I have also used citrus type hops in my saison... Citra, Motueka all work well. Never used Hallertauer... I also use a little bit of pepper (1.5 - 2 tsp) in mine because I like that hint of pepper notes. Some yeasts will give you that peppery note, but I like it with just a little bit more spicyness.

It will ferment cooler but not put off the same flavors/intensity of flavors.

I guess it's a question of how intense you like it. I would be afraid fusal alcohols would dominate the flavor profile if you are much above 80 degrees for the start of fermentation.

The great thing about saison is that you can take it almost any direction. I think Saison Dupont is made with only pilsner malt. Agree with others that 3711 is great yeast and will chew through anything almost.
