Redbrown beer that doesn’t know if it wants to be a brown beer or a fruitbeer, but ends up being a lousy example of either sort.

Beertobealive (332) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Pours a short beige head with lambic like sour flavor. Dark ruby to light brown colored body. In mouth, taste of acid berry and red duchesse de Bourgogne rather than any Belgian brown beer. Medium length but definitely too sour for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2015
25cl bottle. I had the blond and the brown ale, but only remember the taste of this one. The sourness is very appealing, but the finish has an ’iron’ taste. Very unpleasant.

Fin (8132) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle at Le Pantin, Ixelles, Brussels, Saturday 21st March 2015 Some balsamic on the nose, sweet, tart and with a good sour edge. Loz isn’t a fan of this place so I am gonna have to rush my rating. I actually rather like this beer compared to the frankly drab blonde. It’s sour, tart, tangy, fruity, repeats a little on the way down. Good beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Alusmamuts (789) - LATVIA - MAR 14, 2015
Drak brown with rich beige head. Sour fruity aroma. Sour and swet fruity taste, something of red and wood fruits, slight bitterness on the background, very refreshing.

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Keg at Six Deg Abz. It pours deep brown with a small light yellow-tan head. The nose is earthy, wood, brett, tangy dark fruits and a touch of malt vinegar. The taste is full of tangy dark fruits, malt vinegar, cola, dried fruits, wood, mild acidity and tart green apple with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tangy. A bit too much malt vinegar. OK sour brown.

Pyrmir (3901) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation, at Deliciés. Reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is sweet and sour, acidity, vinegar and red berries. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet, sour, lots of vinegar, lactic acid, some malt notes and red berries. Really nice beer, reminds me of Duchesse de Borgogne but not as cloyingly sweet.

If it was only for the aroma, I wouldn’t taste this beer. In glass, it looks like a regular glass of cola soft drink. The label announced brown beer but it’s more like a sour red beer. If you like this kind, it may be worth the try.
