    I've noticed a small trend of people looking for RR 750's. Are these old rare one's to begin with or any 750's? Like Temp b.4 trades pretty well, does this translate to old Consecration or Sanctification? Or specific to Temp.

    Cheers,
    Kyle

    Seems like they all trade well (rarer/older/better format bottle for cellaring/etc.) but the B4 Temp in particular seems desired as a very good batch for drinking in addition to those other factors.

    Temptation B4 has hit its peak. That's really all it is.

    Not every beer hits its stride at the same time. Even RR sours have different peak periods, and it even varies by batch.

    Beatification batch 003 pulls some pretty heavy weight too.

    I've craved Temptation B4 since summer came and I went to all flip flops, all the time. I suggest everyone try it.

    I've had 750's of Consecration batch 001 and 003 recently and can honestly say I have around zero inclination to search those out. I think they are past their prime, and I would much rather drink some of the newer bottles of Consecration.

    Temptation batch 004 and Beatification batch 003 are two beers that I would pretty much have perpetual inclination to search out based on how amazing they are tasting recently.

    How far off would I be if I wanted to trade my Temptation b4 750 for a Beatification b3 750?

    My guess would be 2/2.5 Temptation 004 or more for 1 Beatification 003?

    Beatification 003 is a whale. Temptation 004 can be gotten much easier.

    Definitely not worth it, also. Temptation 004 is currently a superior beer. Beat 003 might overtake it later, but it's not at its best right now.

    i opened my 004x2 last night and it was phenomenal. i have one 004x5 left, debating whether i should hold onto it or try for the Beat.

    You would have to add quite a bit for the 003...

    Maybe the best AWA I've ever had. If not #1, top 3.
