Try to age a few. I wasn't very impressed with the yeast the first couple of times I tried it. It was good, but not great. Fortunately I have plenty of bottles so that I age some of every batch, and when I tried a couple of these beers after a year, they tasted pretty dam good. So much so trhat I am going to get some of the yeast out of the freezer and do a few more beers with it.
I regularly take Belgians up to the mid 80s, but this yeast has a lower temp range than most. Just checked and the spec calls for 77 F. It may be OK up to 85 for all I know, but I would prefer for someone else to do the experiment - I don't want to have 5 gallons of beer that will give you a headache after 1 glass.
