It was rolled out at NHC a couple of weeks ago. The BSG people had a Saison on tap at their hospitality booth made with that yeast and it was very nice. I noted that the pepper phenolics were pronounced. I think it should be a good choice for Saisons.

I have a sample from HomebrewCon.  Brewing a saison with it tomorrow.  FWIW, I get pretty good results from Belle Saison, too.  I am brewing it side-by-side with this yeast for this batch, 10 gallons split into 2 fermenters.  I will respond to this thread with info about how the 2 yeasts performed.

Cool!  I look forward to hearing your comments.
