Crooked Stave "Wild Wild Brett Rouge" (W.W.B.R.)
Crooked Stave - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
American Wild Ale (ABV 5.2%)

[Best served in a 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 deep murky reddish orange with a huge (3-4 finger) off white fizzy head that quickly receded down to a thin layer with a small collar thus creating some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was funky to say the least of a grain malt and a barnyard scented wild yeast, along with floral and berry esters and a good strong note of Brett yeast.

The taste was sourly sweet with a note of berries early on with a sour acetic taste forming rather quickly along with hints of floral herbs and Brett yeast towards the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow, with a tart floral flavor along with a mild berry presence left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a little beyond light in body and had a strong dry texture with a pronounced prickly carbonation.

Overall a very interesting brew that had a nice tartness and a mild sweetness working in conjunction with one another perfectly, making this one hek of an enjoyable brew.
