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.

With my Atl boyz. This beer kicked off (and I hate this word) an epic beer day. Five 4+ ratings came out. Nose is super funky, floral, complex, burnt rubber. Brett galore, funky, tart, dry, awesome, pomegranite, floral, fruity. Really nice and a hell of a kick starter.

Draft at Crooked Stave. Hazy light orange pour. Nose is tropical with some softness to it. Sour, but not overtly so. Really fun tropical fruit taste as well. Very very nice!!

mathieuc (1663) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a hazy golden with a weak head but still some lacing. Aroma is of flowers and red fruits, really nice and fragrant. Taste is juicy and acid (tart) and completely dry. Some nice grapefruit juice impressions. Pretty sure this is all lactic and citric, none of that acetic nonsense (never had an overly acetic Crooked Stave wild ale, more power to them!) Mouthfeel is lean, keeping it really drinkable. This was awesome with its perfumey and fruity interplay, I’d drink this again anytime!

cpetrone84 (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pour is a hazed golden amber with a bubbly off white head. Nose is light on brett, fairly balanced floral presence, juicy citrus and a nice aroma of leathery Brett and pineapple brett. Taste is much more sour than anticipated, hop presence isn’t really there, Brett is much stronger with pineapple and citrus. Floral notes are a touch lighter mid palate. Finish is sour and tart of pomegranate, very dry with strong carbonation and light airy body. Leathery brett lies through the middle and lingers through the finish. Good stuff.

Bottle generously shared by Nielsen at the RBWG grand tasting. There’s definitely some dryhopping going on in this bad boy. Nose punches you with citra-family hops and a brett dryness. Flavor is more simplistic of acidic lemon. Very nice.

On draught at 2013 Portland Fruit Beer Festival. Hazy deep golden color. Funky yeast and tart fruit aroma. Great tart farmhouse flavor with hints of passionfruit. Really satisfying and complex.
