Default wyeast forbidden fruit yeast?

has anyone used this particular strain if so what flavors came through.i brewed a belgian blonde and they have been inbottles for 5 weeks and have a banana taste thats not by any means overpowereing but is there i was just wondering if this was common for this strain or it just needs to condition longer?

I just used it in a wit, but I bottled sat. I think the banana is esters the yeast give off at higher temps

ok so then maybe it just needs more time to condition because the temps didnt get any higher than like 67 i just didnt know if the banana taste was maybe supposed to be there with this particular strain,

Yea I would bet it'll go away. I wish I would have remembered to try some of mine when I was bottling, now I am worried I might have banana... Might open one early just to see... either way

I don't think it's the current Hoeggarden strain. I believe it's from Pierre Celis after her moved to the US. So it's probably more inline with the (old?) Celis White yeast than Hoeggarden.

Keep us posted as to your results... I am working on a recipe and was considering this stain because I was led to believe that it WOULDN'T give the banana flavors. Now I have to reconsider my choice. I want a hint of fruitiness, just no banana.
