AROMA PROFILE

Opal is "the" Australian gemstone and is also an eponym for a relatively new German hop variety from the German research center Hüll that exhibits excellent aroma characteristics combined with a respectable alpha acid level. Opal is an European jewel which has a sweet spice, slightly peppery aroma and flavor combined with a light clean citrus fruit aroma. Will do well in German wheat beers, summer ales, Helles, light European lagers, light ales, Saisons, and Belgian ales.
