Typical Aroma Profile

 

The outstanding feature is a high aromatic density. Sweet fruit and floral, cool, citrusy and ethereal characteristics interact, thus giving the hops a special flavour profile. The predominant aroma is citrus, accompanied by spicy aniseed and fennel notes. Cool floral characteristics round off the aroma.
