Thanks to eyebereej for this one! I'm very excited to try it. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a CCB snifter glass.
A: Pours a relatively clear, pinkish-red, with a quite pink small head. Medium visible carbonation. I was going to give this a 5.0 for appearance, but the brewer missed the mark on the Barbie pink of the breast cancer ribbon.
S: Surprisingly low presence on the nose. Funky, sour, sweet, with some overripe fruit aroma.
T: Fruity, puckering sour, big raspberry flavors with Brett and Lacto funkiness. Some wood, oak to dry it out a little further. The hang is funky sour, but not overdone and it fades more quickly than some sours. Very tasty.
M: Medium body, sweet and sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol very well-hidden. Good carbonation.
O: Very very tasty. Not my favorite RR sour, but I'm very impressed. Would drink this anytime it's available.

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
