I added 9 oz of date molasses to half of a 10 gallon batch of low gravity saison (1.035 before adding the molasses). The WY3711 tore through it (of course) and the resulting beer was quite dry. I was surprised by how very little date character the molasses-half had compared to the non-molasses-half. It did contribute a significant color difference to the dosed half.
