"trained tasters are no more likely to be accurate in a triangle test — spotting the odd one out among three beers — than anyone else"I know from being on the tasting panel at work at there's more to it than the training. So I had a quick word with someone from our sensory department and here's the basics of how you get on the tasting panel for doing triangle tests:
- First screening: you're given couple of easy triangle tests to carry out to make sure you have a sense of taste.
- For Quality Assurance compliance you're then given 15 triangle tests and must score at least 60%.
- Once on the panel scores are monitored and if you drop below 50% you're dropped from the panel.
