A high alpha hop with distinctive tropical, grapefruit and passion fruit characters (17.5-19.5 % AA)
Moutere (formerly known as "Brooklyn") is a New Zealand bred triploid variety with parentage from the New Zealand variety Southern Cross and a selected New Zealand male. Developed at New Zealands Plant and Food Research and released in 2015. The essential oil profile displays characteristics of intense fruit, citrus and resinous pine.
Delivers intense fruity oils with top notes of baking spice and sweet hay. Selected on good agricultural performance and late maturity this variety is currently the most recently selected from the Hops with a Difference programme.
Moutere is a big hop delivering high alpha acid with a generous weight of oil while its lower cohumulone provides a soft well-structured but solid bitterness. Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit.
