Triple Pearl was bred from a Perle female and an unknown male. This resulted in higher alpha acid and more pronounced aroma. Triple Pearl is bitter-forward with a slight astringency and nice mouth-feel. Aroma is like the traditional Perle but with more emphasis on melon, sweet citrus and spices.
Orange, lime and honeydew in the aroma. Sweet orange peel, lime zest, pepper and pine dominate the flavor. Perfect for a Kolsch!
