3.58/5 rDev -13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Big fluffy white 1.5 finger head that sticks around for a while with no to little lacing. Damnation pours a heavenly Golden Yellow(no pun intended). Since the beer is fermented in the bottle, I had to be careful not to pour the sediment into the glass.
I like the instructional cork, unfortunately I didn't have a chalice handy and was forced to use a Weizen glass (at least it wasn't a tumbler).
Aroma: Hoppy and yeasty with a fruity, citrus, and spice background.
Taste: Yeasty with a banana and spices flavor. Fruity and sweet. As the beer warms up, a bit of bitterness comes through.
Palette: Light, crisp, and dry. Decent carbonation. Pretty easy to drink. Despite the higher ABV content, its a smooth drink with little notice to the alcohol.
Overall: Not a bad beer. It was refreshing and interesting, but with all I had hear about RRBC I had hoped for more.
Serving type: bottle

4.35/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
