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 from AZ Wine. Pours copper with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of Belgian yeast and pale malt. Straightforward. Reminds me a lot of Damnation.

Interesting bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a copper color with a small white head. The aroma is grassy lemons and some light funk. The flavor comes across as a German Hefe at times with some lemon and banana esters, a bit of dry funkiness. Certainly big Brux, very mellow. Good.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Consumed in the tap room at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a nose of cider, caramel and fruit. The taste is malty with hints of apple. Effervescent on the tongue, while still creamy, with a long finish. Strong ale at 8.3% alcohol. This is an interesting take on a Belgian yeast, and was worth trying. But Belgians not being my thing, I probably won’t have it again.

Braudog (6041) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle, caged/corked. Fizzy pour, effervescent and lively, but with a mere thin head. Lightly yeasty and fruit-laden aroma. This drinks with the classical wild ale appeal, without being overpowered. Pleasantly easy to drink, with hinting aspects of the Belgian families of beers. Not an over the top sour (not at all) or wild (barley) exemplar, but an entertaining beer nonetheless.

JaBier (5691) - 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 (6184) - 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 (3582) - 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.
