Recently, our sensory team conducted a qualitative Check All That Apply (CATA) sensory approach for the evaluation of Hard Apple Cider market products. The CATA approach is a great way to discover differences in similar products across a category.

In this case, the sensory team took the data from the evaluation and placed it into word clouds to help better illustrate the differences and increase understanding of attributes.

Keep these points in mind when viewing the word clouds for each market product:

  • Weighted visual depiction of attributes generated by panel.
  • Tags are typically single words.
  • Importance of a tag is visually shown with font size and/or color.
  • The larger the font, the more emphasis put on the attribute.

So where does your favorite hard cider stand?
