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: AUG 31, 2013 Bottle tried with friends during philly beer week 13. Sour diesel aroma, florals, fuel, and passionfruit. Taste is tart fruit, lemons, peach, flowers, pomegranate funk, ocean and rich brett profile. Light to medium carbonation with lots of sour tartness. Epic beer.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has a ton of lavender, violet and other floral notes as well as some oranges. The flavor is also great. I get a ton of lavender character, as well as some light tartness and a hint of brett. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Easy to drink and delicious.

In short: A tart, fruity, floral and slightly funky orange beer. Original, tasty, refreshing. Lovely.
How: Bottle 750ml, shared at post-HF FoFA 2013.
The look: Cloudy pale orange body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is mostly very fruity with all kinds of exotic fruits along with a mild scented flowery component and only light funky and oaky notes. In mouth the beer offers a medium body, crisp texture, plenty of carbonation. Taste is again dominantly fruity. Exotic fruits, pomegranate, tart lemons, flowers, some bright and clean funk. An assertive tartness with bright flavors that makes the beer very refreshing. Very harmonious flavors. I really liked this one, my favorite of all the Crooked Stave Wild Wild Brett Ive had so far. Id drink this beer on a regular basis, too bad it is as rare as a dance club hit song about the happiness of a 14th of marriage.

(750ml bottle) cloudy medium gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of lavender, passionfruit, dry aged hops, hay, wildflowers, super complex. Taste of lavender, brett, honey, passionfruit, medium tartness, guava, so deliciously balanced and complex. Excellent.

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

750ml bottle shared by jmborggren. Thanks! Unfiltered chunky golden yellow tan. Sour lemon lime tones. Boldly sour, intense US Sour action. Apricot, plum, pear, lemon, fruity tones. Not overboard, has a nice quaffable palate. Has some nice depth with the 7% alcohol, a nice edge.

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.
