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.

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.

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.

Tried this several months before the bottle release at Ernie’s Pizza. . It is a hazy orange gold with a very subtle violet tint. Solid carbonation. I believe they brewed this a while ago, but I doubt the brett has fully ’done it’s thing’ on this yet. Nose was mostly passionfruit and some lemon citrus. Taste followed with a nice tart finish of strawberry guava and earthy brett. My immediate thought was of the Jolly Pumpkin Sobre Humano...very similar.
Earlier Rating: 5/20/2013 Total Score: 3.9
Updating rating-didn’t realize my first rating was of the passionfruit aged version. On tap yesterday (5/19/13) at the release party. Much the same as passionfruit version, but the tartness is a bit more rounded than I recall. Really tasty and unique and again very even-handed as I have come to expect from these guys.

Bottle (750 ml). From Scott, thanks! Clear bright golden/orange with a small/medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is of lavender, brettanomyces, red fruits and nice tartness. Taste is fruit oriented (red fruits) with lavender/floral notes, brettanomyces, nice tartness and a lactic presence. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Fruity and amazingly drinkable/thirst quenching.

Yellow/Orange pour with white head and lace. Aroma is sour crazy fruitiness. Sour acidic taste that ends in the sour crazy it started with. Very dry but ok
