Profile

Belma hops, which trace their origins to Magnum and Kitamadori, were developed on Puterbaugh Farms in Mabton, Washington and are a relatively new addition to the world of hop varieties. They were first introduced in 2012 and have gained popularity in the beer brewing industry due to their exceptional flavor profile and versatility.

Belma hops boast a complex and intriguing mix of flavors and aromas, which are perfect for adding depth and nuance to your homebrews. The flavor profile of Belma hops is characterized by notes of strawberry, melon, and citrus, with subtle hints of pineapple and grapefruit. The aroma is similarly fruity, with a gentle touch of floral undertones. When used in beer brewing, Belma hops provide a mild and balanced bitterness, making them an excellent choice for a variety of styles. These hops are particularly well-suited for IPAs, pale ales, and fruity wheat beers, where their distinctive characteristics can shine through. Whether you're looking to experiment with new hop varieties or seeking a versatile and flavorful option, Belma hops are a fantastic choice for any homebrewer.
