SnV

Slight floral with a spice like note followed by a bright yeast/hops taste

7 day steep

Increase in strength. The spice note, to me, is almost like an all spice type of flavour mixed with hints of pine and citrus, this is followed by a unique mild floral, the bottom note is a bright yeasty like flavour.

14 day steep

No change

33 day steep

No change

Suggested usage

I’d use as a main 0.75%-1.75%, Background 0.25%-0.75%, Accent 0.1%-0.25%

I’d use with Fruits, Tobacco, Chocolate, Beverages and some Florals.

Summary

Due to the uniqueness of this flavour it is hard to place this within a recipe, however used low this may be useful to add a slight bitterness to mixes and may work well as a bittering agent for tobaccos. May pair well with some herbs and spices such as Rosemary and Ginger.

Flavorah recommended usage - Start at 1%
