Default WLP545 vs Wyeast 3522

Can anyone describe the flavor difference between these two yeasts? WLP545 is limited edition, both seem to be Ardennes. WLP545 seems to have higher attenuation and 3522 has a larger (and higher) temperature range

Very different yeasts. I did a side by side with wlp 545 and 550. WLP 550 is the same as wyeast 3522. The 550 was much spicier, not as much fruit ester, the 545 was really very fruity, which I did not care for as much. However, I can see 545 being a winner in a dark beer.
