5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsHersbrukerSurprised by the low AA but a nice solid Noble hopFebruary 19, 2016hersbruckerI love these hops. Excellent clean flavor and aroma. I use in lagers and mild ales.January 9, 2014Low in AA, good for Blonde and Belgian alesVery good flavor and aroma, one of the better finishing hops. They have a flowery aroma. I haven't had much luck dry hopping with them, so I stick to the last 15 minutes of the boil.January 2, 2014The aroma is pleasant and good in a lagerFor making German style lagers this is a good aroma hop. I add it after flame out when I'm whirl pooling the beer.December 16, 2013hersbruckerI love these hops! I use them in German beer styles, wheats and rye beers. Makes a nice pleasant aroma and a mellow flavor addition.November 23, 2013a good choice for lagersI use Hersbrucker for its flowery aroma. It's just right and not too strong or mild. I use them for flavoring during the last 10 minutes. I don't suggest them for bittering though.October 18, 2013Mild - appropriate for blonde alesHersbrucker is mild compared to some of the in your face American hops. The aroma is mild and flowery. The taste is slightly fruity. I used it as a first wort hop and the taste was good, though there was no aroma from that addition.July 24, 2013Great for German/Belgium Beers.This is the hops to go with if you are trying to get a traditional German/Belgium beer. It isn't the best for bittering, I would personally go for magnum for that, but what it lacks in the bittering category it more than makes up in it's ability to add an exceptional aroma/flavor.July 13, 2013Uber AllesThis is a wonderful dual purpose hops if you're going for the classic German taste. The hops has a nice fruit/spice balance and people say that there is some floral flavor too, though I personally have never tasted that. The hops is really good for adding aroma, flavor and dry-hopping.July 9, 2013Hello Hersbrucker!If I've ever had a beer made with these hops in the past, I must have missed them. I tried a wheat beer made by a local brewer and I immediately noticed a really enjoyable, floral flavor. He said he added them 10 minutes prior to flameout._x000D__x000D_I have some Hersbrucker en route and am looking forward to brewing with them.April 3, 2013
