Motueka offers moderate Alpha Acids (6-8%) and has a unique flavour and aroma of fresh tropical limes that can be incorporated into a number of styles. This refreshing and zesty character is perfectly suited for single-hopped IPAs, but also shines in Belgian styles like Saisons and Wits. Can also be used in thirst-quenching Pilsners and Lagers. First impressions are a very lively and lifted lemon and lime followed by a background of tropical fruit. This variety displays similarities to its Saazer parent through its levels of Farnesene typically around the 12 % mark however the higher alpha also makes this hop more desirable in dual purpose applications. It imparts a balanced bitterness as well as a desirable new world “noble” type aroma.
