Puterbaugh Farms is excited to introduce a brand new and very unique hop. Over the past few years they have nurtured and developed a NEW hop variety they call “Belma™”, which is exclusively grown at Puterbaugh Farms.
Dr. Shellhammer from OSU tested Belma™ and created an American style Pale Ale. He noted the following description: “A very clean hop, with a very orange, slight grapefruit, tropical pineapple, strawberry, and melon aroma.”
As this is a very new variety, we welcome customer feedback and encourage you to write a review.
