Saison de Dottignies is a high-fermenting saison with a relatively low alcohol content which makes for a well-balanced beer.

Taste: Full of taste, but very drinkable. Heavily-hopped and thirst-quenching - typical of saison-styled beers.

Hops: Challenger, Brewers Gold, Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Styrian Golding

330ml bottle from Beer Boutique. A really great refreshing saison beer. Light gold with a little haze from the sediment. Strong hop bitterness, much more so than is normal for the style. A reasonable amount of hop aroma too, again more than it think is usual for the style. The yeast character, whilst very present was not overpowering and tasted clean rather than funky. I don’t drink a lot of Saison but I could really imagine sinking a few of these on a hot day.

CaptainTilven (154) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2016
Corps orange tirant sur le brun, trouble avec levures visibles; mousse blanche fine, serrée, crémeuse; bulles extrêmement fines à peine visibles. Arômes d’herbe, orange douce; végétal. Première bouche avec une douceur maltée en ouverture très vite rattrapée par une amertume prononcée; de ce fait, très apéritive. Met en valeur les produits de la mer; en l’occurrence, très bien avec des huîtres gratinées aux topinambour et salicorne.
