In collaboration with AROXA™, Cicerone is offering this single-user kit at a subsidized price to provide beer sales and service professionals greater access to sensory training. Each training kit will create approximately 3oz/100ml of spiked beer per flavor capsule. Easy sample mixing instructions are included.

The Single-User Basic Off-Flavor Training Kit contains flavor spikes for six common beer flaws: three that result from the brewing process and three that result from handling or service issues.

These flavor spikes are: 

  • Dimethyl sulfide (DMS)
  • Diacetyl
  • Acetaldehyde
  • Trans-2-nonenal
  • Lightstruck
  • Infection

Purchase of the Single-User Basic Off-Flavor Training Kit includes the following:

  • One set of flavor capsules* that will serve one taster
  • Access to the online guided tasting & training course
  • Step-by-step instructions for mixing flavor capsules
  • Printable tasting mat
  • Review questions
  • Additional reference information about each flavor 

Note: This kit is limited to one purchase per customer at the subsidized $59 price. To purchase multiple single-user kits please contact info@cicerone.org for details. There are no refunds or returns on this product.  Shipments are made on business days only.

*Please note that the powder in your flavor capsules may become compacted during shipping. Kneading or massaging the capsules prior to opening them can loosen the powder so it dissolves readily in your beer.
