Pours a slightly cloudy, pale, dark, yellow. The head develops, and drops, quickly resulting in no head after a minute. No lace.
Smell is delightfully sour and musty. Some malt, spices, hint of hops maybe. Good balance.
Taste is malty, musty, banana (light), spices. Well balanced.
Warming, drying, medium-light body with a tart, sharp effervescence.
This particular bottle I purchased in November 2012, 13 months ago. It's really good.

Russian River and Sierra Nevada Brux

Appearance: orange, large head, and some lacing.

Smell: sweet tart sourness, slight yeast, and a few fruit notes.

Taste: very light sourness, pear, lemon, and a light yeast.

Mouthfeel: medium and carbonated.

Overall:
This is an interesting brew. The smell dictates a sour wild ale, but it seems more like a saison. It seems tad watery in the finish.
