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.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2012
-Pours a hazy, yet luminous copper color with beautiful large bubble ivory head. The head is short lived and no lacing was noted. The aroma is tart, a little funky, and very inviting. The taste is lemon, pear, and spice. The finish is dry and crisp. There is a hint of pepper in the aftertaste. And did I forget to mention the word sour. Not overpowering but there all the same. The mouthfeel is medium-light and effervescent. An excellant beer. --Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Sierra Nevada taproom. Cloudy and light amber/yellow with a white head. Hints of sourness in the aroma which is light. Very dry and peppery up front then followed by Brett funk and a mild sourness. Lemon along with a light fruity sweetness balance out the dry and sour. Finishes very dry with a lingering funkiness. This is a really good wild ale that has great balance and flavor.

750ml C&C bottle. This is a great beer that is still young in itís bottle fermentation. Iíve read the ratings here and a lot of people are rating it low because they donít understand Brettanomyces. Some complain that there is no "Brett" or "Funk" in the beer. Give it some time. As the label states: "this ale will progress in the bottle for many years." Also, the carbonation will increase over time as the Brett continues to eat any residual sugars left in the beer. Open a bottle in a year and notice the difference in carbonation.

pours a nice light orange color with a 1 finger white head which quickly falls. lemon and light barnyard aromas. med to full body with nice malt character aligned with some bright citrus bitterness and light barnyard flavors. very dry and Champagne like. lingering Belgian yeast esters. brilliant citrus finish with some earthy notes. I could drink this beer everyday! Well done SN & RR.

750ml bottle, from Discount Liquor Milwaukee, split with my bride. Pours a hazy, light amber color with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, funky, a little lemon. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sweet and tart, wheat, yeast, Brett, lemon, maybe a little orange, with a clean, Bretty finish. Very drinkable for a Brett beer. Want to grab a few bottles to see how it changes over time.

Gold pour, white head. So this beer is interesting. Those awaiting a funky, manure, barnyard brett beer will be disappointed. But the beer has really nice flavor. Some sweetness, caramel malt, spice, yeast, some grassy notes...I am very curious to see what some time will do to this brew. I can see some being disappointed initially, but to call this beer awful or one of the worst ever is plain silly.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle poured a cloudy golden with eye-catching red hues, small white head, active carbonation, and notable lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy, pear, apple, honey, and slight Brett. Taste is similar and includes lemon zest, pear, honey, enjoyable tease of funk, and fruit preserves. Great fruitiness, tartness, and a wonderful crisp finish. Should be amazing in 6 months when Brett comes out more!!

Iíve been drinking good beer for 35 years over 3500 from around the world and this will go down in my top3 worst ever. A BAD diet soda! Bitter, sour, fizzy head, an EPIC disaster. Some will say well thatís the way the style is suppose to be...then DESTROY this style because it SUCKS! A black mark forever on Sierra Nevada. (and a RIPOFF at $16 I could have had Burton Baton)

dogfish120love (1038) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Initial impression is a high ABV saison that was barely funkified by Brett. Floral/ lavender and soap notes, bread grass lemon and spices. Moderately sweet, but not overly cloying. Not nearly worth the $16 price tag.
