I'm about to dry hop a belgian IPA I used Belma, Citra, Amarillo and Cascade for the late addition hops. I'll post how it turns out. My Belma pellets do not smell like onions, they smell fruity.

I finally got around to brewing. I did a pale ale with Centennial (FWH), Cascade (Bittering), Belma (Aroma) and CTZ (Finishing). I thought the Belma and Centennial smelt pretty similar.

I used some combined with Centennial in a big American stout I brewed Wednesday, and I'm going to do a farmhouse/saison soon with Belma and Citra.

To be continued...

I ended up brewing 5 gal of 1.067 OG IPA with 2 oz Warrior for bittering, 1.5 oz Belma and .75 oz Simcoe at both 15 min and 1 min. I transferred to secondary after a week and took a gravity and a taste. 1.010 FG and a nice piney resinous flavor with medium bitterness. Maybe a hint of fruitiness and a bit musty. I like it a lot. I decided to dry hop with 3 oz Belma, 1.5 oz Simcoe and 1.5 oz Centennial for a little more fruit. I'm expecting this to be a nice one! Pleasantly surprised at the Belma.

I think finding the right blend with Belma is key - I'm pretty dissapointed in the single hop grav sample I had yesterday, but I think it would help shape a fuller fruit profile with some of the more tropical hops. I also pulled a sample of nelson citra saison to see how much longer to let it sit on dry hops and after I got my d$*k out of the glass, I was a little out of sorts and maybe Belma is better than I think alone.

I think they would pair well. I get a slight Centennial flavor from Belma. It's berry/melon/sweet dominant for sure. The sharpness of Centwnnial should make the fruitiness of Belma sparkle; sorta like a mimosa. Sure would like to hear your feedback if you brew it (assuming you make a hoppy APA/IPA).

I was thinking of doing a sasion and an APA about 1.055-1.060 range 30 to 35 IBU mostly late additions. Will let y'all know how it comes out.

I like the suggestions.

I think I'm gonna go with a nice Pale and do it with some Centennial, Belma and perhaps some Amarillo. Maybe do Centennial FWH, hit it with Belma, finish with Amarillo and Belma at flame out.

Dry hop it with Centennial/Cascade and Belma.

Then do a nice light blonde with Belma and Citra for the folks who like their beer "light".

A saison is in the future, but I think once I brew those two and get a handle on how it works with other hops, I'll hit a Saison I've been waiting to do.
