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.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Pours clear gold with a thick off-white head. Funky nose with some malt, citrus and tropical fruit. Malty and estery flavor with some citrus before a dry and funky finish. Can’t wait to taste this one with some age on it!

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours unfiltered amber orange with a nice bubbly head. Big time barn yard in the nose along with green apple, pear, lemon grass and chardonnay. Light to medium body that is very dry and has some harsh phenol bitter flavors. Pear and green apple underlay the overall earthy solventy flavor of this brew. This should get funkier and less aggressively bitter with age. Interesting.

Sledutah (4686) - Utah, USA - AUG 4, 2012
750ml bottle picked up at Bevmo in Vacaville
Appearance: Slightly cloudy golden with a small white head, lots of bubbles in the glass, no lacing
Aroma and taste was fruity, brett and tart, dry finish. It was OK, I thought it was too sweet.

DialSquare (2659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Corked bottle from Market Square. Gold pour with a massive fluffy white head that eventually disappears leaving a ring. Aroma is sour apple, straw and brett funk. Tastes are straw, pear, belgian yeast, pepper, floral, apple. Light to medium sour. Texture is lively and dries out a bit. Just read up on the forums about aging sours and it seems like this one could develop over time. May stash another.

Excellent stuff. this pours light amber with a thin head. The aroma is very nice, fruity with just a hint of funk. the flavor is very nice indeed. It’s very fruity with a bit of sour and a bit of funk. Extremely refreshing for the ABV.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks to Craig. Great fruity Brett character. Notes of mint, stone fruits, tart. A nice beer.

chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - AUG 3, 2012
750 ML bottle purchased at BevMo in Redding, CA. THE POUR / APPEARANCE: Pours a medium hazy golden color. AROMA / BOUQUET: Classic Gueuze aroma- pear, spices, grassyness, hay, barnyard funk. TASTE: Sherry dryness with champagne. Appropriate sourness with just a hint of herbal hoppiness to remind the drinker that this is a California brewed beer. PALATE: Correct fizzyness / carbonation, quenching, evokes memories of drinking the classic Belgian Gueuze beers. OVERALL: The moment I tasted BRUX, I was reminded of an beer that is a cross between a Boon Gueuze and a Saison DuPont. This is a great beer- pair it with a great goat cheese or blue cheese, foie gras, or enjoy as a great session beer. Blessings on this one!

jglanton (18) - Yorba Linda, CA, California, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Aroma of earthy hay, ripe pineapple and dried apricot. Golden copper color with a lively, frothy head. Slightly hazy. Taste of sweet apricot, pineapple, some pine, just a light bitterness and light sourness. Carbonation both soft and lively, a sublime experience crossing the lips and tongue. Creamy texture. Finish is moderate bitter. Bottle Date Code: 2 5622:14 Drank 8/3/2012

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice funky note with a good amount of light fruit with a backing light caramel note. Flavor has more light fruit and sweet grains with the funk coming out lightly in the finish.
