I'll third that. I want to brew a couple saisons this summer and Le Merle would be a great start!

This used to be my favorite saison, but I never followed through on trying to clone it. I can, however, tell you that I've measured the final gravity of the commercial version to be in the 1.003 range at 60*F and from that and the fact that it's 7.8% ABV IIRC you can get a decent start on the recipe. let us know how it turns out!
