Enjoyed at Russian River on tap on 2 October 2013 and again on 5 October 2013. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a hazy, pink ruby with a golden glow with 1/2 finger of bubbly pink-tinged head. Sticky lacing is left down the side of the glass.
S: Sweet and tart, this smells of fresh raspberries.
T/M: A biting tart up front leads into an earthy, sweet raspberry character. The finish maintains strong raspberry presence with sweetness as well as a puckering tartness. Mouthfeel is crisp, low-to-medium thickness, with a slight oily feel. Finish is very drying. Carbonation is moderate and perfectly done.
O: This is a delicious beer. I know I've never had a framboise I enjoyed more, and am fairly certain I've never had a sour I enjoyed more. If this beer were easier to get and more consistently available, I'd consume it regularly and be thrilled about it. As it is, it's just a great treat.
Serving type: on-tap

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
