Not familiar with that yeast, but I put some vanilla extract in a Wit beer with WLP410 a couple months back. The natural sweet esters that the yeast threw were perfectly complimented with the vanilla I thought. It was a very popular beer with women who weren't big beer fans. It was just refreshing enough to be popular with most male drinkers as well.
