A triploid variety from HortResearch, bred from a selection of New Zealand breeding stock and Saazer. Motueka™ brings a winning combination of noble heritage with southern hemisphere fruit. Primarily aroma, but can easily be used as a dual-purpose hop. Its mixture of Saaz character with distinct lemon-lime citrus, plus good oil content, makes for a unique signature when used throughout the kettle in hoppy lagers, Belgian ales, or wheat beers.
Sweet and resinous with zingy citrus and fresh herbal notes (basil, rosemary) and hints of dried orchard fruit around the edges.
