“Phenolic-4-VG, like cloves or carnations”
Certified soft drinks flavour standard used to train professional soft drink tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of phenolic character.
4-Vinyl guaiacol arises through metabolism of plant-derived phenolic compounds by contaminant yeasts and moulds. The compound imparts a spicy note, reminiscent of cloves and German wheat beer.
