Aroma
Alpha Acid7-8
A triploid aroma type developed by New Zealand’s HortResearch. Motueka hop was bred by crossing a New Zealand breeding selection (2/3) with Saazer parentage (1/3). First selected by a notable Belgian brewery lead to this variety being called Belgian Saaz and later shortened to B-Saaz so as not confuse country of origin.

First impressions are a very lively and lifted lemon and lime followed by a background of tropical fruit. Motueka imparts a balanced bitterness as well as a desirable new world noble type aroma.
An excellent hop in many applications from first kettle additions through to late gift. This hop offers a unique aroma and flavour making it suitable for producing bigger more traditional style Lagers, especially Bohemian Pilsener. Excellent when employed in multiple additions from a single hop bill and sits well on the palate to balance speciality malt sweetness. An excellent variety for Belgian Ales and gives a real edge to Cask Bitter.

Typically employed in traditional Pilsener styles this Saazer cultivar has also found application in many traditional European and English Ales styles as well. The weight of oil to alpha integrates it fully with higher gravity types and will counter both malt sweetness and body.
