Developed at the Agriculture Research Service in Corvallis, Oregon, Santiam hails from parent varietals Swiss Tettnanger, German Hallertauer Mittelfrüher and a slightly more distant Cascade (US)-derived cultivar. It was released to the brewing public in 1997 and features a well-balanced oil profile.
The resultant tasting notes are a pleasantly soft, herbal essence alongside floral and fruity aromas with hints of pepper and spice. Santiam is often used by brewers to embellish the aroma of India and American Pale Ales.
