Good but expensive.
Wine grape, gooseberry hop yumminess. Good quality but expensive. Hard to find anywhere. So at least NB had some to buy just expensive.
Flanders Red with Tart cherries.  
Cherry pie flavored sour beer.
Added Olympic 2.5 lb weight to make the lid more secure.  Works great with the weight.

Unique Hop
This was a very unique hop. I had used it as a flavor hop in the boil and an aroma hop in the secondary. The results were amazing!!!! I have made two IPAs that people truly loved and this was what made them. The exotic hop smell and flavor really had made a difference in the beers. After I move back from Germany I plan to continue to experiment with this hop to unlock its full potential.
