Perle is typically an aroma hop, but in an excellent year can have high enough alpha content for use as bittering as well. Its combination of delicacy and brightness go well with the clean flavors of European lagers and cold-fermented ales, as well as the yeast character of many Belgian beers. Some brewers also find nontraditional use for its flavors in blends for pale ale and other hoppy warm-fermented styles.  It's aroma and flavor charteristics are described as having elements of spice, pepper, mint, and light florals.

The alpha acid range for Perle hops is generally between 4-8%.  This variety of Perle is cultivated in the U.S.

Cascade, Magnum, and Nugget hops are the recomendated hops for beginner growers.
