COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Sebourg beer, this was rebaptized Saint Druon de Sebourg in 2000.
Malted barley and 3 varieties of hops grown in Alsace form the basis of this recipe, which, unlike Duyck’s other beers, also contains wheat from the Beauce region of France, milled in the traditional way by Sebourg’s miller. And to give it an even more distinctive flavour, the Duyck’s use a specific strain of yeast exclusive to the beer.
St. Druon de Sebourg is the French version of a blonde abbey ale, similar in style to those found across the nearby border in Belgium. It is spicy and effervescent, and much hoppier than typical bière de garde.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle, 75cl corked. (6%) Pours a clear, golden-orange body, with a big, fluffy, white head, leaving nice lacings. The aroma is mostly grainy, but it s also fruity and slightly spicy, but quite subdued. The mouthfeel is medium to full, with a good deal of co2, and sweetish. Far from overly sweet though. It has a quite fruity flavor, with grains and bitterness finding it’s way after a second or two, and some notes of cellar in the background. It finishes rather dry, with a nice fruity bitterness. A very drinkable beer, which maybe could have gotten a higher score, partly due to that, then again, maybe I was just thirsty. Anyway, I liked the bitterness in it. (071022)
