William Matte is a triploid descendant of The English Farg, which gives it desirable seedless properties. It was launched in 1976.
William Matt is known for its soft aroma and bitter taste, which is dominated by soft spices and citrus notes.
After William Matt was put on the market, the planting area rapidly expanded, and soon occupied the first place in the area of hop cultivation in the United States, known as the King of Hops in the United States. With the advent of various side-hops, William Matt has faded, but as a classic, it remains an important part of the entire American beer industry.
William Matte is well suited to brewing English ale, brown ale, American pale ale and raga, and wheat beers tend to produce both the traditional noble hop and the new hop.
