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.

750ml bottle, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks! Split with my bride. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, papaya, mango, freshly bloomed flowers. Light to medium on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, citrusy, grapefruit, but not in the normal hoppy way, more flowers, with a light, tart finish. Excellent.

toxichop (598) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Tap on Beachwood: P: Deep murky orange with no light to penatrate and no head. S: A nice presence of tropical fruits, pomegrante, floral flowers, and berries that take over the smell. T: Damn and awsome sourness and tartness too it. Tons of berries and pomegrante that go both sour and semi-sweet. Stone fruits, maybe hint of raw honey and lime. M: Mediumb body with light carbonation, the beer finishes dry specially as it warms up. O: Very nice.

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!

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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
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 I’ve had so far. I’d 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.

Another great sour from CS. Pours a nice ruby brown color. Aroma is flowers and berries and some very light funk. Taste is high tartness without much vinegar. a little vinous and oaky with jammy fruits.

750 ml bottle shared by NielsenRatings at RBWG grand Tasting. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had nice fruits, pomegranate, citrus, floral notes, earthy hops, wood, mild funk, nice tart character. Probably my favorite of the series.

Golden color. Very herbal, floral aroma, juniper. Dry and tart, kind of cherry note, passingfruit, wine like. I can’t pick out the particular infusions but it is clearly more floral leaning than batch 60. Love it.
