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.

The aroma had light malt, honey, caramel, and hints of citrus and coriander with spicy saaz hops. The beer poured a light borwn, clear color with thin lasting head and lacing. The flavor had caramel, molasses, honey, spicy saaz hops, coriander, and hints of citrus. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated while being warm and wet. This was a 750ml bottle from Holiday Wine Celllars in Escondido, CA. The label had a note of "Ano 1110" on the front and on the ring label at the neck.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
75 cl bottle; Bright clear with tight white head. Nose is fruity and hoppy with some acid. Flavor of hops (saaz?) and some sweetnes. There is a "dusty" tone that i do not really car efor, but still a good and easy drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is light with high, but not too high, carbonation.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Pale to medium gold beer with light lacing, very aromatic, exotic even, scents of lychee, perhaps spinach, mango, grassy like a good spanish cheese (quesa de serena in particular) with a faint musty hint, also fresh bisquits or a cracker factory. Wonderful off-tart flavor with a lemon and shortbread thing goin’ on, a hint of mustard, all most light rye flavored, down to the carraway. Has biere de garde like "cellar character" but refined and clean somehow, probably a great food beer. Defies categorization but very very nice!

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Pours a nice cloudy golden color. Not much head. Slight wine nose, some spice. Spicy and earthy flavor but thin body.

The pour was dark cloudy amber color with a two finger white head. The nose was great. It had a bready yeasty malty and fruity. The taste is mild compared to the nose. it is bready maltly sweet with hints of fruit. It would also be very good cellared

12 ounce bottle from the Beer of the Month Club, poured into a Belgian fishbowl glass. Bright yellow color, mostly clear with a wispy white head that recedes quickly. Lots of fruity esters -- apples, lemons, grapes and berries aromas give this a nice bouquet. Lemony tart taste with some yeasty bready qualities. Some grassy and hay flavors as well give this a complex flavor. Lite to medium mouthfeel, well carbonated. Nice, refreshing enjoyable beer that I thought went well in the late weekend afternoon. Would pair nicely with a tossed or caesar salad. According to BOMC, this is an example of the Biere de Garde that the northern French area is known for.

hero12 (180) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Pours a dark yellow color, nose is yeast, alcohol, and some fruity notes. Very tart flavor, alcohol really shows through even though it’s only 6%. Very smooth, light bodied, and a small amount of carbonation. Not bad but not good.

Goba (71) - BRAZIL - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Nice opaque orange with white foam, citric aroma with hints of malt, nuts, earth and oat. Strong malt flavor,along with oat, spice and some fruitness. Lasting bitter aftertaste, with floral and spicy touches. Dense body. Some unbalance going on to the bitter side.

letsbeer (10) - BRAZIL - JUN 22, 2008
Cerveja predominantemente feminina, doce, quase sem amargor, média-baixa carbonatação e bem frutada. Bom equilíbrio, final suave e limpo. É uma boa cerveja para o que se propõe.

A solid beer overall but somewhat lacking in flavor in comparison to Belgian abbey ales.
