This yeast produces a complex flavor profile with a spicy phenolic character and low ester production. Phenols tend to dominate most flavors and dissipate with age. It ferments fairly dry with a finish that compliments malted and unmalted wheat and oats. It is sometimes used in conjunction with lactic acid bacteria to produce a sharper finish. This strain is a slow starting yeast with true top cropping characteristics requiring full fermenter headspace.
