Hallertau has lineage back over 100 years. Great for German beers as well as Belgian ales. An original noble hop. Susceptible to disease, it has been the center of many offspring.
Saphir contains one of the lowest alpha acid contents in the world, therefore it is always used as an aroma hop. A German release in 2000 it contains a fruity profile, unlike many German hop varietals. Saphir was bred at the Hop Research Center in Hüll, Germany. Similar to much of the hop breeding in Germany it was sought as a substitute to Hallertau to be more disease resistant.
