I've used 550 for saison, Belgian pale ale, golden ale. Versatile. Tgis reference might also be of assistance.

I tried the 550 in a triple as well as a belgian pale...either way works...more spice than fruit esters...good multipurpose belgian yeast...manipulation of fermentation temps can accentuate those esters as well
