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.

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.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to the guy who brought this at the Hill Farmstead 3rd Anniversary bottle share. Copper with indigo/purple reflects, a good white head and some lacing. Aroma is of blueberries, earthy notes, tropical fruits, light vanilla, oak and funky notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with blueberries, tropical fruits, oak, funk, earthy notes, vanilla and grassy finish. Medium body. Slightly dry. Very good blueberry Sour Ale. Better than WWBR.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2013
backlogged rating: Poured a reddish golden hue with a hint of purple. The beer has notes of blueberry muffins, pale grains, oak, apricot, mango, hibiscus, vinegar and light funk. The taste follows suit which made me very happy, fresh blueberry working with the hop fruitiness over the layers of grains and wood. Wonderfully tart and refreshing, this is so fr the one Crooked Stave beer I would want again and again.

Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - Pours rosy amber with a soapy white head. Nose is light vinegar tartness, berry fruitiness, and a lightly sweet malt base. Taste is real berries, lots of fruitiness, a bit of dry yeastiness, chalkiness, and some light vinegar tartness. Real light and carbonated.

Big ups to main man Jeff! Very nice copper pour with faintest purple/blue tints and a vibrant, prickly carbonation. Very tart berry in the nose, that fresh and pert young blueberry aroma with fairly sharp wood and funk. Lively mouthfeel, just the right degree of acetic mouthfeel. Taste is crisp, even a bit hoppy in places, and seems just a bit muted compared to the complex nose. Very enjoyable, though: lively, funky, and dry.
