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.

Sample @ RBWG Asheville After Party. Gold pour with a small head. Lemony, some harvest fruits. Underarm. Taste is acetic. Lemon meat. Some sherbet, mild herb garden. Light body, soft carbonation. Simple, pleasing.

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.

hopscotch (10265) - 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!
