Beer Sensory

Cause of Flavour

Commonly occurs in alcoholic beverages due to Brettanomyces yeast contamination. Amino acids such as l-lysine are metabolised along with ethanol and sugars to produce tetrahydropyridines.

Brettanomyces can impact on beer and wine production- altering flavour profiles and impacting on customer perceptions of brands.

Mousy flavours are also created by various bacteria such as lactic acid. These follow a similar metabolic pathway as Brettanomyces yeast.


This flavour standard is one of a number of Brettanomyces based products we have available. Please contact us for more information.

Coffee Sensory

Dry Craker / Mousy

In early 2014, together with two of the coffee industry’s leading organisations, FlavorActiV developed and launched an advanced Calibrating Coffee Sensory Plan to provide cupper training, cupper calibration and coffee tools throughout the coffee supply chain. In 2016 FlavorActiV partnered with World Coffee Research to validate the use of FlavorActiV's GMP Flavour Standards as reference standards within WCR's lexicon.
