Should be great, but I'd say whatever saison strain you use, for such a small beer I'd only pitch between about 3/4 of the pack. That'll slow fermentation a little, and stress the yeast enough to get some of that saison funk and spice you might not otherwise get in a fast fermentation.
Intentionally underpitching has many many more negative outcomes than positive ones. You should be pitching an appropriate amount of yeast at all times. The yeast will produce the right flavor at the correct pitch rate.

All I'm saying is that it worked for me. Got the right amount of saison character for such a low beer. Still finished in three days.

Agree that it can have many negative outcomes; however, I think you can do it properly with nice results. If you are pitching healthy/active yeast from a starter, those negatives are reduced and underpitching a bit (no more than 20%) to generate some more ester profile is fine.
