Breeding/Development: A triploid variety bred from Southern Cross and a New Zealand male, Moutere™ was released in 2015.
Brewing Application: Moutere’s high alpha and low cohumulone make it an excellent bittering hop, but brewers will find it difficult to not make use of its pungent tropical aromatics and high oil content for aroma additions. Given its outsized personality, Moutere™ is a big hop for big IPAs, but its tropical flavors are also great for mixed-culture fermentations, wheat beers, and fruited hoppy styles.
Sensory: Intensely tropical and fruity with dominant grapefruit and passionfruit notes, and undertones of spry hay, earthy baking spice, and resinous pine.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
Because demand is higher than supply, purchase of Moutere hops is limited to 160, 1 oz packages per month to each retail location. Please call us if you have any questions.
