Taste search engines like the Aromicon site can make choosing food—or in this case, wine—so much easier. Aromicon, which lists thousands of wines that are intricately categorized acording to region, grape variety, and food pairing, also allows users to find wines by their taste.

Aromicon is in German but the icons make it easy to navigate. You just enter a search for a particular taste (some strange examples include butter, blood, and animal!) and Aromicon will find you the wine that tastes like what you’ve searched. Enhancing your visual experience is a short animation of swirling flavors, such as banana and grapefruit, that shows you what to expect from the taste. Now imagine the taste search engines that could be created for beer, ice cream, curries—anything! Stats for Taste-Based Search Engines Trending: Older & Chilly
