Description

New Zealand Wakatu

A standout for lagers, blending New Zealand character with Hallertau Mittelfrüh parentage.

Breeding/Development: New Zealand. Initially released in 1988 as New Zealand Hallertau, Wakatu was renamed in 2011 after the Maori name for Nelson. It was bred from an open pollination of Hallertau Mittelfrüh by a New Zealand-derived male.

Brewing Application: Aroma. With a pronounced earthy-sweet floral Hallertau character underscored by tropical fruit notes, Wakatu is a standout for any lager style, wheat, or pale hybrid beers. It makes a good supporting hop in blends for hoppy American ales.

Sensory: Moderately intense. Fresh lime zest and citrus oils with a definite Mittelfrüh-style sweetness: clover, hay, honey, and blossoms.

Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
Species: Lupulus

Maturity: Mid-season

Yield: Good
