PalCabral (162) - - MAY 19, 2013
Large bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber into the glass. The head is thick and frothy, indicating perhaps the use of wheat in the mash? The aroma is interesting, citrus and yeasty, not bad. The taste is unfortunately more bland or should I say one-dimensional. The hops take over and the softness in the palate cannot compensate for the lack of other flavors than prickly hoppiness. Its a good representative for Saisons and effective in being giving more thirst. Unfortunately, the taste lacks some complexity and it is likely the chaser will be another beer altogether.

jesperhammer (4621) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2017
14-APR-2017, bottle @home, from Arne, Westmarket. Hazy orange with a huge, very lively, off-white head. Big bubbles, very noicy (!) but dies quickly. Aroma is yeast, spice, fruit, brett. Taste the same. More fruity though with fruity malt and orange peel, toast. Lively carbonation, dry. Nice.

Serapac (447) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy ocre, smaller white head. Aroma typical Belgian yeast, some banana, cloves. Pleasantly smooth, rather full bread-like mouthfeel.

alteregoo (1307) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Obfita, mydlana piana, szybko redukująca się do chmurki. Barwa złota, klarowna. W aromacie nuty ziołowe, przyprawowe, słodowo ciasteczkowe. W smaku fajna biszkoptowa podstawa słodowa, delikatna słodowa słodycz szybko kontrowana jest ziołami, sianem, dość wyraźną goryczką chmielową. Pijalność zwiększa średnie, grube wysycenie, ktre na szczęście nie jest wysokie jak w szampanie czy sporej ilości belgw...
Fajne piwo gaszące pragnienie, na plus solidna goryczka i ziołowy profil, może nieco zbyt słodowa podstawa, a do pełni szczęścia przydałoby się więcej nutek funky...

Diabobale (493) - 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 (134) - 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 (3441) - 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 (3683) - 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 (4433) - 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 (23) - 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.
