Emerging in 2005, Bouclier is a cross between Alsace-grown Strisselspalt and a wild male from Wye, Kent. It is unclear however if this variety was first developed in the UK or across the Channel in France.
The aroma of the cones is herby and grassy with a sniff of spice. In a brew, Bouclier extracts a citrusy and floral character – great for adding a French kiss to traditional English styles.
