Willamette, the triploid daughter of Fuggle, was released as a US aroma variety in 1976 from the USDA 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; however, it is still widely grown in all U.S. growing areas where it has largely replaced Fuggle. It’s flavour profile can include citrus, elderberry, incense, caramel and curry. Excellent in combo with Cascade for pale ales.
