Wyeast's Belgian Ale strain is a classic yeast originating from the Chimay brewery. It can be used to create a plethora of Belgian ales. Spicy flavors blend with clove and banana esters, giving beers a layered depth of complexity. Belgian Ale yeast has a higher temperature range than many British and American strain, and the ester profile will vary with fermentation. Known to be a slow starter and a medium flocculator at best, this strain is highly attenuative once it gets going.
