COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table … " Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing. We wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time. As Laurent Agache’s

Swaroga (1953) - 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.

tom10101 (4789) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle (330 ml). Best before 16/07/2017, Thanks to SlovakSniper for this one! Clear bright golden with a small white head, good retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is soft with flowers and cereals as the main features but also backed by mild spiciness/peppery presence, farmhouse notes and mild lemony notes. Taste is also quite floral with cereals taking a lot of place in the flavor profile. There’s also peppery notes, lemon/lime and mineral notes. Medium body. Bright carbonation. Dry and floral finish with a mild refreshing lemony touch. A simple yet effective and quenching cereal forward Saison. Quite dry. Good.

electrotype (558) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
C’est timide au nez mais extrêmement raffraichissant en bouche! C’est léger, floral, mais loin d’être simple. Le corps est bien, c’est très vivant. Je n’aurais pas reconnu les fleurs de sureau en tant que tel mais, en le sachant, on voit que ça fait du sens. Il y a une bonne astringence, probablement dûe à ces fleurs. Franchement très agréable!

rodenbach99 (3986) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
Style et résumé: Une belle saison aux fleurs de sureau.
Comment: Bouteille expiration 16/07/17.
Portrait: Un liquide jaune trouble avec une mousse épaisse. Un nez de fleurs fraiches de sureau noir, j’ai un arbre à la maison, de cordial, de blé et de levure saison. Une bouche sèche, fraiche, agréable, saveurs de sureau, chèvrefeuille et autres fleurs blanches. Finale franche légèrement aigre sur du blé surit.
Note: 7+/10

Mister_Li (628) - GERMANY - APR 12, 2016
Bottle from bartlebier, many thanks! Trübes goldgelbes Bier mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, hefig, blumig, etwas Pfeffer, leicht fruchtig, spritzig, sehr erfrischend.

JorgeLee (1612) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Light yellow colour, billowing white head, lots of carbonation. Unusual mixture of a very fizzy and dry beer with the rich sweetness of the elderflower. The whole ended up a tiny bit cloying and less drinkable. Interesting though - I’d have it again but wouldn’t necessarily hunt it down.

Bottle, 330 ml from MBR. Pours golden with medium white head. Malty, citrus, spicy, herbal notes. Sweetish with some bitterness in finish.

TheFoamhead (259) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2016
A hazy pale apricot color, reminding a bit of a ’new wine’ and a fine, bright white head of good stability are absolutely inviting! A fine aroma hits your nose, offering some hints of brett, a very subtle sweet flowery touch from the sureau flowers and a nice bitterness. The dry bitterness becomes dominant in the taste without taking the freshness of this thirst-quenching brew. The relatively high carbonation together with the fresh taste make this a perfect summer companion. Nicely balanced, clearly brewed, no wonder this is a gold medal winner!
