Brewing Application: Aroma. Although it can be and is used throughout the boil, it is most prized for its fine, elegant aroma and flavor contribution. MittelfrÃƒÂ¼h has been one of EuropeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most widely esteemed varieties for centuries and is practically synonymous with continental lagers (particularly Bavarian styles) and many types of German and Belgian ales.
Sensory: Complex, but mild and approachable. A mixture of sweet, earthy,and herbal with vivid impressions of new-mown hay, sweet spices, and dried flowers. Its many offshoots and daughters show some of these same qualities, but none have the same range and balance as MittelfrÃƒÂ¼h.
