Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"that Oenology cannot exist."

Exactly. That's what I am talking about. When you try to break an experience down to its components, you have lost the experience. Beer is an 'ahhh' experience and you know when you have a great beer when you get it. Otherwise, trying to insert some cognitive analysis into tasting beer invariably distorts it.

You Europeans here are all alike: you believe that you're a think tank capable of resolving everything including taste through some kind of analysis.

And don't ask me why I bother trying to teach you. It is just impossible.
