Huge thanks to rudzud for sharing this great beer.
Light fizzy head, nice for wild, little lacing, mostly clear rosy pale amber color.
Nose is awesome, lots of great funk, tartness, sour fruit, blueberries all over, sour green berry skin and vinous funk, blueberry flesh, little oaky note, floral funk, nice Brett, so much greatness. Dregs just exploded with blueberry.
Taste great sour fruit, sour blueberries, funk, juicy tart blueberry with little green skin and flesh, fresh, with nice tart flavours, and juice. Nice Brett funk, little sour fruit almost apricot like stone fruit but sour. Nice acetic acid, with stem bitterness note, and nice vinous flavours with a touch of oak. Great blend of everything that just goes down so well. Finish is sticky and flemmy but dry, little acidic bite, more fresh blueberry and tartness, and sour fruit lingering.
Mouth is med bod, lots of carb, nice pop, nice acidic bite, no booze.
Overall just phenomenal. Just amazing, so much great Brett funk and blueberry, great acidity and no booze, so tasty.

A cloudy dark blonde and light purple with a creamy, small-bubbled head. This doesn't foam up like (all?) the other WWB series beers I've had. The creamy, light khaki-clored head remains a thin crown atop the beer and leaves irregular, messy, webs of lace down the glass. Pretty.
Not as Brett-forward as the other beers in the series, with the yeast really only playing a minor role, adding a musky basement note, next to the sweet, plump, authentic, yet earthy blueberry character. Both interesting and enjoyable--two things Crooked Stave does well.
The flavor is marvelously enjoyable; sweet, plump blueberries with just a hint of a tartness, mild but complementary basement funk, a little bit of earth and grass. Marvelously drinkable.
Again, as with many Crooked Stave offerings, the mouthfeel is simply perfect. Creamy, airy, though rich, and disappearing. Marvelously crafted, interesting, delicious, Brett beer.
My drinking buddy only had one word for this beer, "Fabulous."

Served in Crooked Stave stemware. Pours a nice light pinkish color with a nice head and a bit of lacing. The nose is really excellent with notes of blueberry and earth. Funk in the background. Really excellent. Flavor doesn’t disappoint either. Really enjoyed the combination of the Brett and blueberry character with just a bit of backing acidity. Light body; extremely drinkable.
