Default Trying my hand at a Cedrella Belgian Tripel

here is the recipe it's based off of chubby kids belgian tripel recipe. I changed out the hops for what I have one hand and subtracted the orange peal and changed the invert sugar to clear candi. I plan on adding the cedrella cubes in secondary. My big question is the yeast, I have not used either of these yeasts before, and I am curious of the flavors I will get with both and which one may benefit from their interactions from the cedrella. So I pose my question to the genius collective here at HBT, what yeast will give me the most traditional belgian ester profile yet maintain some nice spicyness to completment the cedrella. Also from the pros here, a sanity check on the recipe.

I would warn you off of the S-33. I just used it and got terrible attenuation (70%) and the flavor is so so. After using it I went to another forum and found that others were just as dissapointed. If you're brewing a trippel you will want very high attenuation to achieve the dryness that is typical of the style. Good brewin'.

Finally kegged this beast and al I can say is WOW. The cedar nose is wonderful and the it has an upfront sweetness and finishes dry and bitter. Quite possibly one of the best I have done to date!!
