COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began as mutual admiration between Sierra Nevadaís Grossman Family and Russian Riverís Cilurzos has grown and progressed into genuine friendship. Brux began as an idea and has grown into something altogether different:

The liquid manifestation of change over time.

Refermented in the bottle with Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Brux will change and develop over time. Copper-colored, dry and complex, with slightly tart notes of green grass, pear, spice and lemon - this ale will progress in the bottle for many years.

750ml bottle: pours an effervescent dark golden with a large froth of white head. Has a fresh biscuity malty nose with some lemon zest and light horse blanket funk. Starts with good fullness and lively carbonation with mild pale malty sweetness and light tart balance with a good amount of dry funk and floral hops before a bittersweet grassy finish. Very true to style and should age well.

750 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Yellowish-orange pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of light Belgian yeast, orange peel, and faint spices. The flavor is pleasantly tart but certainly nothing that would put this into the sour beer category. The light tartness is met with some bitterness from the hops and yeast. The high carbonation acts like champagne bubbles barely allowing any lingering flavor to remain on the palate. This is a very well done Belgian-style ale.

Fairly lively at first, but fades away quickly. Refreshing with a dry finish. Slightly sour, with a little bit of funk. Pretty good, canít wait to try again down the road.

Yum. Beautiful beer well balanced fruity and yeasty. As it warms in your hand new flavor profiles develop. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Wintercoat Brewery for sharing this very special bottle of beer. Hazy golden colour with a small white somewhat lasting head. The aroma reveals the lambic yeast with notes of fruits and citrous. Dry grassy taste with fruity notes. Where did the brett go? I expected more of this one. i may be fermented with brett in the bottle, but lacks the real lambic taste. Lambic lovers will hate this one for lacking lambic-taste and lambic-haters wont even taste it because of the aroma. Who was it made for?

Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly musty hay and with some fruitiness. Flavor is almost as light as a saison with a little more body. Thereís some lightly tart yeast flavors, mild spice and a little lemon in the finish. Very complex while retaining a light, refreshing body.

Nose is pear and notes of cranberry and cinnamon. Creamy white head. Sour flavor with pear aftertaste. Lemony and mildly spicy. Very good.

Bottle, 12/4/2012. Pours golden amber, light haze, fizzy white head dies down pretty quickly, leaving small ring of lacing, very bubbly. Aroma is mild tropical fruit, pear, faint apple, toasted straw malts, light dusty brett. Flavor is bisuit malts, Belgian yeast, tripel-like spiciness, earthy, light white fruits, mild tartness and touch of barnyard beginning to show. Crisp, dry body, highly carbonated. Nice, can see this start to develop a bit more since the initial release. Must be patient with my last bottle.

Mild..just a smidge of Brett on the nose. Pale YELLOW. Very light...refreshing and floral. Hardly any Brett or funk...was is there to begin with? Nice easy drinker but nothing special. Glad I waited for the price to drop.

750mL bottle, $16.99ish at Olive Tree Market in OB a few months back when this came out (August?). Clear medium amber with a one finger fizzy white head, big bubbles, fading to a tiny ring rather quickly. Fruity leathery pineapple pear nose, light dust with some pale malts. The flavor continues with the pineapple pear, the leather fading a good deal. Some nice spicy white pepper yeast notes come through, minimal sweetness right before the finish, which is bone dry. Bitterness peaked at a 2ish, some alcohol present. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. Quite solid, though didnít blow my mind , but Iím glad I managed a $10 bottle at OB Quik Stop during one of the sales (for the cellar!).
