For me there’s a huge difference in W34/70 vs S-04. W34/70 is very neutral — nearly tasteless while S-04 contributes fruity flavors (esters).

Agreed, the fruitiness seems welcomed to me.
Nice change.  Even if the batch is good, after
4 gallons I'm ready for a change.
Variety is the spice of life.

S-04 is a dry version of Wyeast 1098, which is known as Whitbread Dry.  Wyeast 1098 is one Wyeast's original strains.  They offered it when I started to brew in early 1993.  Whitbread Dry has light fruit with a characteristic tartness.

"light fruit with a characteristic tartness"
I agree, explains it well.  I'm lost for words when trying to explain
taste, aroma, and mouthfeel.  Not my favorite taste, but still good.
