Once upon a time, a poor homebrewer was lamenting the lack of time that the modern world allowed him for his hobby. He had the ingredients for a batch of Tripel and a batch of IPA, but the demands of home and work life were such that he had no opportunity to brew them, so he cried to sleep. While he slept, a collective of Ardennes Forest Beer Gnomes (Houblonmonstres, in Flemish) came into his house and pitied the poor homebrewer. They decided they'd brew his beer for him.

Unfortunately, the Gnomes were already three sheets when they broke into his home, so they combined the ingredients for the two batches. This recipe results from their drunken meddling: an elegant, pale, strong abbey ale infused with American and continental hops. You're going to have to do the brewing yourself, though.
