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.

Bottle thanks to catman197. Pours a dirty red color with moderate white head. Some large bubbles. Nose of funk and fruit. Lots of light citrus. Pretty sharp. And 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.

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!

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

Bottle at RBWG grand tasting
Hazy golden with a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma and flavors are tart and floral, dry finish
Decent
