Beer Review: Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre


Beer: Raison D’Etre

Comments:  This beer has a great punny name, but is a cute name enough to make a good beer?  It looks good colorwise, a deep reddish-brown although the head was thin and the carbonation was made up of some large bubbles instead of a gentle effervescence.   It has a fruity, caramel taste with an aftertaste a bit too bitter for my liking.  The thin head all but disappeared after a few sips. It also backs an alcholic wallop.   So, my judgement is that it’s a decent beer, but probably not one that’s going to give you a reason for being.

  1. What I find interesting is this is Jess’s favorite beer. She loves it. I, however, agree with you. It’s too bitter for my liking and the taste, well, that too doesn’t agree with me. I’d give it 4.5 out of 10.
