5 months agonice mild hopNice hop to use in a wheat beer that adds bittering, but doesn't dominate the flavor profileFebruary 23, 2014Good for Lagers and PilsnersIt has a pleasant citrusy and flowery aroma and taste. I've actually used it as a FWH to increase the flavor, and since it's not high in Alpha acids it doesn't dominate the beer.January 14, 2014
