Noble and complex for classic European lagers and ales.

Breeding/Development: Germany. The major landrace variety in the region of the same name  in far southern Germany, Tettnanger has common ancestry with Saaz but a unique profile due to its provenance. It is a classic European noble hop.

Brewing Application: Aroma. Tettnanger’s complex and delicate flavours make it ideal for traditional German lagers, particularly Bavarian styles, Weissbiers, and German or Belgian ales.

Sensory: Shifting and evolving mix of floral, fruity, herbal and spicy – fresh herbs, grass, dried flowers, citrus peel, black tea. Can have a bit more intensity than Hallertau but with as much balance.

Maturity: early

Yield: 1300 kg/h
