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.

Pours a hazy tan dull copper color with a two finger off white foam that rings out quickly... lots of bottom rising bubbles. Aromas are bright, grassy, apricot, strawberry and touch of earthy funk. On the palate the beer is refreshing and thoughtful but not quite as complex as the nose made me hope for. Great saison qualities; sweet Belgian yeast, malty roundness with great herbal grassiness, grapefruit and light bitterness coming through as well. Some of the tart funkiness on the nose is apparent but very subtle and rides the backseat of this one making it a good beer but not a great beer. I have another bottle and it seems everyone including the brewers feel this one will liven up a bit more on the wild side in time... Ill set it aside for a bit and reassess later.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Night light tart malty flavor with a quick finish.

Where’s the farm? I was disappointed or misled, thinking this was going to be something special. Nothing was special. Its a very drinkable beer. But reminded me more of a Saison or Bel Blond. Pear and citrus flavors. Clean dry finish. Somewhat refreshing. Wouldn’t spend the money to buy another.

Excellent beer. Very smooth ale with hints of many flavors. Very enjoyable after taste.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2012
This almost satisfies my lambic craving! Pours light amber with a thin head that fades to almost nothing pretty quickly. Green apple, white grapes and a bit of pineapple on the nose. Flavor is crisp and refreshing, dry, slightly bitter, more green apple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smelled like yogurt. Dry and funky perhaps a bit of green apple. Large bottle from whole foods ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good beer. I like the balance of funk and malty sweetness. Good bitterness on the finish. Excellent carbonation.

ddemmingjr (718) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle at the Hillbrook: pours cloudy dark golden, minimal head that vanishes. Nose is fresh, green apple, pear, Brett, some oak. On the palate, dry and sour notes, pear and yeast. I agree with previous raters that this beer could use some age for complexity. Looking for another bottle to sit on.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks fine; light orange with razor-thin lacing. Smells pretty good; earthy. Tastes good; tart. Mouthfeel is average. Solid.

DYCSoccer17 (3350) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
3 ounce sample from a bottle courtesy of TJ from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Lightly tart aroma with hints of estery yeast notes. Mild banana character. Light fruitiness. Pretty faint nose, and not much happening here. Moderately hazy golden body with a small to medium off-white head present. Starts a bit dry, dusty, and yeasty. The middle has some marzipan notes and light fruitiness. Finishes a little spicy and bitter, witch very light underlying Brett. Needs a good while before you can expect any Bretty funkness out of this. Probably a year or so.
