Nectaron®

Nectaron®


(9.5-11.5% AA)

Intense tropical passionfruit and citrus aroma characters.

Over successive commercial brewing trials in styles such as Strong Pale Ales and India Pale Ales, Nectaron® has displayed high levels of tropical fruit characters of pineapple and passionfruit as well as stone fruit (peach) and citrus (grapefruit)

Breeding

A triploid aroma type developed in collaboration with New Zealand’s Plant & Food Research. Nectaron® Brand HORT4337 is a full sister to Waimea.

Selection

First impressions are an intense tropical fruit and citrus aroma during selection.

Brewing

Nectaron® is at home in any modern beer style where punchy tropical fruit characters are desirable. Its distinctive passionfruit/pineapple character provides an upfront sensation of sweet tropical fruits and it has a unique biotransformation that is noticeably different between both American and English ale yeast strains. Nectaron® shines best when used late or when dry hopping. Not for the faint hearted, Nectaron® delivers a consistent dose of high quality tropical hop aroma every time.

Applications

Lagers, Pale Ales, IPA's, NEIPA and modern beer styles.
