I have used this hope many times. It has a slight cream sickle like aroma, definitely strawberry as well. I have used in a Biere De Garde style for the Lower Alphas. Goes great with the piquant malt profile. Don't be Sexist this hop is for both Men and Women.

Really nice hop if you are looking for fruity flavors.I used this hop in Belgian style ales & produces mild strawberry taste that blends well with fruity esters of many Belgian/Saison yeast strains.Hop aroma of freeze dried strawberries .Nice hop in late additions /dry hop.For folks who want fruity notes on the palate,but not grapefruit.

I used this hop variety in the whirlpool, and dry hopped with it and Chinook in a pale ale a few months ago. Absolutely loved the beer.
