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.
