11 ounce goblet - $8.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Hazed, pale golden body with a half-inch of finely-textured, white foam fed by thin but steady bubble streams.
Smell: Sugary influences atop notes of pils malts, spelt, with very light touches of craggled grain. Floral-type hints along with the peppercorn hints. A bit of alcohol. Unripened pears, apples.
Taste: Bolstered pilsner-like maltiness, though I'm told spelt (forgot about him, didn't ya?) is also present. Some grainy touches, a goodly pinch of table sugar. Floral, spicy augmentations from the added peppercorns aided, one would imagine, by the pilfered yeast strain, maybe a bit by the alcohol. Orchard fruitiness, something a little lemony as it warms. Crispish, malty, dry finish with a hint of alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: It's okay. I liked it, didn't love it.
Serving type: on-tap

This is my second time tasting the 2012. The first was at 9 months, this one is now @1.6 years old. It ages very well.
Color is a lovely camel brown, translucent as a strong Belgian should be. Presents with a good head and a fruity nose. The ale has solid body and wonderful mouthfeel, smooth and rich.
The flavor is complex. The initial flavor is wheaty, then fruity. When younger, the spiciness of the peppercorn was more pronounced, now it is a noted after note.
I'll admit that I'm a little sad that this is my last bottle of the 2012. The 2013 is much darker and initially not as balanced, though I look forward to how it ages.

750ml into tulip, decanted for 15 min and reviewed at 45-55 degrees.
Nice 3 finger head over an extremely clear, bright golden body. Plenty of carbonation present. Lots of lacing.
Picked up lots of interesting aromas as it warmed. Ample supplies each of yeast, stone fruit, peppercorn, grass/hay, and a kiss of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy smooth, with just the right amount of cleansing carbonation zest.
Hoping to find a couple more of these soon before they're gone forever! Would work great with any white meat/fish, or most desserts
