Year of New Beer: Brux Domesticated Wild Ale, Sierra Nevada Brewing/Russian River Brewing (CA)

Written By: Dion on 11/04/2020

Sitting in my cellar for nearly nine years, I honestly wasn't expecting much from this, but ended up pleasantly surprised. Nose features pear and apple skin, with hints of dry hay and cork. Pretty similar on the tongue with the apple note stepping ahead of the pear and white grape. A little bit dusty and funky, but also a touch of oxidation-induced cardboard. Crisp and very dry on the finish. Not too bad for such an old beer.
