Love this hop! Made a European themed all grain ale recipe with it on July 16th and it tastes amazing. A great floral aroma and just the right taste without nagging bitterness.

IF you want to see what it tastes like, and you are in or close to Texas, Southern Star Brewing out of Conroe, TX makes 'Garden State" a hefeweizen with Bavarian Mandarina. Very nice indeed!

On every review I read about tangerine aroma. I was a kind of disappointed, but using it as a single hop (also dry), my beer came with a distintive taste of saffron, no fruits. Would like to know if someone experienced the same taste. Particular!

Unique flavor profile with mild fruity /citrus at 25 minutes left to the boil.Works well with spices & orange peel in my Biere De Garde.A complimentary hop for those looking for soft mild fruit tones.

Made a sour pale ale with this hop. Amazing!

Haven't brewed with it personally, but Exile Brewing's Zoltan session IPA is said to use it (along with citra) in both the boil and during dry hop. A great combination of bitterness, flavor, and aroma in this beer, I'm gonna get my hands on some Mandarina.
