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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2012
750 ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that dissipated quickly, down to a scattered layer of residue with a very small collar which produced not so good runny lacing. The aroma had a bold tartness right up front with a grain malt and a musty Brett yeast along with notes of blueberry, cherries, yogurt and a bit of oak cask. The taste was sweetly tart and rather fruity throughout, progressing with a bold sourness, a hint of oak cask and a somewhat light berry presence at the end. The flavor was gone way to fast after the swallow for such a tasty brew, basically fading very quickly from the taste buds leaving almost nothing behind. Mouthfeel was just past light in body and dry in texture with a strong ticklish carbonation. Overall this was a fantastic tasting brew with a very smooth and easy drinkability, what can I say this brewer did it again...

Boutip (5950) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light purple/yellowish color ale with a nice large bubbly head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart and funky ester with light berry notes is quite pleasant and complex. Taste is also dominated by tart and funky notes with some light blueberry notes. Light oak notes are also noticeable with light and well balanced acidity. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Better than expected with quite a bit of complexity and good drinkability.

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a hazy gold thin white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of nice brett funky notes over sour citrus. Taste follows, awesome funky lactic sweetness. Nothing too over the top, would love to try this one again.
