4.83/5 rDev +5.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: Very nice amber color. Slight tint of burgundy. Very thin fine off white head that dissipated fast. No lacing really.
S: Currants, funk, feet, earth. Oak and fresh cider apples and sour cherries. Maybe a pinch of cave aged gouda at the very end?
T: Obviously, the first thing that hits you is the sour characteristics of this crazy beer. It has a wild and complex array of sour apple, malt, pinot noir, funk fusion going on. The finish is clean and tight.
M: It's not as tannic as you would think and leaves the sides of your tongue alone. It's extremely palatable and smooth to drink.
D: If Flanders and the Willamette Valley (Pinot growers) had a love child, this would be it. Very drinkable!

4.68/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Amber in color but has a red hue to it. Not too cloudy, nice 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly. Not much lacing.
S - Funk, pinot noir and cherries. Some alcohol seeping through.
T - Gobs of sour and tart hit your first! Midway you do get the presence of cherries. The dry, wine like finish leaves you wanting more.
M - Crisp, clean, dry, effervescent.
O - My first real foray into sours. It's a treat! Not a malt bomb or a hop bomb, but a cherry tart bomb! And it's just so drinkable with the cherries shining through but not being overpowering. Loved it!

3.75/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Light ruby & copper. Pours a small white head.
Aroma: Strawberries, wild yeast, very fruity. A little bit sweet.
Taste: Quite typical lambic style, but too sweet and fruity for my taste.
Mouthfeel: A little sparkly, medium-high carbonation, medium bodied.
Overall: Nothing special in my opinion. Decent enough beer, and it did grew on me a little as I went on, but many of its Belgian cousins are vastly superior.
Serving type: on-tap
