If you keg you can burp it twice a day until the sulfur clears

Haven't used this yeast, but another Belgian yeast I used (WLP400) took 3 weeks to fully attenuate. Read about that when I used WLP565, though it didn't do that to me. I'd just let it sit, maybe bump the temp up slightly. Shouldn't hurt the flavor at this point.

Used it once on a Belgian Blonde and it turned out great.
Fermented in the low 60's.
I recall an overpowering sulfur stench during peak fermentation, but it went away prior to bottling.
Give it a few weeks in primary and you should be fine.

My biggest issue was that it didn't clear very well in primary, but my bottles are very clear now.

I will use this again and again as my Belgian strain.

This is about where I'm at right now. I am planning on bottling it later this week or perhaps this coming weekend, as long as the sulfur is gone. It hasn't cleared much while sitting in the primary, but I also haven't tried cold crashing as I've been hoping the ambient temp will help drive off the sulfur smell.

Bottled this today. The sulfur smell is gone, and the green beer tastes really good. Gravity dropped another several points, putting me at about 77% apparent attenuation. I collected the yeast and plan on using it again soon. The banana and pepper flavors were both present, but not overpowering, and likely to become a bit more pronounced with conditioning I'm sure, but so far I'm happy with it. Other than the long conditioning period this one needed, that is.

Cracked a couple of these open today, and I'm happy with the results. The beer cleared up completely in the bottle, leaving a very clear golden color. Strong pepper flavor up front along with a spicy nose, followed by banana and citrus (from the lemon zest I added and not the yeast, no doubt).
