Crooked Stave "Wild Wild Brett Blue" (W.W.B.B.)
Crooked Stave - Denver, Colorado USA
American Wild Ale (ABV 7.3%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]


Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a thick dark black with a large (2-3 finger) beige head that had great retention, pretty much lasting throughout with excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was up front with a nice dose of spruce and pine hops, that along with an earthy Brett yeast, dark grain malts and notes of chocolate, toffee and a nice touch of berries.

The taste was a little sweetly tart with a chocolate and toffee presence at first, and then progressed with a mild piney hop flavor, a bit of fruitiness and just a touch of spruce at the end. The flavor stuck around for an average duration after the swallow with a with a nice hoppy tartness left to settle in on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a very unique brew to say the least, but then again all of the beer brewed by this brewer usually is. This one balances hops, Brett yeast and a mild fruitiness superbly, making it a very enjoyable drinking experience...
