I've used this yeast for several years and with a variety of ingredients. It is easy to work with and dries out nicely, but I don't find it to provide any particular flavors or aromas that are characteristic to it alone. Some have said apple and pear, though I don't notice it over the usual belgian aromatics. I use Lallemand Belle Saison on occasion, and it is okay as well. I've even tried the two together. I find them easier to get results that I want starting in the low sixties and ramping as well, though, I don't usually have the beer finish at 80F. Perhaps this is why I have not noted the apple or pear notes? I don't use the Wyeast or other White labs saison yeasts any more, though I recall WLP565 being more finicky but better than 566. My friend used to prefer 585, which hasn't been available for a while. Best wishes!
