Here's a picture from my phone. Before bottling it was around 3 or 4 srm. I use star san to sanitize but I didn't think that it would affect color like iodophor might if used at a high dose. The flavor change is even more drastic than the color change though.

It has to be the Brett...right?

Trying to revive this thread, even though it got a little snippy.

I too have been struck with the purple. Brett dregs added to a saison after fermentation was complete. You will see attached the finished saison in comparision with it's 1 gallon experiment with Orval and Sofie dregs.

It has to be some Brett overreaction with oxygen, right? I cant really imagine that there was any kind of oxygenation problem, though, as i did nothing different than any other beer i have done over the 2 years ive been at it, but who knows?

Anyone able to wait this out and salvage the awful purple?

Whether oxygen is directly or indirectly the cause, it certainly plays a role. Here is a picture of the same beer (a pale sour beer aged in a wine barrel). The only difference is that the one on the right was poured 10 days ago and left in my cool/dark basement until tonight. The one on the left is freshly poured.
