How does the flavor stack up with 565 or 566?  I had a really nice Saison that just finished off in a keg with 566.  Many favorable comments...using my LHBS's award winning recipe.  So I can't take much credit for it, but I did watch the temps meticulously - going from low 60's for about 4 days then ramped up into the 80's.  It finished off around 1.002....

The yeast contribution from Belle Saison is not as complex as that from 565 and 566 in my opinion.

Of course you can take credit for it.  You brewed it.

+1.  Or 3724 either. I like it pretty well though.

I only used this one time in a sour beer.  Used that yeast, pitched Sour Mix from WL then added Bret Lam from WL too haha.  So I can't attest to the yeast alone but that beer is sitting at 1.000 right now.  I added a lb of sugar to it a few months back.  Just waiting it out.

I'll need to brew my saison with this one and see what it comes out like.
