Hey,
Has anyone else got their hands on some Mandarina Bavaria? Mine just came in and I'll be making a saison with some of it in the coming months. Smells fruity, and well, mandarin-y. Not quite American hop levels in terms of intensity of aroma, but really nice stuff. Can't wait to use it.

Just wanted to update with my experiences with this hop, as it's so new and not very widely available.
It's great. Not quite like an American hop; it tastes and smells exactly the way you might expect it to: like a cross between a citrusy fruity American hop and a German noble(think hersbrucker.) In the nose there's a nice subtle fruitiness with a bit of the herbal grassy notes that you get from German varieties. On the palate it's a little juicier and fruitier(oranges, of course mandarin) with the grassy herbal flavors more in the background. Not too in your face, but helped make a great balanced pale ale.

My recipe:
OG: 1.056 FG: 1.014 IBU: 35 SRM: 8 Yeast: S-04
90% Maris Otter
5% Flaked Wheat
5% Brown Malt

10 g Magnum (60 min)
20 g Mandarina Bavaria (15 min)
15 g Mandarina Bavaria (5 min)
30 g Mandarina Bavaria (FO)

I made a dark farmhouse ale that was dry hopped with about 4oz of this hop. Very strong madarin/orange aroma and even some flavor. I can't wait to get my hands on more of this.

Making some 1.065 OG IPA with mandarina bavaria. Almost finished fermenting and tastes great. Plenty of fruit and very distinctive orange, mandarin, tamarind flavour. A bit less of the same in terms of aroma, but I haven't dry hopped it yet. Says what it says on the tin and if I like orange flavoured beer I'll buy more of it.

Readily available here in Germany. Maybe some of the websites might send to America?

Got 100g of Mandarina, wondering what to do with it. Also got 100g Hüll Melon which also sounds interesting.

Had a slightly weird idea of making a chocolate orange stout and using the Mandarina as flavour / aroma hops. I guess they wouldn't come through and would be a waste though...

I have been serching all of the sites on the net...just not available yet. Maybe come February when the 2013 crops start to creep in from overseas.

I was thinking about using some in a Belgian Wit as a flavor and aroma addition. Even an IPA sounds good using those.

Try to contact Daniel at aMihopfen.com.

He is an American living in Germany and he might get the hops to you.
