Perle is prided for its mildly spicy character, with an aroma that pleases the senses. It is useful for anytime throughout the brewing process, and will add a German-like quality to the beer.
Perle Hops grown in the U.S. has excellent storagability and the lupulin color is a deep dark yellow. The yield is low for these medium size loose cones early in the season. The U.S. variety has not made the same impact that it has made in Europe, but can be found. Yakima Chief Ranch is an example of a grower/supplier for the commercial brewing industry.
