Supposedly this is the Orval yeast without the Brett. However, I brewed a Belgian Blonde ale with it a couple months ago and tasted a bottle last night and it DEFINATELY has Brett. I know that White Labs has quality control out the wazoo (probably better than mine) but I am wondering if this one got past them. Has anyone else used this strain from them lately and gotten similar results? I don't particularly mind my results (I now have a great Orval clone) but I am glad I noticed this during fermentation and did not harvest and pitch this in my Belgian Golden Strong - as was my intention.
