Appears a complex light caramel copper note with light beige head forms thick with a lot of lacing...aroma has tart notes of mild citrus hints of bubblegum and apricot with other wild yeast components...domesticated yeast in this sense including Brettanomyces Bruxellensis ferment very clean compared to the thought that some of these beers are going to be full of barnyard and funk, I'll admit Brett has those tendencies but in this well aged bottle I get none of that character. Just highly carbonated pale ale full of some interesting characteristics including honey notes, bubblegum, green apple, and fresh sliced pear notes. Overall the flavor is fantastic a really enjoyable sessionable complex ale in all it's glory I'll include more of those descriptors in the flavor profile, can't wait to try some Crooked Stave ales...a lot of Brett gone wild beers from them.

Brux pours a cloudy golden color, with a nice large long lasting white head. There is a yeasty and very tart aroma. The taste has a nice crisp flavor, with a yeasty flavors, lots of tart notes, and some sourness. Good feel nice contrast from the tart and sweet. Overall a nice complex beer.

From Slowbeer, shared with RWalford74.

An interesting product. The brewers claim a Belgian style ale with Brett. And that is exactly what you get. Very very drinkable, with about a year of so of ageing the brett is coming thru nicely, and is quite tart. One glass pour was lively, good head, the other went to film almost immediatley.
But that is really all you get, and for the price point and the reputation of the brewers it is almost like they set their sights too low.

I have another which I will age for a couple more years.

O - marked down one mark due to prohibitive price point for end product.
