Clean, clear, and belgian. This yeast, when done fermenting, droped out like wyeast 1056. No need for secondary for me, it leaves clear yummy beer. I fermented this in a closet with temperature ranging from high 78 degrees day time to 68 degrees at night. It was never really consitent, but no off flavors no banana like some belgians. Great choice for summer temps. I like this yeast so much, i'll probably brew with this even winter. Yes Sure. Thank You Sure.

Really frements fast and surious
I have used this yeast a cpuple of times for a Begian pale ale. It is a very quick starter and aggressive. So much so that I had to put a blow off tube on my fermenter and I still lost about a 1/2 gallon of wort as it blew out the top of the fermenter into a growler. My beer was probably 80% fermented in abouit 3 days but I let it go for a week. The yeast creates good fruity flavors and it complimented well with my citra and cascade hops. Would like to use this yeast for other Belgian ales as well in the future. A very good choice.

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.

Good for lots of Belgian styles
This yeast produces very nicely balanced Belgian beers. Not overpowering in the esters yet unmistakably Belgian. Adds some mild fruitiness and wild hay-like tones in the background. Very good attenuation which is great for high ABV beers. Definitely one of my all time favorite yeasts.

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.

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).

Holy molly.....
This strain is super strong. It will eat up everything and can withstand wide variations in fermentor temperatures. I used this during a Summer batch of Saison where my apartment was at a scorching 81-82f every evening and the beer turned out fantastic. Heavy banana flavors due to the high temperature but I expect those to calm down with conditioning. I'm guessing this strain is hard to mess up with.

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.
