Well it depends what you want. Willamette would be the most appropriate for a “classic” Belgian profile since they use a good deal of English hops. The bolder American hops are used from time to time and can mesh well with a Belgian yeast, but it is more hit or miss to my tastes. Good luck.

I have a Saison on tap right now that I loaded with just Amarillo hops. It's fantastic!! I think Simcoe could work equally well.
