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.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Tap @ Crooked Stave dry hopped with 366. Pours a murky bright orange appearance with a white head. Super musty, funky, barnyard bretty, passionfruit, herbal/floral hoppy aroma. Really very nice nose. Moderately tart, light berry, pomegranate, tropical fruity, very herbal floral flavor that dries out pretty nicely on the finish. Really nice stuff.

hopscotch (9388) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
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!

GT2 (8690) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach for Sour Fest. Pours a full haze glowing peach orange with minimal foam, no lace. Nose is extremely tropical passionfruit smoothie. Taste is lactic, clean, lemon/lime/citric with juicy passionfruit. Palate is thin, near watery, but quenching with mild sourness. Very drinkable and quenching. Loved this one.
Earlier Rating: 6/17/2013 Total Score: 4.3
Tap at Crooked Stave. Dry hopped with 366 experimental hops and passionfruit added into the barrel. Murky orange pour. Weaker white foam. Spotty lace. Nose is out of this world : fresh blood orange, pomegranate, juicy key lime, bright sour fruits, passionfruit smackdown. Taste is salty, key lime, sharp blood orange and tangerine. Zesty, super fresh body. Long, lactic, citric palate. Outstanding. 6/1/2013 9/4/8/5/17=4.3
