Perle is a German hop cultivar that continues to gain popularity in Europe. Perle was initially brew from a Northern Brewer parent and certainly has Northern Brewer’s characteristic green, minty notes along with a more noble, earthy/spicy quality reminiscent of traditional Noble hops like Hallertau or Saaz.
At 7% to 9%AA Perle is best used in a flavor/aroma role, however, Perle also makes a great stand-alone hop in lower alpha beers like a light lager or an American Wheat. Another use is an interesting hop in place of some traditional UK hops – a great example being Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
