Yeah I was going to suggest midnight wheat, carafa special, or some type of debittered black malt. I would remove the special roast but that's just me.

I prefer my saisons pretty light in color. I also use lighter munich (10L) @ about 15-20% which only gets me to the lower SRM limit of 5 I think.
On Tap/Bottled:                       
Kottbusser Summer / Mexican Vienna / XPA #5 / Baltic Porter / LeRye Golsch / American Extra Bitter
              
Fermenting: GoschaLagerBier
Up Next: XPA #6: Comet/Cascade/ahtanum, saison

I appreciate everyone's input.  As it turns out, my LHBS does have Dark Munich!  $2.50/lb., but problem solved!
