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.

chimaybier (71) - 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 (6505) - 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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2012
750ml bottle. Bright golden brew with some bubbly white head. Nose is complex and funky - citrus, grassy hops, earth. Lots of brett flavor - pineapple, earth, and a bit of funk. I imagine this will age incredibly well.

PorterPounder (5363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Pours an sparking orangish copper with not much of a head. Aroma has a nice underlying alcohol scent to it, some light vinegar notes, some baseball card bubble gum (the cheap flat stuff). Flavor has a nice earthy rough sour essence to it, but not too lip puckering. Some faint licorice notes, a bit of black tea, a touch of spearmint in the finish. Just the right amount of spritz in the mouthfeel. Solid. Closest Tallahassee will ever get to Russian River!

Slightly hazy golden orange pour with a nice white head. A lot of carbonation. Aroma is a bit of funk, pear, yeast, and spice. Taste is apple, funk, and bread. Carbonation is fuzzy on the palate. Dry finish. Pretty nice overall.

LinusStick (2817) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
A decent beer, but just an alright sour ale. Aroma was very nice. Very musty and thick with stale hops and yeasty notes. Pour was a cloudy bubbly and murky orange with a two finger white head. Taste was where the beer fell flat. It wasn't awful, but it was pretty weak. Belgian yeast was the main flavor, with the stale hops and funk providing a nice backbone. The problem was the beer wasn't very tart. Maybe a little, but that's all. As it warmed, the flavor seemed more of a saison than a sour ale. Great strong biting carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the bottle into my Sierra Nevada 30th anniversary Tulip glass. Aroma is of brett, some grain, fruity. Love it! Flavor is a little harsh from alcohol, buy still sour and grainy. The carbonation is high, which is expected, buy not needed.... Overall its delicious but I feel it has a lot to gain from cellaring.
