Beer Sensory

Cause of Flavour

This off flavour is imparted due to flavour carryover between the production run of different beverages.

Flavour carryover occurs due to poor CIP systems and rinsing processes. Residue of other flavours is left over and will contaminate subsequent processes and liquids introduced.


Grape is one of a number of flavour carryover references we produce.
Please contact us for more information about these and how to avoid introducing other carry over off flavours into your products.

Coffee Sensory


The sweet, fruity, floral, slightly sour, musty aromatic commonly associated with grapes.

FlavorActiV's GMP Flavour Reference Standard Grape 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 Grape is of the 24 validated flavour reference standards.
