It features aromas of tangerine, orange, marmalade, apricot, magnolia, geranium, sweet notes, floral touches, red berries, herbal tones all with slender spicy notes. It has a balanced bitterness with a spicy fruity flavor.

Overall it is a very well balanced hop that contains woody vegetal notes of cognac, leather and celeriac acompanied by fruity strawberry aroms and tart nuances of citrus. The woody character predominates the hop flavor and aroma but is combined with sweet notes of caramel, toffee, vanilla and yogurt.
