Has anyone used WLP720 Sweet Mead instead of Wyeast 3463 Forbidden Fruit?

Where I am, Wyeast 3463 is no longer available for purchase (the importer has stopped carrying it) which is a real pain as I use it in one of my "house" beers.

I have read online that White Labs WLP720 Sweet Mead may be a substitute, but has anyone already tried it? I ask as the local homebrew suppliers can only order a full box for me, which is rather expensive.

Thanks!

Have not tried sweet mead...but recent issue of BYO has recipe for several beers from Allagash in Maine and they recommend Wyeast 3463 as a yeast, with their other options being White Labs 400 Belgian Wit, Imperial B44 Whiteout, or SafAle K-97...so I assume these yeasts are similar?
