Picture 6 gallons of an 8% ABV brew with 80% two row, 5% each aromatic and carapils, 8% crystal 20 and 2% acidulated malt. Bitter with 2 oz of Magnum at first wort, flavor with 1 oz of Belma and 1 oz of Simcoe at 15 min, aroma at 1 min with 1 oz each of Belma and Simcoe and dry hop with 2 oz Belma and 1 oz Simcoe.

Sound tasty? Need more hop complexity? Need more Belma? Open to input.
Sounds good, but I would cut back on the Simcoe a bit (just me). Maybe throw a little Centennial in for the dry hop or Amarillo at one of the late additions in place of the Simcoe for one of those steps.

If I can get three brews in, I'm doing an all Belma, Bam Biere inspired petite saison. If not, it'll be in the mash tun this time tomorrow.

Dry hopped my Belgian red with 3 oz of Belma only and my ESB with an oz each of Belma, Cascade, and Citra today. Thinking 14 days in the hops....

It's a far cry from Citra and it makes a totally different beer. Not nearly as good as the Citra version, but still a decent beer.

Opened my bag of Belma today. Definitely get the allium/garlicky smell in the bag, but not when I weighed the hops out. Only used an oz & a half in 11 gallons.

Sure, I didn't expect it to be a direct substitute - asking more if anyone thought this would be a good use of Belma.

The Z.D. recipe might let the hops come through well, even give it a chance to show it's "sweeter" side since 1968 finishes sweet.

I would add more Belma through the 15/10/5/1 additions though, maybe bump it to 1.5 or 2 oz even, I have found that Belma is on the soft side of the aroma/flavor spectrum compared to Citra.
