4.13/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
light orange brown with a very nice three finger head of lace and a good amount of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Nice retention only gradually let the head fade away, what was left was a very nice set of concentric side glass rings of lace. Smell was very sour, lots of grapes and other fruits. A bit light on the nose before the sour wrath kicks in. Flavor was very full and robust. Nice yeast filled flavor wrecks your taste buds but calms down considerably on the finish. A huge rush of sour fruit than kicks into overdrive and puckers your lips through the finish. This was a wonderfully unique brew that had a very good flavor and a light fruity feel that really made it shine. I could see why it is rated so high, as it is quite different then anything I had tried in the past.

4/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Hazy golden straw color with a finger and a half of head that dissipates quickly. The nose has some artificial fruit aromas, like cherry kool-aid and grape kool-aid, clean pale malts, a slight vinous quality and some barnyard funk. I get wheat and bread yeast on the front of the tongue with a sharp sour attack on the way down, then a lemony finish and nice bready aftertaste. Drinkable, light, and highly carbonated.

4.25/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Aroma: Tart, sweet.
Appearance: Hazy amber, not much head.
Flavor: Tart and sour up front, once sourness passes over palate get a nice peach/plum flavor, almost like a sour plum wine.
Mouthfeel: Medium, a little thick for a lambic, not as dry as a lambic should be.
Overall: Pretty good beer, not overly sour has a good fruity tart mix going on. I prefer a dryer less fruity gueuze than what this offers. a little too much like a sour plum wine for me.
Serving type: on-tap
