Dogfish Head Black & Blue


Due to a somewhat recalcitrant AC unit, despite the fact that I’m writing this well into the evening my office is at a fairly  toasty 86.4 degrees Fahrenheit  so I’m in need of refreshment.   What I’ve found in the fridge is a bomber of Dogfish Head Black & Blue, which should hit the spot.  Black & Blue is a Belgian Golden Ale brewed with blackberry and blueberry puree.  It’s a beautiful red copper color in the glass, with a full, frothy light head.  The nose is Belgian yeast and the middle is sour fruit: raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, some orange and cherry, that fades to a heavy, sweet malty finish.  This is predominantly a sour beer, with some strong sweetness, and no bitterness that I detect.   If you like sour fruit based beers, this is a good one from Dogfish Head, and I have to say, I’m definitely feeling refreshed.

I give it a 4.4 out of 5.
