Tasting Notes: This hop is grown deep in the heart of the Hallertau region, between Munich & Regensberg. Saphir has spice, fruit and citrus (sweet orange: mandarin & tangerine), with a distinct hoppy tang. It contains a slightly elevated level of myrcene, the essential oil which delivers these subtle citrus notes, which are less prevalent in most other German hop varieties.
Style: Single Hop Ale
