For some strains it can make a big difference in reducing diacetyl (1968, etc) or in some cases other off-flavor compounds. Also assists in ensuring fermentation is truly complete.

Another option would be to brew up an IPA and add x % of that really bitter wort into your saison. 1/2 gallon of 80 IBU into 5 gallons adds about 8 IBUs.
