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.

Probably the sweetest beer I’ve ever had. Taste of berries is overwhelming and to me, the raspberry overpowered the blueberry (that’s not a criticism). The poster who said it tasted almost like wine is right on. Appearance is a deep copper with a thin head. What I love about the appearance is that my pour looked EXACTLY like the one the dude is holding on the label; thought that was pretty cool. Finish is a slight bitterness that transitions smoothly from and complements the tartness of the raspberry. This is a very drinkable beer that’s perfect for the summer. I just wish it was less than (a very well hidden) 10% abv so I could drink more of it!

Solid berry aroma. A red and blue body with a thin head that has a slight red tinge. Taste of raspberry tartness smoothed out by hint of blueberry. Dry, crisp and refreshing. Some Alcohol present

750ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2015.03.07. Pours a hazy purple dark amber colour with a finger or two white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Nose is yeasty/bread, blueberry, and blackberry jam. Flavour is moderately sweet, jam like berry flavours, and a yeasty bready feel. Considering the high abv this brew has it drinks very smooth. Tasty a fruit beer!

Bottle, pours hazy orange with small sized head. Seem a little flat Aromas and flavor are belgian fruit, candy sugar, blueberry, sweet malt, and vanilla bean. Medium to fuller bodied beer.

Bouteille avec une date illisible mais qui a environ un an. Robe cuivrée légèrement trouble avec plusieurs particules en suspension. Léger col de mousse blanc et laiteux. Arômes de confitures de bleuets, levures belges bien engraissées, pâtisseries, mûre, figues. En bouche, saveurs de bleuets, levures belges, sucre résiduel, petit côté citronné, mûre surette. Arrière-goût d’alcool un peu désagréable. Texture huileuse et juteuse, corps moyen. Taux d’alcool beaucoup trop élevé pour ce type de bière. Une chance qu’on était deux sur cette bouteille.

On tap. Pours a hazy red copper with a thin off-white head and decent lacing. Smells of berries and alcohol. Tastes a bit of aspirin, sweet, berry, citrus. Very juice-like. Surprisingly low alcohol in the taste. Minor bitterness and a lasting berry aftertaste.

Drank with Uncle Matt. Bought at Majestic in Flagstaff. I think it's a 2015 bottling, couldn't read the printed date well. Cloudy reddish brown pour with a light weak head. Aroma light malt and sweet berry... Blah, blah, blah...OK taste, slightly sweet, with a little fruity with a bitter twang. So just OK. At $14.99 25.4 oz bottle, not worth it. Matt said it wasn't bad, didn't like the "dirty" aftertaste.

Oohee!! Love this. Nice red color. Great flavor, tastes like a lambic. Almost some raspberry flavor. Good stuff.

Rich blueberry raspberry aroma. An opaque red and blue body with a thin head that has a reddish tinge. Taste has a raspberry tartness smoothed out by hint of blueberry. Dry crisp finish. Refreshing and rich. A hint of warmth is the only clue to the true strength of this brew.
