Dogfish Head "Black & Blue"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Belgian-Style Golden Ale (ABV 10%) (IBU 25)

[Suggested Glassware: Flute]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear reddish peach with a huge (3-4 finger) pale pink fizzy head that dissipated rather quickly and produced some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet caramel malt and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of Blackberry, Blueberry and had a mellow wine presence.

The taste was sweetly acidic throughout with a strong berry presence and a nice bitter sourness along with a mild alcohol warming sensation towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long while with the bitter-sweet fruity taste mellowing as time went on.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a strong dry texture and a good strong lively carbonation.

Overall a very unique tasting brew, with just enough sweet and sour to mellow the harsh bitterness and allow for the fruity esters to prevail...
