This would be an interesting project. Biolog assay maybe, but you cant make an elisa for organic compounds and volatiles like those. Although presence of certain proteins in various beers would be cool, and elis-able. If not mass spec or NMR, you would almost certainly have to use chromatography.

Love it? Isn't that what makes vomit smell like vomit? I've smelled faint whiffs of it before in gueze, but I can't say I loved it.

That would be an awesome doctoral project. So many questions could be asked.

Idk that anyone would be willing to give you enough money to pull it off though.
