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

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Tangerine pour with a layer of fine white bubbles so dense they look like you could walk on them and they’d hold you up. Soft earth and leather nose, with a distinct torrified wheat edge. A cold sea air quality develops a bit deeper in the glass. Dry peppery flavor, a bit of melon, just a little resin bitterness in the finish. Very pleasant as it is, though I suspect there is some level of brightness missing from this beer after the long journey. Closer to the source, I can picture this being remarkable.

guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016
Couleur ambrée/orangée, belle mousse blanche bulleuse et tenace. Nez équilibré entre le houblon herbeux et résineux, le levure avec des notes de baneton, et senteurs de céréales. L’attaque est plus franchemnt sur le houblon, amère, sèche, des notes d’herbe fraiche. Puis l’amertume s’estompant, elle laisse une petite place aux levures et au malt légèrement caramélisé. Pour la finale, on revient sur le houblon. La carbo est excellente, le corps léger tout comme l’alcool, la longueur magnifique. Superbe bière, tout en équilibre.

Icedwarf (1272) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
Donkergeel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van banaan en abrikoos.

gingertipple (15) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2016
I was quite excited when I poured my first glass. The aroma was spot on and it poured nice and clear with a pale to golden color. The aftertaste in the mouth was pleasant. What let it down was the taste. The was an overriding bitterness which was unpleasant and it lacked body.

MPA (958) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden with good white head. Aroma yeast, citrus, clover, flowers and grain. Sweet malt flavour with spiciness and a dry hoppy finish. Very nice.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Lightly hazed golden colored liquid. Moderate sized, off-white head that looks rather creamy as it settles. Light caramel with hop and yeast notes in the nose. Light floral and citrus along with bits of a dry barn. Solid nose, but nothing overwhelming. Full feel, but plenty of zip to keep it from felling too heavy. Lightly sweet with some dry malt in the background. Mild citrus and wood in the middle to finish. Saison Light. 7/10

750ml bottle pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is grain some berries spice and a little floral note. Taste is more of the malty belg notes spice soap and floral.
