COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The great Bill Monroe described his bluegrass music as “Scottish bagpipes and ole-time fiddlin’. It’s Methodist and Holiness and Baptist. It’s blues and jazz, and it has a high lonesome sound.” Our Black & Blue Grass begs to concur. Belgian yeast and stateside Saison spicing; black pepper and blue agave and lemongrass, and a great bet alongside any food you have around. Or, just enjoy a bomber of Black & Blue Grass as you watch the springtime ponies run.

bubblehouse (745) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2015
Seems really flat. Barely any aroma and lacking in taste. NABC makes good beer but this one missed the mark for me.

Rustyham (1786) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Great aroma of sweet agave. Flavor is crisp lemongrass with the subtle black pepper balancing it out nicely. Medicinal, but good, like an old fashioned lozenge. A little too light, though.

AirForceHops (4389) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Nice price on this 22 oz. bottle, $8.45 at Leary’s Fine Wine. Hazy orange color with a thin ring of head around the snifter. Aroma is oranges, dusty wheat and spice.

The flavor is mirror image of the aroma with the lemongrass being a main player. Light lingering herbal spices. Hard to get agave but the balance of spice and wheat is nice. Medium body with a low bitterness. Good not great, worth a try if you want something a tad different in this broad style.
