Breeding/Development: Germany. A daughter of Cascade released in 2012 and bred specifically to answer the needs of American craft beer styles.

Brewing Application: Aroma, particularly whirlpool and dry hopping to take full advantage of the very high myrcene fraction. With its pronounced tropical profile, Hallertau Blanc has strong affinity for many of the same styles as southern hemisphere hops: IPA, Belgian ales, wheat beer, and Brett fermentations.

Sensory: Moderate to strong featuring pineapple, gooseberry, white grape, fresh lemongrass stalk, and passionfruit. Reminiscent of many recent Southern Hemisphere varieties, but with a cleaner, less “dank” profile.

Maturity: Late

Yield: 1000 – 1400 lbs/acre
