Versatile Yeast
Mostly have used this yeast for fermenting hoppy belgian styles (tripel ipa/big late hopped citrus farmhouse ales) and they have turned out great. Wonderful spiciness in the taste and fruity esters in the nose, blending well with late hops. This yeast leaves more body that my other favorites, French Saison 3711, which is a beast and devours all sugars regardless of mash temp, but leaves smooth silkiness. Can't go wrong with either, and don't be afraid to ferment hot (80s).

A great yeast!
This Yeast produces a fantastic finish on the palate. Like damp oak leaves and clove. It makes me think of Paulaner Hefe Weizen. As this yeast ferments you get a ton of tootie fruitie and bubblegum from the air lock. The finished beer gives a smooth, woodsy and spice character with a rich maltiness.

Good for Belgians
I am creating my own yeast blend, with 3711 as the backbone and 3522 coming in to support. It made a fantastic sessionable Belgian ale.

Great Flavor
I love the Belgian ale flavor in my beer. I keep looking for beer that calls for this yeast.

Great for open fermentation
I tried 3522 in open fermentation for a farmhouse saison and it turned out wonderful. The fermentation had a thick yeast head that was easy to crop. The saison it produced had a very pleasant banana flavor with a little bit of spiciness. It tasted more like a hefe weissbier after a couple of weeks of conditioning and then evolved to taste a bit more citrus. The banana, still evident, moved a little more to the background. One of my best and most interesting beers to date.

Great Yeast
Just racked off a batch to secondary with this yeast on Belgian Xmas beer recipe. It attenuated very well even with only a small yeast starter on a 9% beer. I will definitely use this again.

a great house yeast
This is a strain I return to again and again--it is robust and predictable, and makes delicious ales. Fermenting at cooler temps lets malt flavor come to the fore, while higher fermentation temperatures give plenty of clove, pepper, and tropical fruit.

Great Yeast For Summer
This seems to be the most high-temperature tolerant yeast available from Wyeast. I used 3722 in late summer for an all-grain Surly Cynic kit (no starter) followed by an extract Tripel. The Surly fermented at an ambient temperature of 80-82F. I used the leftover yeast from the secondary fermenter for the Tripel. Temperature was somewhat cooler at around 75F. The yeast did an excellent job in both cases, producing unmistakably Belgian beers with plenty of fruity flavors but no flaws due to high summer temperatures that I could detect. I particularly love the Tripel, and will have no hesitation in using the 3522 yeast again in the future.

This yeast is a beast. Just feed it and is does it's job. Great all-around yeast for Belgian beers. I've made 3 100ml starters with this yeast and it's never fails to perform. Most recently just made a former limited edition beer, Le Petite Orange, that had bubbles in the airlock for 5 days at 72 degrees!

A Straight-Up Workhorse
This yeast is the backbone of my Franco-Belgian brewing. Never fails to perform at a high level. Any time I'm trying a new recipe, this is the go-to strain.
