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.

A - Insanely cloudy. Ruby red 3 finger fluffy reddish head. Faded to almost nothing

S - Nose is all blueberry. A hint of vinegar but not much.

T - Taste is insanely fruity. Lovely blueberry tastes. Lemon peel and grape skins. Very little vinegar to taste.

WOW

via Bottle # 1150 of 1500

A - 3 finger slightly off white head. Slightly cloudy muted purple appearance. Looks like a lighter blueberry tint of every other blueberry sour I’ve had.

S - More Blueberry than I experienced on tap..probably just the glass. Still a lot of grape skins and more vinegar.

T - Vinegar taste, grape skins and blueberry tartness.

M - Medium carbonation, light body. Very lingering in the fruitiness

O - Bottle is superior to tap on this one. Bottle conditioning? Probably

Nose: almost a Drie Fontienen-esque lambic character to it with just the right amount of blue fruit, not overpowering. Palate: fantastic balance of brett, blueberry, mango funk, with a bright tart finish. Overall: Beautiful expression of a fruit brett beer. LOVE IT!

Served in Crooked Stave stemware. Pours a nice light pinkish color with a nice head and a bit of lacing. The nose is really excellent with notes of blueberry and earth. Funk in the background. Really excellent. Flavor doesn’t disappoint either. Really enjoyed the combination of the Brett and blueberry character with just a bit of backing acidity. Light body; extremely drinkable.

Blueberries are the best fruit flavor in beer. Pours a amber/blue hue with one finger of white foamy head. Aroma is heavy blueberry, nice earthy basementy brett and a tint of vanilla sweetness. Taste is medium tart and a light sweetness that is cleaned up dry in the finish with tons of fruit flavor and wild yeast. GREAT

Lukaduke (2067) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a grapey blue color with hints of rust on the edges... finger or two of eggshell foam that settles quickly. Aromas are bright, blueberry, oak, earthy funk and a touch of pineapple... On the palate its bright with some wild blueberry acidity mingling nicely with some funky oak tartness that tones the touch of berry sweetness down to a refreshing quenching level. Beautifully balanced and a pure pure pleasure to drink !

750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Bottled 7/12, #378/1516. Pours a murky salmon color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of blueberry, bretty funk, lemon, oak, and citric acid. Flavor is the same. Big lemon and blueberry character, love the way that works together. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart mouthfeel. This is fantastic.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 On tap at the barrel room. Pour is pinkish-brown with a huge, two-finger white head. Blueberries, raspberries, light funk, tannin, tang, and wood in the aroma. Taste is tart berries, grape tannin, wood, raspberry soda, light spice, funk, and a touch of brett with a moderately sour finish. Really refreshing. Medium body with soft carbonation. Tangy, fruity, tart, yet easy to drink; like berry soda. Really nice and maybe the best of the WWB series.
