Sometimes called Saphire, Sapphire, or Hallertau Saphir, this newer German hop is a 2002 release from the Hull Hop Institute. With one of the lowest alpha acid contents in the world, Saphir is always used as an aroma hop. Expect a citrus bouquet of sweet tangerine and a hint of spice. 
 
The low alpha acid range of just 2% to barely 5% minimizes its use as a bittering addition. These characteristics make Saphir a good match for beer styles like Belgian Ales, Wheats, and Witbiers. The best substitution for Saphir hops is other German varietal Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.
