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.

BillWyce (1116) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2012
From notes: Poured hazy straw color with a touch of orange and a small, thin off-white head that was gone quickly. Aroma is lemony and grassy with a notable sourness. Full body, a touch syrupy, with an earthy dryness in the finish from the Brett. Lemony citrus flavor mixed with an earthy tartness and a mild grassy note beneath.

Zymurgeist2 (2434) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle to wine glass. Subtle sour aroma with slight malt and restrained flowal hops. Clear, slightly dark gold with white head. Apple and sour taste with very dry finish.

Cybercat (6334) - Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Pours a lovely, hazy, bubbly golden amber with a fairly thick pale golden-tan head that quickly vanishes. Aroma is strong and fruity, more like a cider than an ale, but has a malty undertone. Malty flavor has a firm fruity note, mainly apple with hints of pear and banana, and just a hint of horehound. Texture is very fizzy, though a bit on the watery side. Finish is none too strong. Overall, not too shabby. Can you tame this one?

Perhaps my expectations were too high? Aroma and appearance both of the beer and the bottle are high points. The taste was very tangy so much so that I switched to Resling after drinking it.

75cl bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Pours a golden colour with large white frothy head.Lemon,green apple,hay and some maltiness in the aroma which all come through in the taste.The barnyard notes are more pronounced in the taste making an interesting and tasty brew.Would be nice to try again after a few years in the cellar but so many beers out there to sample this probaly wont happen.

Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a light gold color with a sizable white head. The nose has notes of grass, brett, and yeast. The flavor has a light tartness with notes of pale malt, grass, white pepper, and light florals. Highly effervescent and light on the tongue. Great brew.

Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2012
This beer pours a bubbly dark golden color with a fizzy white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild brett, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of funky fruit, earthy malt and grassy hops. The finish is lightly funky with a tart fruity aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Lots of carbonation, almost too much. Great nose, but finishes flat. Could be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
