Willamette WILL

United States

Willamette, the triploid daughter of Fuggle, was released as a U.S. aroma variety in 1976 from the U.S.D.A. breeding program in Oregon. The variety is characterized by a low alpha acids content, mild aroma similar to Fuggle and medium cone yields. It is more difficult to grow than most varieties.

Typical Aroma Profile

 

Willamette shows a predominance of resiny, woody aromas of incense, along with red berries, augmented with fleeting nuances of cream caramel. Furthermore, overtones of citrus, green fruits and floral notes give this variety a remarkable flavour profile.
