Canadian Redvine

Canadian Redvine, with its dense and profuse rhizomes, high vigor, excellent yield and disease resistance makes it seem like an interesting prospect but with such a high cohumulone content and low alphas, it is not widely used. It is said to impart mild flavors of cherry, berries, pine and even citrus.

It is rarely used on its own in a brew. When grown, its ability to be sown late has seen Canadian Redvine used as a quick plant in response to disease disasters. Its exact parentage is unknown.
