Moutere, previously known as experimental hop HORT 0605, is a relatively new hop variety that was first introduced in 2015 by New Zealand's hop breeding program under the name "Brooklyn", but later renamed. It was named after the Moutere Hills region in the northern part of New Zealand's South Island, where it was first cultivated. Moutere hops are known for their intense tropical fruit aroma and flavor, with notes of passionfruit, guava, and citrus.
Moutere hops have a high oil content, which contributes to their unique flavor profile. They also have a high alpha acid content, making them a versatile hop that can be used for both bittering and aroma. Moutere hops are typically used in pale ales, IPAs, and other hop-forward beer styles. Brewers appreciate the complexity and depth of flavor that Moutere hops bring to their beers, and they are becoming increasingly popular among craft breweries around the world.
