Quite a few places in the UK have had stock of Saison D'epeautre recently. Beergonzo have it online.

1.054 OG ended as 1.003 which is 6.7%ABV, but it's so light you'd never guess it from the taste.
I know it's rude to blow your own trumpet but after 5 or 6 months I've just tried one of my last bottles of Saison. Wow! Amazingly clean. It isn't as bone dry as I remembered. I'll be brewing next summer and not touching it for ages. I made it with a reasonable amount of hops, which I think were Hallertauer Blanc.
