Strisselspalt Hops

Strisselspalt hops are French hops.  Who knew?  After I created a profile for Hersbrucker hops, I learned that an alternative to that variety is the Strisselspalter.   It appears to be a good finishing hop.  Here’s the details of my research.

Origin: The Alsace region of France

Aroma: Medium intensity, pleasant, hoppy.

Alpha Acid: Between 3 to 5%

Typical Usage: Aroma

Beer Styles: It seems like there was one source that was repeated all over the ‘net…but I would say light colored lagers and ales. How about a Bière de Garde?
