Saphir has a refined sweet, mild citrus nose with a hint of tangerine, and is especially yummy in Belgian Whites as well as Pilsners and Lagers. Low alpha acid content and very low cohumulone. Good vigor and yield. Despite its low alpha acids, it is said to be fruity, flowery, with a bit of tang. Very good resistance to verticulum wilt and good resistance to both varieties of mildew.
