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.

Bottle @ Kolding Ølmesse.
Pours a hazy yellow golden. Good frothy white head. Aroma is lightly tart, subdued hops and lots of spices. Fine mouthfeel that is light and round - rather creamy. Balanced flavour, lightly tart spiciness. Some oranges as well - some weak hops. Lovely balance.
