24/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle @ Bierweekend Lambiekstoempers (Alsemberg) - BB: n/a (2013-796) Thanks to T. for sharing today’s beers!
Clear dark orange to pale amber beer, what’s so "Bruin" about this one? Creamy off-white to yellow head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very soapy, floral, orange peel, bit of caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: spicy, some honey, brown sugar, bit soapy, citrus. Aftertaste: some caramel, metallic, citrus and soapy. Very mediocre, and I’m really being kind here.

Bottle, bought @ Belgianshop.com.
Pours muddy dark brown with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Grainy, sweet aroma with som dried fruits tartness. Rather powerful with raisins, chocolate, buckwheat and plums. Medium carbonation, a tad thin mouthfeel. Flavour is very lightly metallic, some malty sweetness and Belgian sugars. Good fruitiness. Simple beer.
