COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with elderflower.

Saison Cazeau is a light white beer, refermented in the bottle, with 5% alcohol content. As well as the Pilsen malt and two hops which give it a really nice bitter flavour, Saison is laced with elderflowers (Sambucus Nigra L.) which make it really refreshing. The elderflower only blooms for three weeks between mid-May and mid-June, which means that production of our Saison is very time-limited.

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer. Cloudy gold in colour, with a big, tight white head and plenty of carbonation. Light, wheaty aroma with some lemon and floral hops. Flavour of citrus fruits, spice and yeast with a dryish finish. Didn’t detect any elderflowers. Ok.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2010
330 ml bottle that claimed to be 750 ml (was not fooled by this) @ Gallows Bird. Poured hazy yellow with an abundant creamy white head. The aroma was yeasty and spicy with a floral character. The flavour was very dry with lots of bitterness from the hops. Could not distinguish the taste of elderflower.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2010
0.33 l bottle.Hazy yellow brown color, spritzy appearance. Fruity, spicy, flowery and perfumed aroma with grapefruit. Dry spicy flavor with yeasty bitterness, flowery perfume, orange and pepper. There are some nice Belgian vibes but the yeasty bitterness is somewhat disturbing.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2010
750ml from Capone’s, Norristown. Huge prickly carbonation makes this beer boom out of the bottle, with an unruly head and some decent lacing. Pleasant golden body if you can find it. The nose is quite sharp, almost spicy, with a touch of fruitiness in there. You can’t really ignore the presence of the flowers, which give it a kind of raw, earthen quality in the taste. While I enjoy that dimension, it does kind of crowd the other qualities out. Not bad.

Biscuits and light flowery fruit. Cloves are apparent in the aroma also. Very drinkable.

tlind2 (1144) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. Slighty cloudy golden color, lasting white head. Spicy lemon aroma, which follows through to the flavor. Some chalky notes and malts as well. Medium body, high carbonation. Not the best saison I’ve had, but not bad either.
