I am about to brew a simple wheat beer and due to a lack of any wheat bear yeasts I will be forced to use the following yeast or wait about month until I can brew ... will this work?

1214 Belgian Ale Yeast. Abbey-style top-fermenting yeast, suitable for high-gravity beers. Estery, great complexity with very good alcohol tolerance. Flocculation - medium; apparent attenuation 72-76%. (58-78 F, 14-24 C)

It sounds like it could be OK? Any feedback would be appreciated.

It should be fine. Unless you know exactly what different yeast taste like you and your friends and family shouldn't be able to tell a difference in the yeast.

Why not order it off line??

Thanks for the repsonse. I guess I could go on-line and order but I'm up on Vancouver Island and it would probably cost more than the whole brew to do so.
