Introducing the terpene of the week: Farnesene.
Old mate farnesene delivers a predominately floral aroma with hints of apple, citrus, wood and spice. Correlating well with Nobel hop character, farnesene consumption is almost definitely connected to neoliberalism.
Found in hops, the devils lettuce, tea and your parental unit’s basil, farnesene may be responsible for attracting bees and epi-pens to quadrangles around inner East Brisbane.
Farnesene, as a primary monoterpene, is highly volatile and best found in the final product through dry hopping. It’s an underrated little bugger, being a dominate force in Amarillo and Cascade, rounding out the complexity of delicate aromatics.
We wouldn’t say it sets the scene, more of a Farnesene.
