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.

Bottle, 75cl. A finger-thick, dense, off-white head forms over an unclear, orange-golden body. There’s some berry notes in the else fruity and lightly funky aroma. Berries, lemon notes, fruityness and some funk and sourness in the flavor. Some tropical fruit hints. Dry and quite carbonated. Tropical fruits and berries in the finish. A nice one indeed, lacking a bit on complexity. 130216

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a cloudy opaque amber with a small off-white head. Interesting lightly sweet berry character with a whiff of Brett. Rather light in body, subtle berry notes, a discreet tartness. Very subtle throughout. 160213

Bottle @ The 4th Annual Fastelavns-Smagning Ulfborg, 2013. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Bretty and fruity. A bit of funk and barnyard. Where is the complexity?

A solid one in the series. This one could use a bigger kick of the blueberry, still very bretty and tasty.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Sample shared at Central Waters anniversary party. Hazy orangish pour. Nose is tart blueberry muffin, slightly floral/citrus. Flavor is initially lightly tart blueberry, but gives way to the dry, leathery brett funk and blueberry skins. Fairly light and dry.

750 ml bottle from adnielsen. Thanks, dude! Pours a richer hazy copper orange hue, almost murky with cakey whitish head. Stays as a firm layer and laces well. Darker body overall. Aromas scream lemon, citrus, funky brett, big bold blueberry skin and tannins. Gentle bready and grainy malts, some straw. Firm bretty funk, cobwebs, dust, blueberry fruit. Tartness, blueberry fruit, nice sour kick. Initial is medium bodied, some nice blueberry fruit, skin. Tartness, decent sour mild kick with firm bretty funk, muffin, yogurt into the middle. Gentle spice, dry funky brett with blueberries, lemon, and tartness. Tartness hits the middle, sourness, lemons, yogurt and blueberry really play well. Backend is funky, dry, gentle fruit and berryskin tannins. Finish is dry, tart, a bit lactic and bretty. Really enjoy this. Mellow sourness, good fruit and blueberry skin, firm bretty flavors. Firm bretty, mellow dough and straw. Pretty nice damn beer. Probably my favorite WWB from the ROYGBIV series thus far.. Let’s see where Violet takes us..
