In alcoholic beverages this flavour is caused by yeast fermentation and is found in many beers. It can also occur due to poor hygiene - ethyl butyrate is also produced by various microorganisms. Ethyl Butyrate can also be enhanced by the presence of butyric acid - again from poor hygiene. Non alcoholic beverages should not see this flavour occur unless part of a product's flavouring. The presence of Ethyl Butyrate can indicate bacterial contamination of sugar and syrups.

The sweet, slightly sharp, fruity aromatic associated with pineapple.
FlavorActiV's GMP Flavour Reference Standard Pineapple has undergone evaluation by the same research team behind the first World Coffee Research Lexicon, and has been approved for inclusion within the latest World Coffee Research Lexicon as a validated coffee flavour reference.
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. FlavorActiV's Pineapple is of the 24 validated flavour reference standards.
