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.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a light gold color with a sizable white head. The nose has notes of grass, brett, and yeast. The flavor has a light tartness with notes of pale malt, grass, white pepper, and light florals. Highly effervescent and light on the tongue. Great brew.

This beer pours a bubbly dark golden color with a fizzy white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild brett, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of funky fruit, earthy malt and grassy hops. The finish is lightly funky with a tart fruity aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Lots of carbonation, almost too much. Great nose, but finishes flat. Could be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden orange color. Had a VERY fizzy head that disappered very quickly. Aroma is a lot of tropical fruits, pineapple, rotten banana, some caramel, floral perfumy, banana. Hmm...Taste is slightly tart, alot of banana, rotten fruits, sweet, strange..not at all what I excpected. To me this is not too good to be honest. Shame coming from such great brewers.

Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pourís a hazy gold color with a large white head that quickly settles. The nose is light pineapple, some soap, marshmallow and wild yeast. Light marshmallow, dank basement. The taste is more pineapple fruit hops, some apple, light soapy finish. Plenty of mineral. Earthy barnyard, hints of wild funk. Medium body, heavy carbonation. Overall, decent. Nice, fruity hop body. The brett is only mildly present. Slightly heavy carbonation.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is nice, it smells like pears, apricots, lemon peel, peppery spice, brett, and some hay. The brew tastes similar to the aroma, like apricots, hay, bready malt, funk, and some light banana and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium and a bit slick, but with very high carbonation. The high carbonation doesnít help the drinkability of this brew for me. Overall I think this is a solid brew and itís certainly worth trying, but I would have to think before spending $14.99 on this again. Hopefully the next time I try this Iíll get a bottle thatís less carbonated than this one was.

From a 22 oz bottle shared with friends. Pours a clear gold with a quickly disappearing white head. Funky bread aroma aroma. Sweet golden raisins with a champagne mouthfeel.

A great Brett crafting. Yellow with lasting foamy head, it did foram over somewhat. Funky aroma. Very tasty and like a white wine pairing for lunch. Great drinkability. Soft mouthfeel. From Winooskiís.

Bottle. Hazy golden straw color, with a large frothy white head. Biscuity malt, tart lemon zest, green apple, nice yeast reminiscent of russian river, light funk, and a bit white peppery and floral. Quite enjoyable, not a full blown sour. Should age well, but unfortunately I do not have additional bottles.
