This strain is the classic farmhouse ale yeast. A traditional yeast that is spicy with complex aromatics, including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. Expect a crisp, mildly acidic finish that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures. This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 S.G. Fermentation will finish, given time and warm temperatures. Warm fermentation temperatures, at least 90°F (32°C), or the use of a secondary strain can accelerate attenuation.

This made a decent saison, but it ended up a little on the sour side compared to the similar White Labs strain. While saisons are supposed to be near the sour end of the belgian spectrum of beers, this was a little more than what I was looking for in the particular beer. However, the smack pack performed well and everything was delivered as promised. I would order again if I am looking for a more sour saison.
Everything arrived as ordered and delivered as promised. I haven't brewed any beer with it yet, so I can't say much to the quality of the products, but the quality of the service was top notch.
