I am thinking about throwing some into my Pale Ale which for some reason only bittered. I don't know why but none of the flavor/aroma additions seem to have done anything but bitter. A little Belma/Cascade dry hop to test them out.

I'm still waiting for mine to come in, going to make an IPA, when they do.

I like cascade/Belma combo - a few people have mentioned my APA tastes like a creamy Sierra Nevada

It's a very light IPA... would go down really good on a hot summer day chilled to about 34F.
Thanks!

Might just give this a try.

I hit it with 4oz whole in the keg - they've been in there for a month and still no grassy flavors at all

I wouldn't say Belma has grassy off-flavors akin to dryhopping for too long or using old hops.

Rather, grass is just a trait of this hop. At its very basic, it offers grass, spice, pineapple, orange zest, and some get strawberry.

Bottled wheatwine hopped with belma, nelson, and brewer's gold today. Smelled like kool aid. Tastes pretty much exactly like I wanted flat. Fruity, strong, wheaty, and the wlp 530 shines through nicely. Looking forward to sending some out for the Belma swap and holding onto most of the rest of them for at least a year.

I will echo this. The grassy note is something that actually melds well with other hops, but might not with some that tend to get grassy on their own.

The spice and pineapple with the ripe red berry note is something I get with Belma as well.

I was mentioning this as a positive - I've had hops that I've left in the keg for 3 weeks and had lots of grassy off flavors and aromas
