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

ronaldtheriot (1746) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Saison De Dottignies has a thin, white head, a murky, bright gold-orange appearance, noticeable beige yeast chunks roiling about, and almost no lacing left on the glass. Once the bottom, caked sediment is swished loose and poured in, the beer takes on a juice look (think of apricot juice). The aroma is of peach cobbler, sweet bread, sourdough bread, light caramel candy, and honey biscuits. Taste is the same, with some lower-level bitterness dancing about. There may also be nougat, mild nuts, and powdered sugar-covered beignets. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Saison De Dottignies finishes on the dry and drinkable side. Lovely stuff, but odd for the style. RJT

Freaky_tiki (1014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Sunburnt afternoon pour brings this fantastic saison. A lush finger of foam covers the hazy golden beer. Pepper spices, lemon peel, herbal flourishes, farmhouse funkadelic goodness. Dig that crazy champagne mouthfeel. Even more impressive is the super dry finish. After a week of saison explorations, this is a fine one to finish with. Highly recommended.

33cl bottle. Clear golden pour with thin off-white head, little lacing. Aromas of bread, leather and herbs. Taste is heavily bitter dry and somewhat sour. Lively but low carbonation, slick palate. Aftertaste is short and bitter with great crisp finish. Great beer, but too bitter for the style.
