I see that Belgium has a lot of brutalist architecture. How the average Belgian reacts to this kind of architecture? I'm asking because in my hometown usually people hate the brutalist master-pieces we have, and their reaction is like: "this architecture is socialistic, it's grey and depressing and blah-blah-blah"... And I don't agree with them at all. I think that brutalism generally (with some exceptions, of course) is very unique and beautiful direction in the architecture movement.

Haha, we don't have that much brutalist architecture. However, most people thin exactly what you say. Ugly grey concrete buildings. they don't get much respect overall.

In Antwerp there are also the "Braemblokken". They are typical housing soicialist housing of the 50ties. I think they are brutalist, however I'm not sure.
The silvertop towers, also located in Antwerp used to be brutalist but they where overhauled.

Here are the silvertop towers before they got a new cladding:

A lot of the ones on this page are beautiful.
I don't agree with the idea that this architecture is depressing, apart from socialist housing blocks which aren't really brutalist, anyway. I see this type of architecture as thee outcome of playing and experimenting with new building methods and materials which would have been unheard of 20 years before them. To imagine how stunning some of these buildings would have looked when brand new, either through abstract concrete forms, or clean repetition/minimalism is amazing, especially when there were nothing but old brick buildings before that.

Here's another photo of that church:
