750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Let me say right off the bat that this is an obvious possible rerate down the road (since I tucked away a second bottle), but I was none too impressed with this one. High hopes certainly played a role, but it was honestly fairly bland. Thinnish orange body, and an indistinct nose of fall fruit and the faintest tartness. Mouthfeel was a bit oily, not much going on. And the flavors were also fairly disappointing, with not quite so much base character aside from the very unassuming brett and fruit. It’ll be interesting to see if and how this develops. For now, pretty average.
750 mL bottle poured, shared by Tcon. Thanks! 4 years of age. A golden orange pour with a quick fading head. A mixture of different ripe fruit aroma, with a strong brett impression. Apple and brett headlined flavor, a ton of funk that lingers forever, and a covered up spice. An interesting beer. Strange. I like it. AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 30, 2016
750 ml bottle purchased at Julio’s way back when it was released in 2012. (Meant to pop this sooner) Got lost in the shuffle. Still plenty of carbonation, with a spirited pop of the cork. Crystal clear orange in color. Aroma is pale malt and very light "musty basement"... Weak fruit. Not much else. Strife21 (338) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
The Brett is here for sure, mild fruit, weak grain, weak hay. Body is on the thin side. Lightly effervescent. In terms of how old this is, nothing is wrong with it. Nothing oxidized or off. But considering the two Brewers, I really was expecting much more after holding it all these years. Just ok.
Pours dark orange with thin white head. Smell is sour cherry, funk and vinegar. Taste is funky but smooth, prune, cherry, pear and hay notes. Medium body, medium carb. thepatrickman (1336) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle at the Earth Eagle bottle share. This has a hint of Brett, but nowhere near enough for a beer that’s straight-up named "Brux" ! It tastes mainly like a straightforward Belgian golden ale, with some sweetness and fruity yeast esters, but with a light Brett component that adds some green apple flavor, a tiny bit of funk, and not much else. I love both of these breweries, but this is pretty underwhelming. tcon25 (844) - Duvall, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle pour split, purchased at apex in Portland. Thin golden pour, soft brett aroma with a tone of oak brett flavor decent amount of carb still for 4 years old. Not much other flavors present.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Tcon. Thin white foam, hazed dark orange body. Candy sweet Brett aroma, darker fruity brown sugar. Apple brett dubbel like. Odd. Quite fizzy body. Not great. Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Funky taste. Flat, not a great smell, nor taste, is not sour enough. Clear color is good. rxeight (3080) - Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2016
750 ml. 2012 bottle. Cloudy orange yellow. Slightly dark. Aroma sweet. Banana. Belgian Brett. Taste dry Brett. Slight citrus. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Pours a burnt golden orange color with a very short lived, fizzy white head. Vinegar, funk, tart, pear, apple, grass and yeast aroma. Vinegar, funk, tart, apple, pear, apricot, caramel, bread, lemon, biscuit and earthy flavors. Medium body and lively carbonation. Very dry finish. A bit bland, was expecting more. Very champagne like. jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2015
750 ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of grain, earthy, light spice. Light bodied, complex with a dry finish.
