Default Leffe Clone - Pride of Ringwood Substitute?

I am getting ready to order what I need for a Leffe Blonde Ale clone, but can't seem to locate Pride of Ringwood hops anywhere.

Does anyone know where I might currently be able to get these, or could someone recommend a good substitute for this hop?

The recipe I am working off of is located here:

Thanks,
BWM

good substitution, not sure, but from what I have been told they were more or less wiped out during the hop shortage

Hard to find. Any of the noble hops would be good. I used Saaz and Styrian Goldings in my Leffe Clone recipe.

Palmer's website says try Cluster hops.

By the way, if it comes out good, let us know. I love leffe and wouldnt' mind making a clone brew.

Based on advice from Reelale I am going to use the recipe I linked to in my OP but will be substituting 1.5 oz of Saaz for the 0.5 oz Pride of Ringwood.

Hopefully it turns out well. Can't wait to try it. Will probably brew the weekend of May 1st
