COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began as mutual admiration between Sierra Nevada’s Grossman Family and Russian River’s 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.

Bottle. Pours light orange with frothy white head. Nice aroma of apples, pears, Belgium yeast, and funk. Taste of sour apples. Good Brett flavor. Crisp finish. Nice to see Sierra Nevada try something different. Will buy more to age. Very good.

Pours a clear sparkling apple juice color in the glass. Slight cardboard aroma with a bit of apple and caramel in the background. Clean dry and bubbly on the palate. Slight champagne flavors of pear and citrus. Overall, its drinkable but not too exciting.

Domesticated wild ale is a good description. Kinda like a real true sour beer with smooth rather than rough edges. Don't get me wrong...really good beer.

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Pours a hazy light orange color with a very tall head and a ton of cascading carbonation. Nose has a sweat pear and lemon nose with some nice brett funk. Flavor has a strong lemon flavor up front, some modest spicy notes from the brett, light fruity pear notes and a solid funky brett finish. Body is crisp with a fantastic amount of carbonation to give that great bite you expect with the acidic sour note. Overall a very enjoyable brew. If it weren’t for the price, I think I would stock the shelves in the basement with this for future drinking.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is moderately funky, with yeast, pears, some Belgian spices, and lemons. Flavour is quite wild and funky, with slightly tart pear skins, some Belgian yeast, barnyard funk and some moderate candied sugar, but the tartness and wild character overtake this. A little thin and unrefined, but quite drinkable. Decent stuff.

6ROW (405) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Foggy orange pour with a dense offwhite fleadiing head. Great sour aroma and taste , if you love American lagers than stay away from this one! Age this one a few year and it would be amazing! The 8.3 avb will sneak up on you.

25.4 fl oz. bottle to flute Aroma of lemon, Bret yeast, alcohol, and molasses. Cloudy orange with no head. Taste is sour, but subtle; very little bitterness initially, but a little bit at the end. Very little carbonation, oily and silky.
