Bottle from Slowbeer. Pale golden/straw, fizzy white head, grapefruit dominates aroma and flavour, astringent, acidic bitterness, orange peel, sour pineapple, one-dimensional (as you’d expect I guess), high bitterness, light sweetness, light body, thin texture, slight alcohol. Ok.

mcberko (6708) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light floral notes, some citrus, and almost some lavender-like flowers. Flavour is similar bringing out loads of the lavender-like floral notes, along with very slight citrus, and a thin crackery malt backing. Very flowery, being almost completely dominated by this flavour profile. Interesting showcase of the belma hop. Decent stuff.

andrewturba (1003) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small dense white head and a few specs of lace on the glass. Aroma is sweet fruit, citrus, a bit grainy, and kinda herbal. Flavour is medium bitterness, grass, herbal notes, fruity and a bit dry. First time trying this hop, definitely decent but not my favorite variety for a single hop ipa.

Simply Wonderful. Single Hopping is just an Art, its a big challenge to brew a beer with just one hop. Aroma and bitterness have to be found in one variety of hops. So you have to understand a single hop as everything that this hop variety represents. That’s the magic made by mikkeller in this beer.

pintbypint (2649) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
330ml brown bottle. Hazy yellow pour, creamy white foam, good sticky lacing. Nose has some fruitiness, citrus, grass and herbal notes.. Taste has some fruitiness, lemony citrus, dryish malts. Finish has a bit of citrus and a big grassy character. Bitterness is medium, bit of a short aftertaste. My first experience with Belma, it seems ok, but didn’t really wow me.

patricks110 (1623) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Belma pours a bright orange colour with a massive foamy white head and a hazy body despite not having any sediment present. The aroma is pronouncedly fruity with big floral pineapple and a hint of strawberry. A fairly basic cereal and grain malt aroma pervades the fruity hop aromas. Although the flavour had a prominent fruity flavour with mild malts and a floral hop note the taste has a general herbal spice with mild sweet fruits taking the back seat. The finish has a lingering hop spice with a bit of zesty grapefruit eventually making its way through to the palate. This beer in general is a very average IPA that lacks a bitter and resinous feel but on its own the fruitiness is a unique flavour profile.

Hazy pale gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Bitterish brett with light noble tasting hops. Finishes dry. Curious but tasty!
