Here is what the Brewer says:
A deep, mahogany Belgian-style brown ale brewed with beet sugar, raisins, and Belgian-style yeast.
We began brewing this one at our brewpub in 1996 (we began packaging and selling it sometime in 1998) as the answer to the question, "What beer should I enjoy with a wood-grilled steak?" Raison D'Etre fits the bill, tasty and as complex as a fine, red wine.
