Appearance: Gold with a touch of haze. White head with only moderate retention.

Taste: Light tartness, strong effervescence, earthy balance, pear, stone fruit, and clove.

Overall Impression: The beer is flavorful and complex with a great deal of Brettanomyces character. Considering the pedigree of this beer, it and I shall enjoy a long relationship of discovery.

  1. Nice. I like the “Brux Project”. I still haven’t pulled the trigger on this fella yet. I feel that perhaps the beer’s potential is baked into the price, and with as impatient as I am and my abode’s poor cellaring capacity…I would just end up regretting the purchase.
