3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Murky amber pour with no head. The nose offers medium-roast malts, toasted oak and vanilla. I’m picking up no fruit here. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and Key West carbonation. The flavor is bready, fruity – peach, moreso than passionfruit or pomegranate – and moderately tart. Short, crisp, tangy finish. Bottle provided by 50belair!

750 ml bottle shared by NielsenRatings at RBWG grand Tasting. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had nice fruits, pomegranate, citrus, floral notes, earthy hops, wood, mild funk, nice tart character. Probably my favorite of the series.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in a Crooked Stave tulip. Nose is bright fruity notes with pomegranate and, to a greater degree, passion fruit. Light lavender in the background. Light and tart. Really drinkable. Took some restraint not to treat this one like a session beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle shared by NielsenRatings at the RBWG Grand Tasting - thanks again, A@ron! Pours a hazy gold, kind of on the dull end of the golden spectrum, with some loose bubbles for a head. Notes of lemon, herbs, pomegranate, lavender, passionfruit, wheat, dough, and white pepper. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, herbal, spicy mouthfeel. Awesome. My favorite of the WWB lineup, just above I and Y.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
If you want to smell & taste passion fruit, funk, barnyard, rose water, this is your beer. Not very complex, passion fruit all over the place. Aftertaste is rather weak. The problem I’ve got with this beer is pure marketing wise. Don’t call this beer Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Violet (WWBV). It should be Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Passionfruit (WWBP). Passion fruit dominates the palate. Violet, pomegranate & lavender are delicate flavours and are overpowered. The idea was sound; its execution faulty
