From: Omega Yeast

Lightly phenolic, fruity, dry, delicately tart and a very low flocculator, this presents much like a saison strain. Try this for Bière de Garde, or a Belgian or French farmhouse ale. In fact, a clean-bodied Bière de Garde can be achieved with any lager strain here at the warm end of its temperature range. For farmhouse, try also French Saison (OYL-026) or Belgian Saison II (OYL-042)

Brewing Properties of BIERE DE GARDE
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
