Very nice flavor/aroma hop. I use it in my raspberry wheat as it has a very clean flavor.
I'm brewing fruited wheats, (Peach, Black Cherry) The last thing I wanted was hops to dominate- So, the french are very mild, and floral. I really just wanted the aroma. So I pitched the last few minutes. (I never dry hop) Low IBU so if you are brewing Wheats, these work well.
I just used these in a Biere de Garde that is in primary. These hops had the best aroma that I have ever used.
These are some of the cheapest pellet hops around. I greatly prefer spending another couple dollars and getting fresh hops, though.
These hops work well in Belgian style beers, giving a wonderful aroma. I used them in a Belgian Half Wit and a Tripel._x000D_
