NZ Hops Ltd Hop Variety Moutere



A high alpha hop with distinctive tropical, grapefruit and passionfruit characters.


Moutere™ Brand HORT0605 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.


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, light tropical fruit and passionfruit.


Moutere is an incredible NZ bittering hop, providing a soft hoppy bitterness that melts in the mouth or as a late addition, its high oil content and resinous character is best seen in classic beer styles including Lagers, Pale Ales and stronger IPA's or NEIPAS.
