Ultrasonic Waves Can Enhance The Taste And Aroma Of Your Beer
Anyone who’s ever poured a beer knows to carefully pour down the side of the glass to minimize the head on our beer. The makers of the Sonic Foamer, a bubble-inducing beer gadget, are on a mission to change that.

What is it?
The Sonic Foamer is a coaster-like gadget that has one main purpose, to add a big head of foam on to the top of any beer. Just like when you sloppily pour beer straight to the bottom of your glass. You’re probably wondering why anyone would want that. According to Sonic Foamer, most of what we taste is actually what we smell. The Sonic Foamer uses the power of ultrasonic frequencies to boost the aroma of your beer, which then improves the flavour.
How Do I Use It?
To use, simply pour two teaspoons of water on the tray, put your glass of beer on it, and push the button to activate the ultrasonic frequency waves. This produces the blast of bubbles that creates a thick foam on your beer. It’s foolproof.
You can also use the Sonic Foamer multiple times on one beer. This means you can actively manage your beer head throughout the entire drinking process to maintain the best possible taste. Warning: this could become addicting.
The makers of the Sonic Foamer advise to use a larger glass so there is enough room for the foam. We thought that was common sense but the Sonic Foamer’s users are people that have probably had a couple, so we get why they mentioned that. They also advise to always use a cold beer when foaming because as beer heats up, the gases can expand which can cause your beer to overflow and nobody wants that.
Do I Really Need This?
I’m still not sure if I’m convinced that this product is a necessity, but I’ll have to admit that it is pretty cool to watch. It’s like you got front row seats to a magic show. Michael, from A Perfect Pint Beer Blog, tested the Sonic Foamer using a Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Sierra Nevada Kellerweiss. He discovered that the Sonic Foamer does in fact do what it claims but is still unsure that ultrasonic frequencies are a better method than swirling your beer in your hands every now and then.
