Default Belgian Pumpkin Beer

I am looking to brew a beer with pumpkin and belgian yeast. No spices. I am shooting for around 8-9% abv. I am unsure of what yeast to use, i am leaning towards WLP530. I am hoping to get something where the yeast provides some of the flavors. Are there any suggestions for some other belgian style yeast?

BYO did an article a few years back about a smoked pumpkin saison... Looked interesting.

And another from the AHA that does use spice, not out of place in a saison:

I brewed a 7% version of what you're suggesting. I used 2-row, 3% crystal and 7% toasted malt with 530 and a heavy addition of Saaz as a FWH, along with a ton of pumpkin. It was really nice, almost fall-saison like, with its combo of fruitiness, earth and spice. I don't know that 530 is the best yeast here, but it will definitely work.
