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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
