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.

Definitely plenty of brett taste. Nice sharp lemony finish. Pretty straightforward and easy drinking.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with minmal head. Green apple, lemon, tart aromas. Tart, brett, pear flavors. Seems a little under carbonated.

kbutler1 (1349) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a golden orange color with a big pillowy white head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a touch of spice as well, lemon. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a very Belgian yeast type of flavor with fruit, banana, and spice and then moves to a ever so slight barnyard note. Slight bitterness in the end. Overall, its decent but I am looking forward to this sitting for a while to develop.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with fizzy white head. Aroma of light funk and citrus. Flavor has some complexities such has farmhouse, citrus, antique, attic, earth, fruits, wheat malt, no real tartness in this brew though. Ligjt-medium mouth feel with very high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, enjoyable brew but not worth the price tag.

travita (3856) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Copper colored, nice foamy off white head but disapates quickly to a still beer, and see through. The smell is funk, fruit, hay, lactic, pineapple, mango, and good. The taste is dry, funk, tropical fruits, hay, slight tartness, and interesting. Lively crisp body.

ryanfolty (1831) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
July 21, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Orange pour with some head that quickly faded. Aroma was funk, belgian yeast and spice. Fruity, belgian yeast, spice, some sour and a dry and maybe even bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and some carbonation. May get better with aging, but not sure I want to pay $15 to find out.

Has some really nice lemon scents and a little tart funkiness. Has a cloudy apple juice color, taste is a nice lemon up front with a finishing sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with micro film atop.

Aroma: Flowers, grandma perfume, funk, baby powder.

Taste: Dry cracker like malt, mild brett fruitiness,a little metallic, funky, citrusy.. Finishes bretty and bitter with a slight tart twang.

Mouthfeel: High prickly carbonation. Medium bodied.

Overall: If this becomes a full time or even seasonal beer, it will go down as a classic. The product description is spot on, dry and complex. Iíve been reading discussions elsewhere on this beer, with some disappointment over lack of tartness. Correct me if Iím wrong but I believe the term Wild Ale and Russian River take folks mind to the land of sours. Itís not sour, itís not a funk bomb, but all terminology and marketing aside, its a delicious beer.
