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

PapaVillum (850) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
Flot grumset og honningfarvet samt ufiltreret Saison med større flygtig offwhite skumtop på 4 cm. Svinder til et par mm. Let sød- og syrlig aroma af citrus og tropisk frugt. Ganske overraskende, en noget bitter domineret smag. Suppleret med en lille bitte sødme. Dog en smule ubalanceret og det bitre grænser næsten til det beske i afslutningen. Middel krop, karboneret på et middel niveau og let perlende mundfølelse. Bitter/besk afslutning. Husker dette bryg mere balanceret, og er man til bitter dominans, er der ikke noget at klage over. 33 cl, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, BB: 23/04/20, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tbonde (305) - DENMARK - OCT 16, 2015
33cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours a slightly hazy golden, with an off white head with good retention. Malty aroma with an earthy note and hints of bread. Taste of more malt and earthines somewhat one-dimensional and more akin to a German beer than a Belgian to my taste. Bitterness comes through in the long aftertaste, but is quite subdued. Carbonation quite low making the beer a little flat and "heavy" Not among my favourite saison’s to be honest, but not a bad beer.

The_Osprey (5954) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
330ml bottle in Blaendulais. 5.5% BB Feb 2020. Dark orange, hazy, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light caramel wafer, some wet cardboard, prune juice maybe. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is crisp, tonic water, lightly woody, dry leaves with a white pepper finish. Very drinkable, decent.

dnicolaescu (1935) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 7, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Almost clear golden, with a sticky creamy head. Smells of flowers and elderberries, a bit earthy too. Tastes very dry with vague floral notes, but not the traditional spice and pepper. Dry long clean bitter finish. Without the sugars, acidity and carbonation, the body feels a little flat, but no big deal. A good one.

Achel (390) - Ioannina, GREECE - SEP 29, 2015
Hazy gold beer. Little cream head. Light dry palate. Fairly dry. Floral note but with a bitter edge. Dry even malt and then some tart orange hop. Finishes dry. Easy drinking.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Belle blonde claire. Nez sur le grain et pointe d'acidité. Palais bien équilibré, acidité/amertume bien dosé. Belle impression générale.

Niet echt fan van. Een biscuit-achtige smaak. Ik had het beter niet gedronken.
