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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
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!

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. 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
