2012 reserve.

Great beer, personally my favorite point is with 2 years age on it. Really allows the fresh cherries to meld in and add some nice depth to the flavor but thy are definitely still there. I get a great sherry flavor too going with the age.

If you like the more fruity element drink fresh. If you don't mind losing a little fresh fruit to get some more flavors and rounded out beer go for 2 years. I had the 2010 reserve when buying the 2014 and thought it had fallen off considerably.
