Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Considering the impact of the previous Special Issue we released on the topic of sensory analysis, we are pleased to announce that we are launching a second SI on the topic, entitled “Feature Papers in Sensory Analysis of Beverages Section—2nd Edition”.

The Special Issue will present a collection of feature papers on recent developments in the sensory analysis of beverages, including the impact of raw materials or variations in beverages on their organoleptic properties, the relationship between physicochemical and sensory properties, consumers’ opinion of different intrinsic/extrinsic beverages properties, new methods in the study of the sensory properties of beverages, new beverage developments obtained using a consumer-centered approach, cross-cultural studies on beverage perception or choice, etc.

This Special Issue invites researchers in the field to submit papers that feature original research and review articles. If interested in contributing to this Special Issue, researchers should send the (tentative) title and abstract of their potential paper/review to the guest editor listed below. We are looking forward to receiving your contribution.

Dr. Laura Vázquez-Araújo
Guest Editor

Our perception of food is influenced by various factors, including its sensory properties, the environment in which it is consumed, and the tools we use to consume it (cutlery, glasses, etc.). The purpose of this study was to examine how the texture of the glass used to drink beer affects the perception and emotions generated by the experience. Two tasting sessions were conducted, where participants were served two types of beer (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) in four glasses with different textures. The participants rated liking, the perceived differences in several sensory attributes using a Just-About-Right scale, and the emotions elicited by the drinking experience using a Check-All-That-Apply question. The results indicated that the texture of the container did not affect the participants’ perception of the alcoholic beer. However, for the non-alcoholic beer, participants liked the sample served in the glass with a plain surface over the ceramic glass. Participants’ awareness of drinking a non-alcoholic beer did not affect any of the studied attributes. The results of this study suggested that different textured glasses could be used to differentiate brands, restaurants, etc., from competitors and create a unique identity without significantly affecting the perception of beer properties.
