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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral perfume, light fruits, herbal notes. Flavor of herbal tea and light fruits up front followed by a very bready finish. The sweet agave is pretty faint here, doesn’t overpower the beer. Plenty of herbal/floral notes abound. Interesting and tasty saison. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Redstone Liquors, Stoneham. Appearance is clear, light brown/dark orange with good sparkle, finger-width off-white foamy head with fair retention and decent sudsy lacing. Aroma is lemon, candied sugar, peppery spice. Taste is as aroma though spiciness more forward than the sugary sweetness. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with slick, smooth texture, soft carbonation, and finish as taste. Overall, it is just as advertised and it is decent, but is a bit too sweet and strays pretty far from a standard saison.

bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2016
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, pear, lemongrass, pine, and caramel. Flavor of vanilla, lemongrass, agave, pepper, and bread.

Desverger (13727) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2015
[email protected] - fuzzy orange pours all white head. Aroma and taste is grassy and floral hoppy, some citrus fruits, lemon, straw, pretty sweet overall.

joergen (29624) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2015
Bottle at yespr. Hazy amber colored with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops and spices. Sweet and spicy flavor of caramel and herbs with perfumed notes. Sweet and fruity finish.

Borup (15943) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 18, 2015
66 cl. bottle @ Yespr. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, grass, citrus, spice and hops.

yespr (48931) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 18, 2015
22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is dry, herbal and pine hoppy. Mild soapy, teaish. Bitter, dry and solid hoppy into a slight bitter and fruity finish.

bubblehouse (1624) - 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 (1836) - 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.

edgallow (4634) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Draft sampler pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is pine sol , not a good batch.

AirForceHops (8037) - 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.
