COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Quevillon (2863) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Drank on tap (8 oz) at Dieu du Ciel Montreal on May 29, 2013. Golden honey, thin head. Hoppy peaches aroma, light grain notes. Taste dry herbs, a little sour citrus, dry herbs bitterness. It is hot and humid at this time, it drinks very well!

allmyvinyl (9248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Pours a beautiful clear gold, with a good white long lasting head. High carbonation, good for the style. Aroma has dry yeastiness, with a whiff of orange zest. That’s there on the taste too, but very dry, very dry. Finish is well balanced, could drink a lot of this - not outstanding, but very good.

Oklar, citron färgad med stort, fast, lätt färgat skum. Doft: Jäst, stall, halm, örter, nyklippt gräs. Smak: Humle, mandarin, örter, gräs, omoget granatäpple, jäst, persika. Fresh och svalkande att sippa på.

PalCabral (158) - SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2013
Large bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber into the glass. The head is thick and frothy, indicating perhaps the use of wheat in the mash? The aroma is interesting, citrus and yeasty, not bad. The taste is unfortunately more bland or should I say one-dimensional. The hops take over and the softness in the palate cannot compensate for the lack of other flavors than prickly hoppiness. It’s a good representative for Saisons and effective in being giving more thirst. Unfortunately, the taste lacks some complexity and it is likely the chaser will be another beer altogether.

Vignale (3207) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2013
Stor flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, grumligare för varje glas, stor vitt skum. Typisk saisondoft med örter, gräs och jäst. Stiltypisk smak men kanske något söt, frisk, lätt, örtig, jästig, färsk svartpeppar, viss citrussmak och beska. Fina rena smaker, ganska snäll. Mycket trevlig!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Blonde foncée trouble, mousse légère. Amertume moyenne, très léger goût de fruits, légèrement épicée. Une bonne Saison.

hay, dough, golden, cloudy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Doesn’t have the barnyard saison aroma’s, but a very nice dry refreshing saison with some pepper notes.
