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.
If your recipe just says Hallertau you want Hallertau Mittlefruh.
