Limonadier hops

Hi all,
Any experience with this hops?
I just kegged a single hop pale ale type thing, and am still trying to get a handle on what would be a good use for this hops.
I find it has a strange combination of very ripe mango and also pine.
I went nuts on the addition stages so this might have confused the matter.(60, 20, 5, whirlpool, dh during fermentation, dh halfway through cc) 200g total for 27l
Anyways, I seem to miss all the bottle exchanges, but if anybody want to try it, I would be willing to hand out some bottles. Just note that I find the beer respectable, but not great, but at least it should give a good Idea of the hops.
Cheers, Bruno

Interesting… I picked up a couple ounces of that hop the last time I bought from nanohoublon and have yet to use it. I would definitely be interested in tasting a bottle.

I haven’t tried it. Saw it for sale at Nanohoublons but never pulled the trigger. Would be interested in tasting a bottle and offering you one or two bottles in exchange.

Hey, I also have some ounces from nanohoublon that have been sitting in my freezer for a few months now.
I was thinking of making a mandarina/limonadier pale ale with it, but had no idea on what to expect and how much to use.

Would also be down for an exchange if ever!

I did a nice NEIPA using this hop, centenial and lemondrop. I have yet to try it in a SMASH to isolate its contribution, but the beer was great. Like, really great!

I just got a Limondier baby. In a couple of years I’ll give you some feedback.

Where did you pick those up?

From Houblon Franklin. They were selling them at Labrosse today.

Dang, would have been nice adding this local breed to the few plants I kept. Maybe next spring.
