Attempt towards breaking from tradition!
When I first saw this hop, I was uncertain of how to pronounce it. Is it AH-tan-um or ah-TA-num? No matter, in this hop I found a potential to change a tradition. The tradition of adding a noble hop such as Hallertau or Tettnanger to a Belgian Ale. This hop was added to a batch of 156, our "Belgian" style Trippel as our bittering hop. The bitterness was gentle and was not cloying. It rode well and enhanced the malty profile and supported the gentle tartness of the hibiscus. In this first test, I was indeed pleased with the profile and recommend it for some other Belgian types.
