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.

Swaroga (1462) - Brussels, - NOV 10, 2012
33cl bottle. Clear yellow with big, snowy white head. Nose : Soap, citrus, yeast, straw. Sip : Low density with oily texture. Medium carbonation. The beer is slightly malty comparable to a regular pils with notes of straw and lemon zest. It develops zesty and bitter mouth with some delicate mettalic notes. It is really easy to drink and a good balance between malts, aromas and bitter hops. I would enjoy it much more in the summer though.

RichardGretton (4294) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is quite grassy with dryness, and the flavour is dry and bitter with a degree of spices and a hint of sourness. Overall a nice dry and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wvhoran (368) - Tasmania, - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear and golden with a huge but diminishing white head. The aroma has notes of light malt, wheat, lemon, elderflowers. The flavour is smooth with the elderflowers being very present, a bit of a funny savoury note. Enjoyable.
