GLOSSARY OF WINE AND BEER MAKING
a b c d e f g h i l m n o p r s t v w y

yeasty The odour and flavour of yeast in a wine or beer, but different according to whether the wine or beer is newly fermented, when the yeast is fresh, or whether the yeast has autolysed, as in an older wine. Generally regarded as a fault. See "autolysis". Yeast contributes to the flavour of bottled beers, but may produce taints if the strain is infected or unsatisfactory.
