on tap at Duckworths (NC)
Pour is golden, lightly hazy, with a moderate size off-white head that is exceptionally durable and leaves fine lacing.
Clear Belgian yeasty note in both tasting and the aroma. After a minute of adjustment to the initially unpleasant but limited Brett.
M: very smooth with ample soft carbonation.
O: American version of this Belgian style that exaggerates the Belgian features. I found this slightly challenging.
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.
