A daughter of Cascade, Hallertau Blanc was bred specifically to answer the needs of American craft beer styles.
It has a moderate to strong flavor and aroma, featuring notes of pineapple, gooseberry, white grape, fresh lemongrass stalk, and passionfruit.
It's reminiscent of many recent Southern Hemisphere varieties, but with a cleaner, less ‘dank’ profile.
Hallertau Blanc is used as an aroma variety, particularly in whirlpool and dry hopping to take full advantage of the very high myrcene fraction.
