Sensory Training Kits

Sensory Training Kits

Since their introduction in 2009, the Siebel Institute Sensory Training Kits have become the industry standard for accuracy, affordability and ease of use. Plus we have redesigned the Siebel Institute sensory product line-up to offer new benefits including:

The standards are shipped in ready-to-use liquid form, making them as easy to use as possible. Just open the small vial, pour it into a measuring cup, add the correct volume of a light, neutral beer, and you’re ready to sample! Each kit is designed to help tasters build their skills towards understanding beer flavour at a truly professional level.
