    probably should since you have not had C!tra or the collab beer from NZ in those cases.

    If everyone had tried Citra they would have voted for it.

    You could do it two ways I guess.
    1.Abstain from voting
    2. Consider this ? Do you need to try a Mikkeler Monks Brew having already tried Westvleteren 12 to know its inferior ? Also, having had Saison Dupont, I would have said LA Sirene Saison was not as good without even trying it, and guess what ? it wasn't. I know these are the same types of beer as opposed to what we are doing. You may also consider the styles, cause we tend to go for certain styles anyway. I would always take a Saison over an DIPA, IPA or PA, I just don't like em all that much in the same way that people don't like sours.

    At the end of the day the sun will still come up, so I guess its up to you

    dan - be careful accepting beer gifts from brenden.
    it starts with one beer, then another, then before you know it he is giving you heaps of free beer and you have lost the ability to go into a store or bar and purchase a beer of your own volition

    don't say i didn't warn ya : )

    It would be nice to see all the knock results from the last time this was done. Do you have them on hand Pat or is that in the 'too hard' basket?

    Just to compare and contrast, either our tastebuds or the state of the industry in general. The fact that the winner of last time didnt even get a mention this time is curious tis all.
