COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like all of the Wild Wild Brett Series, Violet is a 100% Brettanomyces beer. Violet was brewed with pomegranate and lavender and fermented on whole fruit passion fruit. After fermentation Violet was then dry-hopped with an experimental hop (Ex. 366) that we received from our growers.

Admin Note: Aging on "Extra Passionfruit" and dry hopping (an already dry hopped beer) does not necessitate a new entry.

Golden color. Very herbal, floral aroma, juniper. Dry and tart, kind of cherry note, passingfruit, wine like. I can’t pick out the particular infusions but it is clearly more floral leaning than batch 60. Love it.
