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.

Pours a clear golden orange with thick fizzy head. Heavily carbonated, very dry. Cherries, peaches, brett on the nose. Spices, brett, lots of citrus flavors. A surprisingly mellow sour ale. A good beer, but Iím not sure itís $16 good.

Bottle thanks to nate321, lots of beer karma for you on this one! Pours a really hazy golden, looking quite simply like a nice peach juice maybe. The head is fizzy and disappears fast, carbonation is really strong in this one. Nose is really fruity with some pretty evident cherries and other fruits (apricots, peaches?). Taste is dry as advertised, fruity. Again some cherries but also some dusty brett, finish is a little spicy. Body is light, carbonation pretty intense. It isnít too distracting, though, so all is well. Pretty nice, you can definitely feel the brett brux at work in this one!

jake65 (2873) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle, with about a year of cellar time. Bright golden peach color with a fizzy beige head. Nose is lively with brett, grains, and grass. Light and crisp flavors; lemon, grass, wheat, and brett. Heavily carbonated. Capped and refrigerated half the bottle for two days and it still had plenty of bubbles. A good brew, on the verge of very good, but it canít compete at this price point ($16).

Bottle shared at GTMW ticket line, pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head, the aroma has a decent amount of tart fruit with the dryness of the brett showing as well, the flavor has a fruity lemon like front end with some brett dryness in the finish, light mouthfeel, interesting.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body under a large fizzy thin white head that receded to a thin wispy film. The nose is just full-on brett funkiness with some pale malt. Very fruity and funky. The flavor is brett dominated as well with some light tartness and fruity notes. Finishes with a nice brisk lemon-like note with some spiciness that almost comes across as clove like. Light bodied and bone dry with lots of fizzy prickly carbonation and a short but very bright finish. Very nice beer, really lets the brett shine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (3270) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2014
This a cloudy orange brew w/ a small and short lived head of medium bubbles. Itís mildly fruity in the nose, which is nice enough, but the defining characteristic of this beer is itís super overcarbonated. From what I can tell, aside from that, this is a nice, dry, bretty beer but ultimately it just tastes like fizz and that is too bad.

20140413 750 ml bottle from I dunno... This is the least interesting and most still Brett effort Iíve had in a while. Okay, Iíve been hanging on to it for a year or so, but seriously it should be more memorable. I mean, Iíd take most any RR or SN beer over this one, and the normal still is half the cost. itís fine, but just not as worthwhile as the $$$.

John25 (957) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2014
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Bottle a year and a half old, maybe more. Poured hazy orange, tangerine with tons of active carb. Loud fizzy bubbles. The aroma is mainly pear and peach with a little underlying funk note. The taste has a lot of peach, green apple and some sweet candy notes. Mouthfeel is dry and very complex with high carb. Excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white head and some of the most active carbonation I've seen. Looks like a science experiment. Aroma is peach, pear and earthy funk. Taste is peppery with lemon and a horse blanket finish with light peach notes. Spritzy carb and quick dry finish. Very solid.
