Thanks for sharing, that is funny. WTF is a Saison Lager, anyway?


literal translation from german: "Seasonal Lager" - this makes sense given their "Frucht Lager" (fruit) and "Gewurz Lager" (spice). I donít think the brewer intends this as a Belgian-style Saison at all, itís just a really poor choice of words when you want to release "seasonal lager" and you call it saison.

Objectivity be damned, when a beer is so bad (or so good) it should incite some type of emotion or use of superlatives. I also had the good(?) fortune of trying this brew and the review is pretty accurate.

All I could think about when I read that 3rd sentence is "you should spend more time with Carls Jr."

The review is admittedly very harsh and I guess one might say unprofessional. I do not deny that.

There were probably other things I could have written to get my point(s) across, but I didnít.

And my reasoning for posting the message wasnít because it offended me or made me angry, but because I found it comical that the brewery representative decided to call me classless and then attack me in a personal, classless manner.


But we are not professional raters...

Iím surprised no other brewer has chimed in, but here ya go... Donít post a review you wouldnít tell the brewer to his face. Iíve had some real douchbag reviews that genuinely had little to do with the beer. They usually end with..."I really am not a fan of this style". If youíre not a fan of the style, why buy the beer. Why subject yourself to an unpleasant experience? My favorite rating began with the words, and I kid you not, "Fuck this beer". Same beer is currently rated 97.I later ran into the gentleman who posted the rating and after letting him sweat it out for an hour or so I gave him another bottle to rate. I didnít belittle or berate him. He did that to himself. Just keep in mind that the beer your rating is the result of someoneís passion, sweat and blood. And there is a secret brewers society that knows where you live... It knows your kids and wifeís schedules. they can and will find you...

I also noted that four people who have posted in this thread have tried the beer, and even though there is only one rating, all four share generally the same opinion. Thatís a little snapshot of real life. For everyone speaking up on a beer site, there are many more consumers out there who will just never buy your beer again and never tell you why.
