I have these on the way.

3822-PC Belgian Dark Ale (Saazer-type hops or Styrian Goldings are commonly used)

3538-PC Leuven Pale Ale (Saazer-type hops, Styrian Goldings, East Kent Goldings or Fuggles are commonly used)

3463-PC Forbidden Fruit

What hop shall I buy? BJCP says saaz like but also mentions Fuggles and the like. Big bag of EKG do?

Yep as john says. Styrian goldings is the most commonly used. You can also use fuggles which is the parent of styrian. Saaz as well. It doesn't make much difference at all with a belgian beer though. Its all about the yeast.

The De Verboden Vrucht strain. I agree with John, the Styrian Golding looks like a good fit for this provided you are making a darker beer with it.

I found this link to a HB recipe clone. It might give you a few ideas if you don't have your own plan mapped out just yet.

Best of luck with them.

Forbidden Fruit

STRAIN PROFILE

Beer Styles: Witbier, White IPA

Profile: A widely-used strain in the production of Witbier and Grand Cru. This yeast will produce spicy phenolics which are balanced nicely by a complex ester profile. The subtle fruit character and dry tart finish will complement wheat malt, orange peel, and spice additions typical of Wits.

The two Hoegaarden strains are likely usable across a few variations. I just thought you might like to see the beer the brewery reportedly uses the 3463 on.

Cant really see the label. Is that a wheat?

It's interesting the Wyeast descriptors for a yeast strain reportedly used by the brewery in what appears to be something resembling a Belgian Dubbel. 🤔

It's almost like it's not the same strain.

Good luck with your planned brews. Should be interesting.

Cheers,

Lusty.
