After a few weeks in the bottle, this turned out quite nice. Fruity hops backed with a mild peppery flavor, dry but with nice mouthfeel. Still seems pretty reserved compared to the saison yeasts I've used from Wyeast and White Labs, but very pleasant. Also surprisingly flocculant: almost crystal clear after 2 weeks bottle conditioning.
I'd recommend the yeast and would like to hear others' experiences.

I havent tried this yeast but I have an ipa going with GigaYeast Vermont IPA (Conan) and it was so slow to start. It's my fault I was too lazy to do a starter but the reported cell count was close enough for me.

After that slow start the the Vermont IPA yeast blew off enough to fill the 2/3 of a gallon of space in the blow off jug, pop the lid on the fermenter and leak all over the desk in the basement brew room Its in beast mode now and i didnt want to leave the brewroom it smells so good
