5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsGood hopsI was happy the way my wheat beer turned out when i used these hops. Nice but not over powering at all. I will be buy this again.October 4, 2012One of my favoritesGreat variety of hops for belgian ales, especially blonde and pale ales. Low alpha acid hop best used for flavor and aroma. Not spicy but pleasant and flowery. One of my favorite hops.December 8, 2012Versatile HopThis is a great variety hop for many different styles. I found I've had the most success when using it as an aroma hop (last 20-0 minutes) in lighter ales. It has worked nice as a bittering hop, but you need to step it up a bit when using it that way.December 14, 2012Nice aroma hopThe aroma is floral and slightly fruity. I like it in Lagers and Pilsners._x000D_I have only used it for aroma, but some brewers say they like the flavor so I might try that next time. I put these in 3 minutes before the end of the boil. I use a hops bag, so I try and squeeze the bag to make sure I get full utilization.December 30, 2012Good Aroma hop for lagersThis has a Pleasant and flowery aroma. Nice but not overpowering. I've also used them in wheat beers._x000D_February 21, 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, 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, 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, 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, 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, 2013
