Moderate to strong featuring pineapple, gooseberry, white grape, fresh lemongrass stalk, and passionfruit. Reminiscent of many recent Southern Hemisphere varieties, but with a cleaner, less “dank” profile.
Predominantly spicy with an undercurrent of woods and wild fruit, suggestive of its Brewer’s Gold parentage. Overall balanced with lasting flavor that reads as simply “hoppy” - not as outright woodsy and bright as US-grown Northern Brewer.
Moderate to strong. Lovely and pungent whiffs of ripe fruit (particularly peach) backed with bright notes of grapefruit juice, and a suggestion of tropical flowers and balsam, which can be brought closer to the front with dry hopping.
Complex with moderate to intense fruit (peach, red currant, berry, cherry) not quite balanced by a delicate, tangy spice quality. Suggestions of green tea leaves. Pairs well with earthy or herbal varieties in a blend.
Heavy and big displaying signature citrus intensity (especially grapefruit & tangerine); can also have an earthy onion/garlic quality. Harvest conditions help determine balance between citrus and onion/garlic character.
Hallertauer Tradition displays a classic Hallertau character of strong herbal and spice components with an underpinning of bright fruit. Complex balance of classic “hoppy” character with floral, earthy, and new-mown hay notes.
