Depending on how you do it, it could be very cool. If you were looking for a less-sour beer, you could pitch the saison yeast, let it do its thing, then add the 655.

However, if you want a relatively sour beer, I would think that adding the 565 at the same time as the 655 would be a waste of the 565...given that the 655 already has a belgian ale yeast in the mix, I don't know if the 565 would really add that much to the beer.

Keep in mind Brett will process much of the esters and phenols produced by the yeast, so you will lose much of the saison character over time.

I'm planning something similarly dubious:

No matter what I'm sure it'll be nice and funky.

I just did one with Saison 568 and Brett Lambic blend (which I had sitting around)... I need to bottle it soon... but as said earlier it is missing quite a bit of the "saison-esque" esters and phenols.
