Default sam adams white ale clone - yeast choice?

I'm thinking of doing one of the white ale clones listed here:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/sam-...hite-ale-6062/

In trying to keep it close to Sam Adams, should I use the wlp008 yeast - which I guess is the white labs version of Sam Adams yeast? Or should I stick with a belgian wit yeast?

Thanks

You can use any ale yeast and it will turn out great. I think liquid yeast results in a little better quality at the finish. But, it cost a lot more. S-05 is a nice dry yeast.

Nottingham is ok, but it ferments to fast and does not clean up after itself well.

I usually stick with liquid yeast as I just like them better so my opinion may be a little skewed, I would use either Belgian Wit Ale WLP400 or Wyeast Belgian Witbier 3944.
