Use in brewing

Dual purpose hop.

A fine clean triploid Hallertau bred from the classic Hallertau Mittlefruh variety. A floral, vanilla flavour which is excellent in lighter coloured beers, while the high alpha helps this hop to be useful as a bittering hop.




Developed by the New Zealand DSIR Research Station in Riwaka™ and released in 1988.
Wakatu™ is a triploid variety, with parentage of Mittlefruh and a New Zealand male through open pollination.
