Nice hops for a Belgian Triple.
I like the light flavor of these hops. They are not pungent or overpowering.

SMASH hop for light lagers
I've made some really good light lagers and wheat beers using only Perle. It's got a minty clean bittering and a spicy "green hop" aroma.

Perle has a nice floral aroma that make it good as an aroma hop or as a 15 minute flavor hop. Its low in bitterness (compared to the American grown Perle) so more can be used to impart the fruity floral flavor. I use it in Lagers and Kolschs.

Does its job
I'm not as fond of Perle as others are. I used it in a clone of a Sierra Nevada beer and it was drinkable but nothing out of the ordinary. I also use it in some of the German lagers I brew since the recipes call for it. The earthy aroma is like green plants.

Earthy Undertones
I like this hops a lot, use it for my IPA�?���s, Porters, Stouts, etc. Mostly use it for bittering in the boil, however, I have used it at flame out and for dry hopping. If I use it for aroma, I use another hop variety of hops with it.

Good dual hop
This hop is good for aroma, but I really like it as a bittering hop.

Different from the American version
I use the German Perle hop in Kolsch's and lagers. I also used it in a Sierra Nevada clone (came out ok). The American Perle hop has more bittering, the German one is better suited as an aroma or flavor hop. The aroma is not like the usual citrusy one you expect. Instead it's more like green plants (earthy)._x000D_

Great hop, got low alpha acids
Use this in several IPAs, the german gives it a little better aroma than the american. My most recent batch had really low alpha acids and wish I would have known because I would have gotten the american kind for the bittering.

Nice Hop
This is a floral hop that's good for aroma and flavor. Slightly fruity. I've used it in pale ales that have turned out great.
