Surprised by this one. It's been a couple years since I've had it fresh, but this is wonderfully well balanced and flavorful. Despite the lightness and low alcohol content, this is quite good after two years. I don't remember the state of the peppercorns in the fresh state, but not much left. What's there is just a nice Belgian ale

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.
