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.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Light grassy aroma, with sweet, honeyish malt. Brassy gold color with a decent white head. There is some very light lacing. Thin bodied. Thin fruit flavors, a bit of sour. Light yeasty spice notes. The finish is dry, and there is a bit of bitter! Reasonably flavorful. Grows on one.

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle (aged about one year) in NYC with Chris. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a fine, white head. Aroma is doughy bread, subtle spice, light tartness (which doesn’t come through in the flavor, thankfully) and some aged malts. Flavor is sweet, more bread, light yeast and spice, a bit of caramel and honey. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, bit of bread, caramel, honey. There is some age coming through but it works alright. Faint sharpness, but only faint. Overall very enjoyable.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
75 cl. It’s stale with a lot of carbonation and a weak aroma. The flavour is stale with weak floral notes of clover and citrus. Boring and I have to give up before the bottle is empty...
