It has the extract version at the bottom although it doesn't say what to do with the base malt.

Replace the 4kg Belgian Pale Malt with 3kg Liquid Malt Extract. Steep the specialty malts as set out at the bottom of the recipe.

If you were an all grainer id give you something extremely close. Id go with @PB2 suggestion except. Id change from the danstar dried yeast to wyeast 1214 which is actually the chimay yeast. 

If you have temperature control then for the first 2 days ferment at 20c. Then raise 1c each day till 25c and hold till its done. That will give the chimay taste.

Not sure on your experience level but unless you want to buy a few packs of yeast then make a starter. Google on YouTube for making a yeast starter. A 2 litre starter is about right for that recipe.
