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

On tap at the Avenue Pub. Hazy blond a medium white head. Citrus and some herbs. Sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Decent saison, but does not have the expected "kick.".

ContemplateBeer (1945) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle from Old Town. Aroma: Moderately musty lemon pepper; dried wildflowers; slight gum. Appearance: Hazy, unfiltered deep caramel gold with a foamy, towering white head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: More gummy/floral up front than the nose would suggest; more musty/peppery towards the finish, which dries up completely and is bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A superior beer and worth a try for any beer lover.

beer-yum (1242) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2016
Restrained funky floral aroma in a golden pour. Lovely dry hop malt balance and lower than usual strength makes this an excellent example of the style - and one I might prefer to the benchmark (DuPont). Very tasty.

DutchMark (340) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Nice. Deep yellow with just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is fresh with malts, yeast and resinous bitter hops. Most saisons have some citrus and spice. Not on this one but it is well brewed and very tasty.

Simonh82 (3) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016 does not count
330ml bottle from Beer Boutique. A really great refreshing saison beer. Light gold with a little haze from the sediment. Strong hop bitterness, much more so than is normal for the style. A reasonable amount of hop aroma too, again more than it think is usual for the style. The yeast character, whilst very present was not overpowering and tasted clean rather than funky. I don’t drink a lot of Saison but I could really imagine sinking a few of these on a hot day.

phfyysik (502) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours golden with bubbling head. Aroma is old socks, vinegar, cheese, light mud, some fruits. Taste is sharp, bitter, spicy, old socks, rotten sewerage, dishwasher water. Not so good as I hoped.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy, deep gold/orange body. Frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, toasted grain, basement cobwebs, pepper, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Tastes of citrus lemon, mustiness, pepper. Crisp, clean, well balanced. Excellent.
