Served as part of a sampler tray at their brewpub. This was an unusual beer to say the least, and one that is hard for me to rate. The waiter informed me it was a Gueuze, and this same batch of beer was to be used as the sourness to create their future fruit lambic. Untypical for a Gueuze, this beer poured a cloudy and very dark brown color and was topped with a thin head of foam. The aroma gives off some sour malt and is a bit tannic. Wow! The taste is puckering sour. Like a drink made from sour patch kids candy. Not much of a malt presence and the sourness shakes you to the bone. It’s like unripe cherry tarts. The sourness became more bearable as the beer warmed up. Interesting and pleasantly tart. Sort of refreshing, although seems lacking or better yet, unfinished. I really want to taste the dark lambic this is going to be made into. (850 characters)

King of Prussia, PA location. This tasting represents the first half of the bright beer tank. Once that has been depleted, raspberries and cherries will be added to the beer to complete its Belgian character. As is, it displays a somewhat hazy dark brown body with mahogany glints at the base of the glass. A short but creamy head of light tan foam receeds to just a collar and leaves no lacing. The nose is cocoa-ish with some subtle hints of tartness. It's not exactly what I'd expect of the style but it's nice, and once the fruit is added it should change greatly. The body is medium-light and its fine carbonation is lightly zesty across the palate. The flavor displays a distinct milk chocolate/cocoa character that's followed by a flash of fruit as its tartness comes to the front. It finishes tart and dry with some lingering reminders of the milk chocolate drizzled malt that came before. The bitterness is appropriately unnoticeable as the tartness balances the maltiness in its own way. It's interesting, satisfying, and enjoyable. Overall... very nice! But as an Oud Bruin it lacks authenticity. Hopefully the addition of fruit and an additional period of aging will do wonders for it. (1,197 characters)

A brand new offering at RB in King of Prussia,pours a murky brown with some reddish tinit with a light creamy head,the arom is malty with some roasted tints to it with some sour cherry-like aromas as well.A pretty complex beer it starts out mildly sour with some mild spiciness and ends with a hint of chocolate malt that lingers nicely after swallowing.Hey this was better than what I thought I have had only a few of this style and this matched up well with the others. (471 characters)
