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.

JStax (3680) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Pours an ever hazy blonde with a white head of foam that retains itself at first, but then diminishes quickly. Aroma reminds me a great deal of orval and cheese. The cheese notes either fade away, or I quit noticing. In the taste I picked up a nice apple note with some acidity to it. This beer isnít all that sour, maybe letting it condition a little while longer will bring that out. I do prefer my sours to have a little more kick than this one has in that department, though.

thome50 (1228) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep orange with frothy white head. Aroma is flower pedals, grass, barn yard and some sour notes as well that make you think you are leading up to something "big" in the sour department. Taste is muted cheese, funk, pepper, slight dry citrus and some lemon grass. Overall, middle of the road to training wheels American wild ale. Hope this really does change a great deal with more time in the bottle.

rougeau13 (2179) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Lightly hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of funky Brett, spice, sour citrus and apple, and hay. The taste is yeasty and a little sour. Fizzy mouthfeel and medium body; dry. Itís pretty good, but I think I should have held onto it a while before trying it.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Tap @ E9. Clear gold pour with a brief white head leaving no lace. Nose is lightly funky and citrusy. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Barnyard, bandaids, bananas - a funky Belgian Golden with a bit of the wild. Finish is medium, funky and umami. Not as much tartness as I was expecting, but might age very nicely.
