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.

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.

750mL corked bottle. No indication of how old it is other than a code 2046611:40 on the bottle. It has been in my cellar for a number of years - at least 3 LOUD uncorking, slightly violent, didnít gush though. Pours a very lively orange-straw body. Big foam flairs up before dissipating down to a firm cap. Aroma is quite fruity - grapefruit, white grape, pear, peach, apricot, some hard cheesy & leesy funk in there, sherbert, slight phenolic spice. Carbonation is high but quite fine, textually almost somewhere between a Belgian strong & Saison - dry, chalky, slightly tart, yet retains richness & creaminess to it. Rather enjoyable combination of flavours on the body; husky, lightly toasted cereals, ripe pears & apricot, citrus rind, buttery/cheesy character, green herbal (almost coriander-like) notes, peppery spice. Finishes dry, some vinous minerality to it, lingers, acidity not as pronounced as expected - more akin to a Saison than Lambic. Truly unique, and certainly fair well with a number of years under its belt. Glad for the opportunity!

let this one sit for a while and it got very bretty. People were says when it was released that it wasnt bretty enough and it was great now. Highly recommend opening these now. Great brett finish, high carb.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2014
750ml bottle shared by crew at GTMW 2014 ticket line. Not impressive. Captures most of the negative traits of poorly made US sour. Light grainy infection. Low carbonation. Between SN and RR youíd think theyíd nail this. In no way commanding a high price tag. Meh.

BiddleBrau (986) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Big corked bottle. Hazy orange/gold with quickly disappearing head but very lively. Very funky nose. Earthy, funky tart dry and horse blanket. Authentic and well crafted. Iíd expect nothing less. If I found this in a small Belgian brewery, Iíd be happy with the find.

EdInSaltLake (703) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Earthy, tart aroma. Pretty champagne-like. A little dusty... Maybe subtle cleaning product? High carbonation. Sweet malt, with earthy and tart flavors. Pepper spiciness. Substantial bitter aftertaste.

Drake (9460) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle shared at a private tasting. I missed this when it was first released so Iím glad to see it show up. Pours a hazy golden with no head. Aroma of stone fruit, brett, earth, citrus, caramel. The taste is citrus, earth, tropical fruits, pale malt, mild brett. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

slowrunner77 (6286) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Pricepoint about half way between SN & RR 750ís. Pretty tame, but pretty tasty brett beer that seems to be a lightish tripel base. Slightly sweet, dry, fairly heavily carbonated, with light fruit and a hint of bubble gum over a decent grassy amount of brett. Not very sour or tart, but weíll sit on one or two and see how it evolves."

phaleslu (7041) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
750 ml bottle, and I canít remember where I got it. I want to say it was one of the last bottles I acquired before moving from St. Louis to Cincinnati two years ago. Pours a clear deep, dark gold color with a finger of off-white head that settles quickly; later pours have some haziness. Aroma of bready and bretty funk, grass, mellow spice, pear, lime, dry grains, and straw. The flavor has the same slate of notes. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, funky mouthfeel. For being a bottle-conditioned beer with a couple years on it, this seemed pretty restrained still to me. I had higher expectations, even though itís a good beer overall.

Very complex. Wonderful copper, gold color. The Brettanomyces creates a wonderful earthy, funk flavor that is perfect with the fruity undertones. Very effervescent. Favorite brew that Iíve had for a while. Not sure how old this bottle was.
