I cultured yeast from a bottle of Chimay Blue. You could use WLP500 or whatever belgian style yeast you like. Heck a wit yeast would even be nice.

I think that I am going to brew this. How did the rye malt come through on this beer?

The beer is excellent, and to be honest, it keeps getting better with age. I can't really pick up the rye, but what this ale has right now, i had a bottle this weekend, is a nice spicy/fruity nose (spice from the rye maybe?) and a soft velvety mouthfeel. layers of caramel flavor as well with the smallest hint of roast there...maybe from the special B/Biscuit.

I would brew this again without hesitation.

I may pitch this on a Trappist High Grav yeast cake I am about to have from a Golden Strong I am making.

Did you do anything interesting with the oats? Cook them on the stove first?

Going to give it a shot tomorrow. Looks like a lot of fun.
