I brewed a double american black ale this past weekend and it was my first time getting into these hops. I bittered with Columbus and did flavor and aroma additions with belma and motueka, 2:1 belma to motueka additions. The impression I got from tasting the wort and smelling the wort was a very herbal spicy tea. Maybe some lemon in there. Definitely a different hop than it was originally described as, but not too shabby at all. I still plan on a single hop beer with it, but so far it has me intrigued.

My wort smelled that way with belma too. Once fermented though it was just a hint of spice and a nice berry/citrus up front.

When I tasted my wort I didn't like it at all, but the outcome was one of my best beers ever.......

Thanks! Not sure what kind of granite it is.

I'm sending a bottle of this out for the Secret Santa Swap. It's def. got that Belma Strawberry thing going on. FWIW - Belma is a super clean bittering hop.

I like a countertop with character like that. We have soapstone.

My Belma is at primary cold crashing. Later in the week I'll move it to secondary for dry hopping. Looking forward to tasting a sample. Hope it looks as good as yours.

Jammin, is that the Zombie Dust Clone recipe? If not I'd love to see the grain bill as to how you achieved that color!

Pretty much. Only deviations are Great Western Pale Ale Malt which is 2.7 lovibond and Caramunich III which is around 57 Lovibond. I usually have a fairly strong boil which I think helps add color as well.

Cheers,
