Yeast is listed. Huyghe pitches WLP570 *and* S-04. I've got a batch just out of warm conditioning. Wrong glasses, I know (all my goblets were dirty), but I'm submitting this one for my LHBS annual competition in a couple months and wanted to get an early taste-test alongside the real thing. Care to guess which is the clone?

Pic update. Here's a glass of Pink Elephant, properly aged. Still tastes spectacular.

I just pulled first pint of mine. Wow what great fing beer. My color is off . Little lighter. I have more banana taste in mine but that's the yeast. Uses Wlp550. Started in low 60s then ramped up to 70 over a week. Drinking in 5 weeks. Cold conditioned for 2 weeks. Clear as Hell

Here's mine next to the real thing... I only carbdd mine to 3 vols CO2 cuz I didn't want bottle bombs. Color is very close. A touch sweeter Belgiany nose on the DT, and a sweeter finish. Otherwise the taste is spot on. Next time I'd reduce the dry yeast a bit to get a little more Belgian character.

Thanks for the recipe!
