GTAEgeek (1922) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle shared by John Sukroo at Ale Alpharetta. Hazy orange, with no real head. Harsh orange peels, light funk, and horseblankets. Very dry, a little funky. Medium, hard, and salty. This is a mellow, very dry and funky beer. Not much complexity, but not bad.

Cybercat (5111) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours hazy, nigh opaque apricot with an eggshell head. Sour fruit dominates he aroma while letting hints of malt and yeast to peek through. Flavor is quite sour, fruity with a woody underpinning and subtle malt notes. Texture has good body and plenty of fizz. More tart than sour, may be a good beer to introduce the uninitiated to sours.

willisread (2453) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo under the name Udagawa Spontan. Nice big gooseberry aromas with some young strawberry and grape as well. Quite tart on the palate, but not enamel-melting by any means. Creamy mouthfeel. Good tartness that lingers on the finish. Quite enjoyable. Very nice gueuze for the price.
