With a name like 'Enlightenment' a beer with an 'age of reason' type name was begging to be done. We decided to make this raisin infused beer based on a Belgian style because of the complexity that the yeast imparts to the beer.

In brewing this ale we added jumbo raisins from California [to our mind the best kind] to the brewing process, both before and after fermentation. We also used Aromatic malt from Gladfield in Canterbury and Abbey Malt, Belgian Special B, as well as CaraBelge malt from Europe.

The beer was fermented with a special Belgian yeast to impart spicy notes and then filtered and infused with even more raisins. The resulting beer yields aromas of clove, allspice and raisin, with malt undertones.

The deep copper beer has a complex, spicy – malty flavour with notes of biscuit, toast, raisin, allspice, and caramel with a lingering spicy hop finish.
