Default Belgian Goldan Ale yeast WLP570

I am going to brew my first belgian style ale this weekend. Last night I made my yeast starter. Can anyone confirm that this WLP570 has a sour smell normally? So far I have only used the California Ale yeast which, has a very different (doughy) smell to it.

Thanks

Last time I used it I got a marmalade/orange like fruitiness. And just a slight tartness in the background. I'm using it again in a Golden Strong soon.

I am going for a lemon ginger saison. I could not get saison yeast for this batch so I went with the golden ale yeast. It went crazy for three days then slowed down. I am almost 3 weeks into the primary and there is still some activity from this yeast. Will it ever end????

You know what they say. Check your gravity.

Yup. I'm racking this weekend either way and then washing the yeast.
