Origin: Germany. Released in 2002 by the Hop Research Center in Hüll with a combination of  “noble” hop characteristics with good cultivation properties.

Usage: Aroma. As a higher-yielding, more disease-resistant alternative to Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Saphir can be used in many of the same formulations: Belgian ales, Weissbiers, farmhouse ales, as well as traditional continental lagers. 

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Strongly but pleasantly spicy with sweet, fruity overtones (citrus, red berries). Mild and approachable in the “noble hop” sense. 

Alpha Acid: 2 – 4.5%
Beta Acid: 4 – 7%
Total Oil: .8 – 1.4 mL/100g
