Rakau™

Use in brewing

Dual purpose hop.
Rakau™ is a standout hop throughout the selection process due to its inherent intensity of aromas lifted from a heavy weight of oils. Selectors generally are agreed that the dominant fruitiness is that of fresh stone fruit such as apricot.
Great results over several brewhouse applications have been seen with sensory panels scoring uniformly high on the quality of bitterness as well as unique fruity flavours and aromas, once described as “The whole orchard”
