Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, - APR 21, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a tulip glass. Nice and bright sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy white head. Quite funky (cellar/basement/dusty) upfront, more so than other typical saisons, slightly grainy, fruit esters, light sugar and yeast notes. Peppery zing on the palate, nice herbal bitterness, dry and refreshing. A hint of floral and citrusy notes in the aftertaste. Zero sweetness. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body and creamy texture. Very rustic, very pleasent.

Diabobale (489) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - MAR 15, 2017
Color dorato carico quasi ambrato, molto velato, con cappello di schiuma bianca fine, non abbondante ma lungamente persistente. Al naso fiori darancio, miele dacacia e crosta di pane. In bocca ancora miele, buccia darancia e pepe. Amaro marcato dai toni erbacei. Corpo medio leggero con carbonazione spinta. Molto gradevole.

Zilverenmaan (110) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2017
Aroma and taste a combination of herbs and some fine, fruity hops. Taste rather delicate: not just an abundance of citrus or grapefruit but well-balanced and complex. Aftertaste medium bitter and lingering.

nihtila (3380) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden. Nose is herbal and hoppy bitter, citrus, yeast, faint fruits. Taste is fizzy, dryish, quite bitter, light spices and yeast. Dry and bitter saison. This may be typical traditional saison but it is not really what I enjoy.

Spab (3628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
750 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a murky golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is lemon, crab apple, grains and white pepper. Flavour is very lemony and fairly dry with graininess, a sort of peppery spiciness and some other fruitiness. Dry finish. Nice.

robinvboyer (4407) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2017
Crisp, refreshing, and quite hoppy for a saison. Strong bitterness, big lemon oil, and citrus zest aromas and flavours with some strong malted wheat. A great session saison, a great example of a free fleshing everyday Belgian style saison that everyone can enjoy, very well rounded and balanced.

RudiGR (17) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2017
Gekocht bij Dranken Maes in Dendermonde op 10-10-2016. En geproefd op 24-12-2016. Saison de Dottignies is amberkleurig en helder van uitzicht. Bij het uitschenken krijg je veel wit dik-wollig schuim met een normale stabiliteit. Maar na enkele slokken blijft er van dit schuim echter niet veel meer over, enkel nog wat "atolletjes en eilandjes". Het schuim blijft wel sterk aan het glas kleven. Niet al te veel CO2 verzadiging te zien met middelmatig grootte belletjes. Saison de Dottignies heeft vooral een hopbitter aroma met nog wat appel en citrus en ook lichtjes iets wat me deet denken aan witte bloemen. De smaak is tamelijk hopbitter. In de mond krijg je een volle smaak gevoel, kwa textuur is Saison de Dottignies volmondig en hij is normaal prikkelend. Door de bitterheid krijg je evenwel toch een samentrekkend totaalgevoel. De nasmaak vloeit zeer lang uit en deze hopbitterheid blijft zeer lang hangen. Geen uitschieter maar wel een leuk biertje. 3 op 5.

Bottle, 330 ml from Beergium, shared with Max and JFK10000. Pours golden, medium white head. Bit spicy, citrus notes, yeasty, soft to average carbo. Sweet. Medium bodied. OK; but nothing special.

adamnowek (2292) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2017
Cloudy yellow colour. Aroma is yeast, spice, and lemon zest. Taste is citric with some lingering herbal notes. Super drinkable but not super exciting.
