I think I remember reading that the S. diastaticus strain sold under the name French Saison is apparently from a French brewery but they get the stock from a Belgian yeast bank.

Had a pint of this last night, and I'm pleased with the results.  It's not what I expected, in that I was expecting a hop forward beer, with the yeast providing some complexity, and this beer is definitely yeast driven, with a little hoppy backnotes (despite me fermenting slightly below the recommended temp range).  I'd definitely use the yeast again, it was very easy to deal with and has the benefit of being stocked by my LHBS.

Thanks for the update. Would you say that it is indeed similar to 3711 and perhaps Belle Sasion?

Having drunk a commercial beer made with WY3711 last week, I think they are probably the same yeast, or at least very similar.
