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.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Bottle at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Clear, yellow ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Floral, spicy nose with lesser notes of fuzzy fruit, biscuit and wildflower honey. Malty and sweet with hints of honey and toffee in the flavor. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly sweet finish.

Maria (10194) - 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...

shrubber85 (9630) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle. Grassy barnyard and sour malt aroma. Cloudy tan color with small head. Light flavor of grass/hay and sour malt with moderate hops finish. Nice tasting - has quite a bit of hops kick but fairly light body - wish it had a stronger flavor.

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2005
Bottle. Light gold with a small white head of bubbles. Aromas are light and fruity with citrus, yeast and spices. Flavours are light, sweet buttery malts with citrus fruit. Lightly flavoured but still pleasant.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange-kissed golden colour. Very thick sticky head. Aroma is quite earthy with a dank mustiness. Lots of basementy funky character. As it warms more sweet fruity character comes to the fore. Apricot, pear and apple along with a nice honey/caramel sweetness. Not really spicy per se, but the blend of fruit, fruit skins, and sweetness is quite compelling. A light herbal/grassy bitterness along with a white peppery bite. A bit of lemon and orange tartness as it starts to warm up. I quite like it.

DocLock (8984) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Gold pour with 1-finger creamy white head. Aroma of some funky yeast, hopcitrus, apricot, and slight florals. The taste is floral and hopcitric, with mid-palate yeasty funk and spice. This one gets a bit fruitier and less dry as it warms up.

marcus (8299) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 25, 2005
This golden ale pours with no head. There is an initially sweet hoppy flavor with a slightly bitter finish. A bit watery tasting at first, but the flavor intensifies as the beer warms.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2007
Dark gold, thin white suds. Some sesame nuttiness, metal and coriander in the nose. Quite a pleasantly dry, metallic, faintly spicy Belgian wannabe.

bb (7915) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Slight sweet malt, hay, skunky hop, and spice aroma. Slightly sweet malt flavor with good hop qualities (citrus and spice). Medium body. A bit of breadiness lingers with hops. Refreshing. Not bad.
