Description

A palate-pleaser with its moderate,pleasant, minty clean bittering qualities and refreshing, spicy “green hop” aroma. Bred at the Hop Research Institute in Hüll and released in 1978, Perle is a cross between Northern Brewer and 63/5/27M. It is tolerant to most diseases and is grown in both Germany and the United States. Perle is known for adding a traditional, German-like quality to beer.

The original Perle was created in Germany sometime during the 1960’s or early-mid 1970’s from Northern Brewer and a German male. It was released to the public in 1978.

Some European breweries have claimed that Perle is much like and a good substitute for Hallertau Mittelfrüher. Others in the US and Japan however have disagreed with that assessment. Perle is said to have a pleasant aroma, elements of mint and pine with a hint of spice.
