... but the glass I had well after, after it had been breathing for maybe 3 hours, was quite good. It has a nice cherry, plum and tobacco thing going on. I'd call this great value for 17 bucks, but I think the 97 rating on the sticker is a bit much.

OK, they do? At any rate I believe a percentile ranking divides all the beers eg. of a specific 'style' into 100 groups ('percentiles') - so if there are 18,000 Witbiers then divide that / 100, and there are 180 top-rated Witbiers in the 100th percentile, the next best 180 in the 99th percentile etc... That's all it is, so '100' doesn't even mean it's among the best or highest-rated beer on the site if a lot of people on RB care far less for Witbier than, say Imperial Stout. It's misleading.
Ratebeer 'Scoring' is based on a scale from 0.5 to 5.0 points. This is probably more direct & meaningful data, and scrupulous vendors should quote this instead of cool-looking high Percentile numbers out of context. Nobody should care that your Belgian Quad is a style in a high overall percentile compared to Pilsner.
And to rehash, 'overall' percentiles on RB mean that styles which attract more interest get higher Percentiles relative to all other beers on the site - irrespective of style. Less popular styles get beat up when comparing apples to oranges this way. So you can't look at 'overall' percentile rankings of Kölsch and Helles lager because it likely won't tell the meaningful story of those beers.but what am I gonna do? Not drink? C'mon.
If you grab a carafe, do a high-pour into that thing and shake it around... might expedite the oxygen getting in that juice! That's life... nothing good is easy.
