Originating from the 18th century, Belgian Coigneau hops have largely disappeared. Light on bitterness, Coigneau hops were often employed in Lambic beers and to a lesser extend, Pilsners.
In 1930, the commercial crop of Coigneau was all but replaced by Green Belle with the last plots disappearing in the 1950’s. Recently however, the variety has been rediscovered from within the archives at Wye College in Kent, England. Plans exist to resurrect the variety.
