4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
