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

CaptainTilven (161) - 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.

Garlic_of_Doom (627) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2016
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber with a big, frothy head. No retention. Saison aroma allright, yeasty, herbal, peppery, citrus, some clove. Taste is yeasty, peppery, spicy with some malt sweetness and slightly higher bitterness than other saisons I’ve tried. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry. Bitter after taste.
A tad too sweet and bitter, otherwise a good no fuzz-saison.
