Named for the town where it is made, Saison de Dottignies from De Ranke Brewery is a Saison that pours a hazy gold color with a thin to medium white head.

Aromas include vanilla, pear and apple, sweet orange and lemon.

Taste follows a similar profile and includes light sourness and hop bitterness to balance the fruit.

The mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied with an ABV at 5.5%; the finish is lingering, dry and bitter.

Food Pairings

Pair with curried dishes or with fish; also goes great with earthy cheeses such as Camembert and Fontina or nutty cheeses such as Asiago.

The De Ranke Brewery was founded in 1996 by good friends Nino Bacelle and Guido Devos, hobby brewers who turned a part-time obsession into a successful commercial venture.

At first brewing only on weekends using the equipment and facilities of an existing craft brewery, De Ranke soon established a reputation for producing robust and flavorful ales with a massive hops profile; hops, in their philosophy, are the single most important ingredient in any ale. They embraced traditional brewing methods (without eschewing helpful new technologies) and used only the freshest natural ingredients like real hop flowers instead of cheap hop extracts like many of their larger more commercially driven counterparts.

As a result, De Ranke brews grew steadily in popularity and demand; in the late 2000s, De Ranke was able to relocate to its own brewery in Dottignies in the Hainaut province of Belgium.

Today, De Ranke Brewery exports award winning hop-centric ales to nine different countries including the United States, India, France and Japan.
