Still fermenting but I have tasted it recently and I get some wild blueberries and Belgium esters!!
I used this blend in a saison-wine hybrid with 5 gallons of saison blended with 750ml of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. The yeast attenuated to 90%+ AA and is now bulk aging with the wine. The aromas/flavors are more varied and complex than when using a pure culture and so far the beer is developing a primarily Brett. brux character. Time will tell how this turns out, but I am a fan of saison blends. Keep 'em coming.
I used this yeast to make cider using a Cider House Select kit and it is awesome. This yeast makes a better cider then the dry yeast these kits come with. The flavors of the yeast work perfectly with a cider. It was slower fermenting when compared to a cider yeast and I am looking forward to aging it to see how it changes.
