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.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Rated on 11-14-12 at 800 Degrees Three Fires. Poured a small ivory head that mostly diminished, very little lacing, transparent body, very little visible carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aroma is yeasty, spicy, floral, and some hints of perfume. The Flavor is semi-sweet, lemony, mildly spicy, and some tastes of yeast. The Mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied Saison. Overall, this is a quaffable Saison, worth a try and a beer that I would drink again.

Draft at the source. Clear gold, white head. Aroma of fruity citrus. Taste is peppermint candy, grass, oil of wintergreen. Unique.

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Deep golden body approaching amber. Fizzy, white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, pepper, alcohol, spicy hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Some acidic tartness in the finish. A watery, flavorless start turns into a spice and pepper finish. Clean and dry, but not a lot going on in this beer.

b3shine (5587) - Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Draft to taster at the brewhouse. Looks solid; a transparent light burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells solid; doughy and spicy. Tastes like it smells, but less complex. Average on the palate. Alright.

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2012
tap at Brewhaven festival - Gold pour with a very mild citrus and spicy yeast aroma. It’s mild to moderately bitter, a lightly spiced brew with a somewhat dry finish. It’s a fairly good brew, but doesn’t really rise above average.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2012
22oz bottle from Louisville Beer Store in Louisville, KY. Pours a mostly clear, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is flowery with soft agave giving off just a light sweetness, lemon-grass, and pepper as advertised. Clean pils malts with a bit of a doughiness and a light yeast spice. Flavor is similar. Very floral up front with a nice black pepper note and a light lemon-grass. Touches of yeasty spice in the middle with a clean, somewhat grainy and doughy pils maltiness. Light agave note towards the end that helps this dry cleanly with a lightly spiced bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Simple, clean pils malts with a pleasant flowery quality throughout as well as a light black pepper and lemon-grass. Enjoyable.

22 oz bottle, not a ton of carbonation left, though it wasn’t flat. Poured an opaque orange-brown. Smelled almost-flowery, maybe some rose in the scent. Flavor was very sweet and nearly syrupy, had a very thick mouthfeel with a bit of the flower flavor as well. I don’t know where I got the flower from. Enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a half inch off-white head that didn’t stay around for too long. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like honey/blue agave, lemongrass, citrus, apples and some peppery spice. The brew tastes like honey/blue agave, peppercorns, lemongrass and some citrus. I liked the taste of this brew more and more the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and smooth with low carbonation. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it.
