I've read rave reviews of this yeast so I made sure to reserve two vials from the LHBS. I used one this past weekend in a low gravity Belgian Pale ale, a recipe I created from looking at a couple of recipes on this site. It's happily fermenting downstairs right now at 66 F.
Because this yeast is only available once a year, I figured I'd make a yeast starter and make another brew and then hold on to a growler of starter for future needs.
Who has used this yeast, and what did you use it for? I'm thinking of using it for a low gravity belgian amber, or maybe an Ommegang Rare Vos clone next. Any suggestions or experiences with this yeast would be appreciated.

It's the De Koninck yeast so it is going to work really well with any Belgian pale ale or similar style (eg singel, Belgian blonde, ...). Would also make a good primary strain for a sour beer.
