As far as T-58 goes, I find it strange that a lot of people seem to use but there is not more information on what styles it is best for. Since I am a Belgian style novice I don't really know although it seems good for wits but I could be wrong there...

With all due respect, why worry about what someone else likes?  Why not just take a leap, brew with it and see what YOU think?

That's actually how I approach most of my brewing. This is more out of curiosity since Fermentis is so horrible with accurately describing their strains. I will let it go.

"Thank you for contacting Fermentis.

I will be happy to help you out.  Yeast is a living organism, so I can only give you information on “standard” brews.  Safbrew T-58 typically produces Belgian-type character.  It is known to produce a spicy, peppery flavor when used within our recommended pitch rates.  It also produces an interesting ester/phenol profile that is why I say Belgian-type character.  It has a lower attenuation and a high alcohol tolerance, so it is well suited for higher alcohol beers, leaving some residual sugar to balance the high alcohol.  When used in lower alcohol beers, it will produce a full pallet beer, typical of Belgian beers."
