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.

I really enjoyed this hop. Paired really well with Mosaic in a pale ale. I use an ounce of each at whirlpool and the aromas between the two hops were smooth and soft with lots of crushed melon coming through.

My favourite hop at the moment. Great aroma (fruity, strawberry!) and it takes a lot of it (and I mean really a lot!) before it gets the typical IPA aroma. Which is great, I don't like IPAs. Also goes well with Weizen yeast.
