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 Mittelfrh, Styrian Golding

Garlic_of_Doom (628) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2016
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber with a big, frothy head. No retention. Saison aroma allright, yeasty, herbal, peppery, citrus, some clove. Taste is yeasty, peppery, spicy with some malt sweetness and slightly higher bitterness than other saisons Ive tried. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry. Bitter after taste.
A tad too sweet and bitter, otherwise a good no fuzz-saison.
