Hop: Strisselspalt


Strisselspalt is from the Alsace area of France and is one of the few varieties of hops from France. It is an European land variety hop - one that grows naturally in the area. The hop seems to start appearing around 1855.

Strisselspalt has a pleasant aroma which, tied with low alpha acid and co-humulone, makes it a great substitute for noble hops.
