Default Hilarious Misinformation

So for work I'm going to be taking the WSET test. It's a certification for Beer, Spirits and Wine. We were offered a training course through one of our vendors, that the vendor developed.

Here's a few of the gems that I picked out of the beer section.

Did you know that Lambics are defined as "Wheat beers with fruit blended into them. Usually very low carbonation."?

There's only 5 Trappist Breweries.

A decoction is where you remove some of the wort and heat it up.

And my favorite "Dark beer will always be stronger than light beer".

Seriously, totally call them out on the bs! They are spreading that around like the flu if it's part of a training course. That is not good.

Trappist Breweries? I think 7 are actually recognized. They're not far off on that one:
Achel, Chimay, Koningshoeven, Orval, Rochefort, Westmalle and Westvleteren. Lots of "Abbey" beers, though.

There used to be only 5 trappist breweries. At the time of publication for "Brewmaster's Table", Achel and Koningshoeven were not Trappist breweries.

Not to worry. I just shot out an email. I just got a good laugh out of the dark beer one. I wonder if they know that my dark mild has 3.5%ABV and that my IPA that's fermenting will end up at about 6%.

Call me crazy, but a decoction in it's simplest form is removing some of the wort and heating it up...

I just read an article a few days ago that they are about to certify another Trappist Brewery.

Here's the only decent mention I can find without more time to search:

You're crazy... and correct.
