Water Buffalo Yogurt

I spotted tubs of Société-Orignal Water Buffalo Yogurt at La Bête à Pain on Fleury street (Ahunsic area) selling for 8$. After doing some Internet research on the product, I came up with very little in the way of people who have tasted or commented on it.

The following article talks about recent Can/Qc government funding being granted to Élevages Buffalo Maciocia (the only water buffalo dairy farm in Quebec) to further process/develop water buffalo milk products in Quebec:

Has anyone tried the cheese or yogurt from this dairy farm? Any comments/suggestions?

As with cheeses in general, I know mozzarella di bufala cheese in Italy is necessarily a local product and notoriously impossible to replicate outside of Italy because the taste/texture of the cheese is inextricably connected to the climate and diet of the buffalo there. Are water buffalo milk products to be valued in there own right regardless of where they are produced? Does Quebec have some sort of unique/favorable edge in terms of producing water buffalo milk products? Just curious if anyone has any thoughts on this.
