10 is perfection, and is almost unattainable. Anything below a 6 is undrinkable.
Bottle shops are a great way to try different beers. Saison De Dottigner from Brouwerij De Ranke is a beer that I purchased at one visit with my good friend and fellow beer nerd, Mike. Cheers, Mike!
Saison De Dottignies has a hazy body clarity, as it is an unfiltered beer. It has an orange body color and the head is off-white, foamy in texture and of average size. As the beer sits, the head dissipates to form a thin layer that stays until the last sip.
The aroma is a light bready malt, nice pear notes and earthy yeast. This saison has a nice spice from the hops with a pleasant bitterness. There is also an earthy flavor from the yeast and a dry white wine finish that is clean and satisfying.
This is a very good beer that I enjoyed drinking. If you ever have the opportunity to purchase a bottle or two, do it. You will be happy that you did.
