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.

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle @ Unibirra Calcinate del Pesce. giallo dorato, velata con schiuma bianca grossolana persistente. aroma complesso, floreale (non avrei detto sambuco se non avessi letto gli ingredienti, ma il profilo aromatico è ben definito) con evidenti accenni di frumento e fruttato agrumato. Note erbacee e speziatura, meno intense ma presenti. Gusto secco, acidulo, decisamente fresco al palato, quasi pungente. Poco calda e non molto carbonata. Equilibrata ed armonica.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2014
Sample at Zythos 14. Pale blond. Fruit and spices, just the right amount of funk. Very pleasant little beer. Pineapple, pepper, barnyard.

EddyBeer1 (926) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2013
Blonde voilée, effervescence forte, mousse abondante et persistante. A peine les malts se sont-ils installés que les fleurs de sureau et le houblon se mettent dans la place et s’installent dans le palais, donnant à la bière une amertume pour le moins fleurie et légèrement fruitée. Audacieux, même si déconcertant de prime abord.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2013
(Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, 23 Oct 2013) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of white bread, peaches and hay. Malty, fruity taste with grass, hay, peaches, grainy malt and a fairly dry finish with a spicy bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Quite tasty and very well balanced. Very nice and highly drinkable saison.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle 0.33l at moeder lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours hazy yellow, small lacing white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is yeasty, hops, slightly sour. Taste is dry, no sweetness, medium bitter with a slight touch of elderflower. Interesting Saison. Refreshing. Elderflower makes the difference here. Good.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pale hazy yellow with a bubbly white head. Slightly fruity yeast aroma, some malt, and with herbal and pepper notes. Dry with grainy pilsner malt flavour and a touch of elderflower. The elderflower bush green flavour that dominates the aftertaste is not entirely pleasant

rorykinnear (4) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2013 does not count
Green glass 750ml. **Aroma - Totally skunked, like strongest I have ever smelled, aroma subsided after a few sips. **Appearance - Light, white, and hazy. **Taste - Skunk aroma sort of overwhelmed everything at first, eventually I got that elderflower and other light citric notes, could be very refreshing on a hot day. **Palate - Super light, for the style I am inclined to say ok on that, like a lemonade beer without the sour. ** Overall - Experience ruined by the skunk, at 5% this is a more traditional old style saison, a farmhand’s mid-summer quaff.
