A highly acceptable aroma variety with balanced bittering characteristics. Delicate floral, fruit, spice and mint tones.
While genetically indistinct from the original German variety, US-grown Perle tends to exhibit higher alpha acids potential and a slightly different balance of oils. Specifically, it tends to be higher in myrcene with lower in humulene, which may make US-grown Perle marginally more useful for bittering.
Alpha Acids: 6.0 - 10.0%
Beta Acids: 3.0 - 5.0%
