5.0 / 5.012 ReviewsAroma and flavorWell packaged, so they are kept fresh. I like using them as both aroma hops at 3 minutes, and flavor hops at 15 minutes.March 1, 2014Good, but not quite as good as teh German versionThey 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.December 20, 2013Very aromaticIts 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_November 27, 2013Low alpha acidThese 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.September 10, 2013Use these hops in lagers and wheat beers, especially for their aroma.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_July 14, 2013Good hopsI used these in a wheat beer and am really pleased with the result. It has a pleasant bittering, not a harsh one, and is perfect for the lighter beers I like.May 22, 2013General Purpose HopI have been using this hop in most of my Beers with great results.For flavoring I have been adding it 4 min. at the end of the boil, this is cutting down on the Hop Flavor in my American Ale made with Barley and cornMay 21, 2013Love the low AAUI am repeatedly trying to find homebrews that work with family and friends. Finding the right hop in this process has found the Tettnang hop to provide a small amount of bittering with maybe more earthy tones than desired. Good Hop though!April 16, 2013Good stuffUsed these as part of MW's deep dark wheat kit and loved them, nice earthy with a hint of spicy, reminded me of Killians Red. Using them again in my own Irish Red.March 30, 2013
