Technical characteristics of the Aramis hops variety

Aramis is the product of a 2002 cross between the French variety Strisselspalt and the English variety WGV (Whitbread Golding Variety).
Aramis has very fine aromas, which it has inherited from the Strisselspalt line. It has sweet, spicy notes, with hints of citrus and herbs.
Its aroma and alpha acid content allow it to be used at all stages of hopping.

Map of Aramis hop variety producers

Aramis is grown and harvested in Alsace, France, and is capable of weathering hot summers and cold winters. A sub-continental climate does not adversely affect this variety. Slightly over 50 hectares (124 acres) are in production, with just under 1 hectare or 2.5 acres dedicated to organic cultivation, as of the 2013 harvest.
