Huge thanks to Jerz for hosting an awesome tasting, and for so many generous beer connoisseurs who made the event possible.
Pours a light pink. Large white fizzy head. Pink with a slight orange hue to the edges. Champagne-esque bubbles.
Smells like soured, fresh, razor acidic raspberries. Smells puckering.
Insane, intense flavor. I'm sorry, but this beer is really underrated on this site. Wild puckering raspberry (picked just before ripening), crazy oak, great lingering semi-sweet aftertaste, the bubbles really cap it off. There's some funk/barnyard zest, but it's very mild. This (at least at this point in its aging) is all about the fruit. Bit leathery tannins and some lemon peel lingering about, but you have to fight the raspberries to find it.
Loved it. Pity it's so rare. The mouthfeel is superb.

So I tasted batch 1,2,3, in a spur of the moment, screw it let's pop em taster. The 2010 batch 1 unfortunately was the least best. It seemed to have lost all of its color and was now a pale blonde color. Yeast floaties were everywhere. The aroma was there but mild. Flavor was actually delicious but not nearly as strong as the 2011.
The 2011 was quite a bit better. Still a bit pale in color but the aroma and flavor were quite prominent. A+ on this one. The 2012 was bright pink very aeromatic, flavorful and delicious. The 2013 was tasted on the release and was delicious from what I remember. Very pink
I know this ain't the most detailed review but I enjoyed the 11, 12,13 better than the 10 for what it's worth. I hung onto the 10 since the release and really wanted a 5 year tasting but popped it early. Glad I did. Seems it's prime was a while ago
