Default BFM √225 Saison Clone?

Has anyone cloned Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes' √225 Saison? I have not yet brewed a saison and want to make one very soon, and this BFM's √225 Saison is probably my favorite representation of the style. I'd like to start with this one and compare against other recipes to eventually come up with something that I find "just right".

Thanks!!

I'm tasting this for the first time right now and wow! This is something different from everything else I've tasted. It's acidic, so there has to be a twist to the mash or fermentation which I have to find out how to do.

Just had this yesterday. Tasty beer. More of a table-saison with some more sourness than you usually get in a saison.

I pulled some of the dregs and put them on a slant. Hoping they take so I can use them this Spring.

Anyone know what their base strain is? Website says that they rely on some wild yeast from the wine barrels they age this in.
