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
