The BeerDredge Flavour Wheels present a lexicon of the most common terms used to describe beer’s flavour and drinking characteristics, with the aim of improving beer communication, evaluation and education, whether in the brewery, the bar, or at home. View the Beer Flavour Wheels in the store. The wheels comes as a complete set of six different Beer Flavour Wheels. 


These Flavour Wheels present the foundation of beer’s language. They are collected from, and developed with, industry experts and include source-based flavours (like fruits, baked goods and spices), technical terms and relevant chemical compounds, plus where those qualities might come from. 

The beer lexicon gives words to form a language, but our individual perceptions transform those words into stories and meanings, and for that reason the wheels encourage the drinker to apply their own terms and their own qualifiers, for example, is the lemon aroma like lemon zest, lemon marmalade or lemon cordial.



The wheels are available as a set of six. They are double-sided, so each set is three printed cards. They include the general Beer Flavour Wheel, Hop Flavour and Variety Wheels, Malt Flavour and Variety Wheels, and a wheel for Fermentation & Maturation. The main Beer Flavour Wheel is available as a Notebook and a Poster.
