COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Very mellow sourness, barely there. Mild yeast and a tiny bit of dried fruits. Touch of lactose. Finishes semi dry. Unusually mellow but quite drinkable.

Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours an unclear, golden-orange body and a minimal-sized off-white head. The aroma is rather sweetish, with a touch of lemon and orange. canned pears and some hay. Some peppery hints too. It’s a tad carbonated for my likings, with a dry, full-bodied palate. Pale malt hints in the flavor, with peaches, canned pears, some sugary hints and a faint touch of black pepper. Long finish. Not very sour this one, it feels sweet without being it, and in general tastes quite nice. But nothing extraordinary going on. 130814

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Dull tan, no head. Aroma has brett, subtle malts...in the direction of gueuze but quite a bit cleaner. There’s a fair bit of alcohol coming through, sweet, just a hint of tartness, bit of cidery character as well. More time might bring out the brett a little better. Inchoate.
