WLP565 Belgian Saison I Yeast
Classic Saison yeast from Wallonia. It produces earthy, peppery, and spicy notes. Slightly sweet. With high gravity saisons, brewers may wish to dry the beer with an alternate yeast added after 75% fermentation.

Bitterness and gravity vary batch to batch.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at White Labs. Pours with the best head retention of the flight, nice, billowy white head, clear gold, lasting, good lace. Aromas are estery and phenolic, strong baked apple, a hint of isoamyl acetate, bready, vanilla, light grass. Very nice balance of ester, phenol and still allowing some malt. Delicate and refined. Flavors are clean yet rich, low isoamyl acetate, bready malt, vanilla, rich pear, and apple. A touch sweet compared to the 620. Very light vinous. Despite the light sweetness and light vinous qualities, it is still a very good yeast. Perhaps it needs something to finish it, but it is very good as is. Lively bubbles, dry. The clear winner of the flight.
