COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Wild Brett Indigo is the sixth installment of the WWB series. WWB Indigo had blueberries added into the fermentation and during barrel aging. Known for their deep indigo color, the blueberries add a tart fruit aroma on top of the earthy Brettanomyces tropical fruit flavors.

Awesome flavor, but has that off undertone that makes the aging seem like a mistake other than souring it up. Great appearance. Harsh soured butter. Not feeling it. OK at best.

11/8/13. 750mL bottle shared by Cody. Thanks, bro! Indigo pour... [:39] Tart aroma, plenty of sour going on in the aroma - canít say I get much blueberry, but they donít really smell like anything unless sweetened in pancakes or muffins, right? Tame flavor, more watered down than expected, but still has fruity brett character, sweet tarts, pixie sticks (Iíd say of the purple variety - is that grape? Who knows, really). Not too sour - subtle. Nice.

emacgee (3954) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pretty murky ruby pour with two fingers of white head. Boss nose, estery and super fruity. Raw berry notes and very clean funky tart notes. Awesome flavor, beautiful berry and wild notes. Canít even describe....Floral, ethereal, delicate, peppery, and light.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 12, 2013
750ml bottle via trade. Pours clearish reddish amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of musty wet wood, brett, blueberry and citrus. Flavor is tart and sour up front with some light malt and fruitiness. Medium to light body with active carbonation. Nice beer but the blueberry character is very muted.

750mL. Pours beautiful full haze Pinkish orange. Medium white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is sort of raspberry popsicle, sweet strawberry and blackberry pie. More sweet and decadent than expected. Taste is tangy, tart, quite sour but no acetic acid. Lime juice. Soft, beautiful palate. Key lime, rhubarb pie. Loved.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Hazy rusty orange with a nice thick rocky head. Aroma is dark fruity with a heavy fermented fruit sourness, a bit of plum and dark pomegranate. Body falls a bit flat with no carbonation, but the flavor is strong with a little strong sour kick on the start, some dry oak tannins, and a robust sour yet dark fruity sweetness, with mostly some tones of blueberry, and pomegranate.
