Batch 2 courtesy of BrewerB, shared with muskabeatz. Thanks again Brian!

This beer pours the brightest cherry red in color, a little light in body with a lot of carbonation but only a slight pinkish head. It is bright, bright red. The nose is sour and has great acidity. It features a nice balance of tart and sweet raspberry with just enough fruit. There really isn't too much yeast character at all. It drinks almost an off dry due to the presence of juicy raspberry. It is just fantastic. This is such a great and easy drinking raspberry sour. I place it at the very top, above LP Framboise. This is one of my all time favorites.

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
