Aramis comes from Alsace, a traditional hop production area in France. It takes The French classic Strisselspalt as the female parent and the British WGV as the father parent. Aramis began to hybridize in 2002 and was put on the market in 2009. It is a hop from the Comptoir Agricole breeding program.
The aroma is similar to the original, with slightly sweet spice, subtle citrus and herbal notes, but with higher alpha acid, more oil and more alcohol. It is considered an upgraded version of Strisselspalt.
Alamex is suitable for the whole saccharification process including FWH and swirl. It is widely used in the brewing of raga, Pilsen, Cython, wormwood, wheat and north French style lager. Now more and more people are trying to use Aramis as an auxiliary hop for dry casting.
