Sam gave me this rare bottle. It is a special bottling for Ralph Lauren, the designer. It is basically Raison d'Etre but uses muscavando sugar rather than raisins. The bottle describes itself as "a farmhouse style brown ale".

It is wax sealed, vintage dated and says that it improve with age. I tried it very fresh and found it very sweet and syrupy. If you like Raisin d'Etre, you'll love this. Me, I should have laid it down for a few years. Live and learn.
