Very opaque, no head.
Noise is strongly of vinegar, some sweetness underneath? Funjy.
Taste its bit nearly as acidic as i would have thought. Sourness is 6 of 10, and much more pronounced on aftertaste. Acidity really lingers.
No real hint of the dry hops, very funky.
This was delightful, not nearly as acidic as the regular gueuze, it seems as if the hops really moderated some of that. The hops are very subdued, I really couldn't detect them all that much, they may have muted some of the vinegar in the nose.
Serving type: on-tap

Wow, a HUGE thanks to merc7186 for breaking this bad boy out.
a 2012 cork date on this bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow with a finger of off white head.
Smells of old damp basement, stinky cheese, and a bit of sweat.
Taste is interesting, a tartness quickly washes over the tongue, followed by a peach and apricot flesh taste. Following this, a quite hit of tartness, and the it fades to almost nothingness. After a few seconds, a cold root cellar flavor emerges, almost like moist underground dirt.
As the beer warms up, the flavor profile opens up, allowing for more fruit, along with the tartness to expand a bit and a subtle hop sharpness as you swallow, which then once again fades to cold dirt basement floor. The mouthfeel also opens up, become soft and smooth.
Overall, a super enjoyable beer, one I would absolutely drink again.
