From AJ’s. Nose is vegetal and berry-filled. Appearance is clear dark orange/brown. Little lacing. Taste starts quite tart, shocking, then mellows quickly. Lots of small bubble carbonation, sugar, fruit. Palate has a nice thick feel, but finishes rather neutral. Good.

There seems to be some debate about whether Bockor Bellegems Bruin is a Sour Red/Brown Ale or a Flanders Oud Bruin. I don’t know enough about either style to weigh in, but I can conclusively say that this makes for a fantastic dessert beer. Aroma is malty and fruity, albeit a bit understated. Flavor is more complex than the aroma would lead you to believe. Fruits take the main stage with sour apple, pear, strawberry, raspberry, and black berry. Even while working in the background, malts offer some unique flavors, too: caramel, brown sugar, woodiness, and even a hint of booze. It’s the kind of beer that seems made for a slice of fruit pie, fresh out of the oven.

Head quickly fades to a tan, thin but lasting top. Very aromatic with strong sweet-fruit and sourness Almost candy-like. Wonderful maltiness countered with a strong bitter sourness. Finishes with lighter, cookie like flavors. Only thing I don’t like is a slight lingering metallic flavor.

Brown light body and a small white head. Aroma of malt, sour fruits. The taste is medium sweet and sour. Short finish, watery. Not in the same leage as duchesse, rodenbach and so on. Easy to drink.
