Alpha Acid 4.0 - 5.0%. Noble aroma that is pleasant and spicy, it is the major landrace variety in the region of the Tettnang in far southern Germany. It has a common ancestry with Saaz but a unique profile due to its provenance. It is a classic European noble hop. Tettnang’s complex and delicate flavors make it ideal for traditional German lagers, particularly Bavarian styles, Weissbiers, and German or Belgian ales. The flavor and aroma is a mix of floral, fruity, herbal and spicy - fresh herbs, grass, dried flowers, citrus peel, black tea. It can have a bit more intensity than Hallertau but with as much balance.
