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.
