Usage: Aroma

Aroma: Distinct spicy, fruit and citrus (tangerine) tones.
Description: Whenever you want to brew a Pilsner or Belgian Witbier that needs a pleasant citrus aroma with a touch of tangerine, Saphir should be the hop of your choice. This variety was recently developed by the Hop Research Center in Hull, and has quickly become a very popular aroma variety among European brewers.

It has negligible amounts of alpha acids, which renders it virtually unusable for bittering, but it’s the aroma Saphir is famous for. It is characterized by a mild citrus bouquet with some hints of fresh tangerine, which is certainly good for making a traditional Helles, Pilsner or Witbier more refreshing and exciting.
  • Alpha: 2 - 4%
