I have lots of 3787 around (it's my dubbel yeast) and I was going to try to use something new....but I think I'm convinced to stick with it.

I still really like WLP550 for my "American Tripel", granted, I haven't tried any other yeasts with this latest incarnation, but you should give it a shot at some time.

As long as it doesn't taste like cloves and bananas, I'm good....;)

Then don't use 510. Worst Tripel Ever. Wait, I take that back, I had worse at Big Al's Brewing Co. in Seattle. Blech  :'(

Used the 530 extensively. Experimented with it several times in the lower ranges sub 65F. Didn't like results. Not at all. Keep it a little warmer LOL.

That's odd... I've used this multiple times and never had those flavors.  I ferment cool (pitch in the high 50s, let it rise to about 70) since it's the Orval strain and they do too.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

I brewed a beer with 510 and found it to be extremely clean for a belgian yeast.  It was fermented in the low 60s.
