Germany. Bred from German Spalt, Slovenian Styrian Aurora, and a Huell breeding line. Developed to have high aroma capacity, be drought-tolerant, and a pest resistant hop.
Aroma. The classic hoppy aromas of Diamant’s profile make it extremely favorable for lager beers with a fine hop aroma. Offers a “classic” German hop character when used for late additions in lagers, Kölsch, Altbier, and similar beer styles. Diamant was developed and designed to have a higher oil content, and offers a high transfer of aromatic compounds in the brewing process.
Diamant offers spicy herbal character with floral, citrus, tropical fruits, and berries.
