Fresh fruits shine through with vibrant exuberance!
Known for meticulously recreating ancient brews as well as concocting unique styles of their own, Dogfish Head puts their spin on this strong Belgian-style ale. Ripe blackberries and blueberries are everywhere, lending color, aroma, and flavor to this rare and fleeting gem that only occasionally makes an appearance in the brewery’s repertoire. The spicy esters of Belgian yeast mesh with the fruit in the aroma as it floats from this hazy plum-colored ale. The first sip offers up pleasant berry tartness, with light malt washing over the back of the tongue. The Belgian character appears after a few sips as the beer warms ever so slightly, revealing the depth and complexity of Black & Blue. The finish is medium-dry and fruity, making Black & Blue perfect on a warm summer’s day.
Serve in a snifter or flute at 40-45 F.
Suggested Food Pairings: Homemade plantain chips, Pulled Pork Sliders, and chocolate desserts pair effortlessly with the fruit-forward flavor of Black & Blue.
