Crooked Stave "Wild Wild Brett Indigo" (W.W.B.I.)
Crooked Stave - Denver, Colorado USA
Wild Ale (ABV 7%)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]


Rating: 3.8/5.0

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

The pour was a hazy dark burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that dissipated quickly, down to a scattered layer of residue with a very small collar which produced not so good runny lacing.

The aroma had a bold tartness right up front with a grain malt and a musty Brett yeast along with notes of blueberry, cherries, yogurt and a bit of oak cask.

The taste was sweetly tart and rather fruity throughout, progressing with a bold sourness, a hint of oak cask and a somewhat light berry presence at the end. The flavor was gone way to fast after the swallow for such a tasty brew, basically fading very quickly from the taste buds leaving almost nothing behind.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and dry in texture with a strong ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a fantastic tasting brew with a very smooth and easy drinkability, what can I say this brewer did it again...
