 3/6 on my 6-pack scale.
Do you agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments.
