Hop Data:




Pedigree: This 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.

Maturity: Early season

Yield: Low to Medium

Growth Habit: Vigorous, columnar frame

Disease/Pest Susceptibility: New Zealand is hop disease free

Cone-Structure: Cylindrical, open, loose cones

Aroma: Lemon and lime followed by a background of tropical fruit.

Alpha Acids: 6.5 - 7.5 %

Beta Acids: 5.0 – 5.5 %

Co-Humulone: 29.0 % of Alpha Acids

Storageability: Good

Total Oil: 0.8 ml oil per 100 gram cone weight

Myrcene: 47.7 %

Humulene: 3.6 %

Caryophyllene: 2.0 %

Farnesene: 12.2 %

General Trade Perception: This variety displays similarities to its Saazer parent through its levels of Farnesene typically around the 12 % mark however the higher alpha also makes this hop more desirable in dual purpose applications. It imparts a balanced bitterness as well as a desirable new world “noble” type aroma.

Possible Substitutions: Saaz and Sterling

Typical Beer Styles: 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.
