Default Experience with WLP575 Belgian Blend?

I was wondering if anyone had tried White Labs 575, a Belgian blend. I made a dubbel with it in early December that I just tried tonight. I pitched it a little cooler than the suggested temperature, but let it warm up to 68. Not bad, but I feel like the aroma and taste is a bit tilted toward a green apple taste (acetaldehyde?), moreso than most Belgian style beers other than maybe Unibroue's Ephemere.

I used it a couple times this summer, I pitched it at 64 and then just let it go. probably got up to 78ºF. It developed some good phenol spice and ester profiles, but it did have a little solvent fussal alcohols flavors . Though I have been using 530 lately starting at 64 and raising it 1ºf a day then holding it 72. and have been getting a good profile.
