Estery, but not phenolic yeast

I’m looking for a yeast that will give a pretty high ester note, along the bubble gum, nail polish remover, type aroma but also give some low to no phenolic notes. It’s for an experiment really, a “Belgian” IPA using some of the newer, more tropical hops flavor/aroma and pairing a yeast with similar sorts of aromas and flavors. I did a few searches and came up blank so does anyone have any suggestions?

I’d say WY1214. Very estery, low phenolics.

Many thanks, I’ll give it a whirl.

Denny what about 3787.

WLP570 (Duvel) has high pear esters and very low phenols for a belgium.

If you get the temp high enough, you’ll get esters from it, but nothing like from 1214. I use 3787 quite a bit, fermenting in the mid 60s, and find the esters are pretty restrained.

Forgive me, please, but it’s “Belgian” not “Belgium”. That would be like saying “America IPA”.
