I'd try one first - but I don't want to discourage. Dupont is pretty available and is a 'classic' saison. If you like it, their yeast is Wyeast Saison or Whitelabs Saison I(565). The flavor profile is pretty close.
Wyeast Saison is good, Whitelabs 565 can have attenuation issues(Saisons should finish very dry) so be prepared to pitch another already working yeast into it. I've tried WL Saison II(566?) and it is OK. I really want to try their Saison Blend. I just used Wyeast's Forbidden Fruit, but the beers not done yet.
Why not just order 3711?
