So I used the Wyeast Belgium Strong Ale, and I get a wonderful flowery alcoholic scent mixed in with orange and very little vanilla. If that what I was trying for I would be happy. I wanted more orange and vanilla in the nose.
The taste has tons for citrus up front followed by that very Belgium alcohol bite. Again I like, but not what I was trying for.
Head retention it great think white lacy head and hangs all over the glass.
I think I hit pretty well stylistically on a Belgium Strong Ale. However, to recreate my Bucco with my current equipment and process I need to change up the yeast and find thing that does over power my spices.
