Probably from Belgium.
No I'm serious.

When I was in NZ just after the 2004 harvest I visited the hop board and tried to buy some NZ Saaz. The full 2004 had already been sold. And I think most of it went to a brewery in Belgium.

So get this I bought Czech Saaz from the NZ Hop board. Go figure.

Sounds like a wacky hop market.

I think it is just a very popular hop, and they can't grow enough of it yet.
Here is a quote from the NZ Hop board.

Doc

This newly developed triploid variety has not been officially named yet, and is referred to as "B" Saaz because a prominent Belgian brewery liked it after doing brewing trials. Already making a name for itself as a triploid substitute for the traditional Saaz Saaz, this hop is now used in a mainstream beer by an international brewing company. An absolutely unique Saaz-like flavour has made this hop very sought after by brewers. This new hop variety has created a unique citrus flavour in several beer styles
