Well packaged, so they are kept fresh. I like using them as both aroma hops at 3 minutes, and flavor hops at 15 minutes.
They have a nice earthy spicy flavor and aroma. Not as good as the German version, but still good. The bittering is smooth, and its well suited for wheat beers and lagers.
Its surprisingly fragrant, with a spicy aroma. I used in in a Warsteiner clone, thinking that half an ounce wouldn't be noticeable, but it is. The German version is even more fragrant._x000D_
These have a great flowery aroma and a very good taste. It less strong than other hops and goes well in the German Lagers I brew.
Good taste and great aroma. It has a flowery smell that is pleasant, but not over powering. I added them after flame out so the aroma wouldn't be boiled off._x000D_I use these hops in lagers and wheat beers, especially for their aroma._x000D_
