Superior phenolics, poor flocculation
Given that I am the person who originally cultivated this yeast from van Steenberge Gulden Draak and gave it to Chris White in about 1996, I am prejudiced.

This is my "go to" Belgian yeast with lovely phenolics and does not produce hardly any banana when fermented very warm. When I was propagating it, it was a much poorer flocculator than after Chris cleaned it up. It is still not a very good flocculator. However, it produces a lovely aromatic character and clovey phenolic taste with much spicy complexity. It is not exceptionally tolerant of high gravity wort, so if you plan on making a beer with an OG of over 1.080, you need to grow it up in a couple of batches of beer first. I have successfully fermented a 1.122 wort down to 1.024, but only with a huge amount of yeast slurry from two previous batches. Belgian Golden Strong made with this yeast was awarded a Gold in 2001 and 2002 in NHC First Round and a Silver at NHC final round in 2002. And, a Belgian Dark Strong brewed that same year, continued to get better with age for the next 12 years, but sadly is all gone.
