Default Uerige yeast alternative

I got my hands on a delicious Uerige Doppelsticke Alt and was planning on attempting a clone. Through the wonders of Google I found the brewery has a proprietary yeast.

Has anyone sampled this brewery's beers enough to recommend a good alternative yeast with similar characteristics? (Or at least something to get me in the ballpark)

According to this yeast strain chart, both White Labs and Wyeast carry a strain that is allegedly from the Uerige brewery. I don't know if it's the same strain or not...

Excellent! Thanks for the info and linking that comparison chart. I can see that being very handy.
