Typical Aroma Profile

 

Named after a high peak in the Caucasus Mountains, Kazbek is equally outstanding thanks to the lemon-fruity character of its hop aroma. The predominant aromas are grapefruit, lemon and lime, accompanied by sweet fruits, such as pineapple, passion fruit, peach and watermelon, with light top notes of honey and cream caramel. These aromas also occur in the raw hops where they are joined by nuances of raspberries, orange, ginger, elderberries and chocolate. Light notes of lemon balm add particular emphasis to the overall aroma.
