Best yeast for "American" Tripel

(1/5) > >>

Planning on making a Tripel in the next few months, but using American hops.  Similar to Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold.  Not a Belgian IPA-- but a properly balanced Tripel using Amarillo hops instead of noble. 

Can anyone suggest a good belgian yeast strain that would play nicely with the peach and tangerine flavors from the Amarillo?

Should be WLP 530. Check out Can You Brew it on The Brewing Network, they interview Scott Vacarro from Captain Lawrence and he was generous enough to paint a good picture of how to brew it.
Good luck, that is a great brew to brew. Just be sure to make a big starter ;)

I've been using Wyeast #3522-Belgian Ardennes and like the combo with Amarillo.  ;)

I like WLP550 for my tripels, and love to blend in Amarillo too, especially during the aroma adition. fantastic combination.
