WLP568 Belgian Style Saison Ale Yeast Blend
This blend melds Belgian style ale and saison strains. The strains work in harmony to create complex, fruity aromas and flavors. The blend of yeast strains encourages complete fermentation in a timely manner. Phenolic, spicy, earthy, and clove like flavors are also created.

Bitterness and gravity vary batch to batch.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at White Labs. Pours with the second best head retention of the flight, full white head with a clear yellow hue body. Great retention. A bit paler than a few others in the flight. Aromas are peppery, sweet potatoes, clove, dry, low esters, spicy, ginger. Malt shows up as a bit crackery and bready. Flavors are relatively cleanish compared to some of the others. Dry, dried fruit esters with stronger phenols, grassy, some malt shines through, but this yeast lacks some expressive qualities. Dry and clean. Creamy mouthfeel, lacks a bit of character.
