COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black & Blue is golden Belgian Ale made with over 300 lbs of fresh blackberries and blueberries. With a deep purple full body and a long-lasting lacy pink head, this ale is both attractive and delicious! It is tart and fruity, like our brewers! The subtle bitterness of Hallertau and Saaz hops shines through the fruit forward flavor and sets the palate aglow. (30 IBUs). This tasty brew has smooth but noticeable alcohol warmth. Belgian yeast gives this brew a characteristically dry spicy finish. The beautiful interplay of fruit, spice, and alcohol is complimented by a soft malt profile, and a high level of carbonation.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thick beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and malt - quite simple. The flavor is sweet malty again with strong notes of alcohol, and some light berry notes. Too strong on the alcohol and too simple - for me.
