The hops variety Tettnang Tettnanger (aka Schwetzinger and Deutscher Frühopfen) began as a land race in Germany, very likely from a Saazer hop. Tettnanger is also a name for Swiss, US and Australian varieties as well, but the foreign breeds are mixed with Fuggle and not considered a true Tettnanger. The true Tettnang Tettnanger is grown only around its native village of Tettnang in Germany. It is considered a noble aroma hop and has been compared to both Hallertauer and Saazer, but Tettnanger has notably more farnesene content than Hallertauer. They carry a distinct floral and spicy aroma, and, despite the low alpha acids (up to 5%), they are considered to have a balanced “hoppy flavor.” Low yielding.

Santiam hails from the Swiss Tettnanger and the Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. It has very good vigor and yield, but not-so-good storage stability. It has a nice balance of myrcene, humulene, and carophyllene with a whopping 14-15.9% farnesene content. This gives it a nice, soft, herbal yet peppery-spice aroma character. It carries lower alpha acids with nearly 1:1 alpha/beta acid ratio. Used to embellish the aroma of India and American Pale Ales.
