This study characterized the sensory properties in sensory laboratory and selected chemical compounds contributing to the pleasantness of cold-pressed bilberry and crowberry juices. We found a strong correlation between sourness, acids, and the liking of samples. Moreover, bilberry juices were more pleasant than crowberry juices. Many phenolic compounds correlated either with rough or with soft astringency. Sourness is very important for berry liking and for masking astringency and bitterness of phenolic extracts.
