Impressive white head and clear-as-a-bell golden color. Quite the pleasant nose -- lemon and ginger tea provide a zesty, peppery, spicy aroma. Some herbal but punchy hops are clear as well.

Lively and crisp, this has a great feel to it. Spicy and well-hopped, the malt has some fruit to it but is thin and fleeting in favor of a quick smack of lemon zest and (Saaz -- I sometimes miss these) hops. Not a spectacular beer, but this is well worth a quick look.

25oz corked bottle

golden color with a big white head that disipates very quickly, lots of bubbles, nothing to tasty about this beer. Has a very small Belgium kind of taste to it, I don't know, Duvel Very Lite. Couldn't pass up a $4 big bottle of beer

The beer poured crystal clear pale golden straw in the chalice with a white small bubble head which lasted to lace the glass.

The aroma was slight DMS with some Saaz hop aroma with some slightly grassy and fruity notes.

The flavor was slightly crisp and very slightly spicy. There was just a hint of sweetness on the palate that disappears in an instant. Not one hint at all of 6% alcohol which is surprizing from such a crisp beer.

The finish was dry and crisp. The body was medium light to medium.

750 ml cork and bail bottle. The beer is extremely crisp and dry and you could drink an absolute ton of it. The label calls it full bodied. Not the most interesting beer, but nothing to knock it on, in fact the appearance and drinkability are very high.

St. Droun de Sebourg is a nice, if unspectacular, ale from the Duyck brewery.

It poured nicely, with a fairly dense sustaining head; was straw-colored; had a malty nose, with just a hint of hops; started pleasant and clean on the palate; finished ho-hum.

Overall, not a bad beer from the 12 oz. bottle, but I've had a better version from the corked 25 oz. version.

750ml corked green bottle. label states "st. druon de sebourg abbey ale".

dull gold, some yeast suspended. stone white head, which lingers to a thin film. aroma of sweet malt, a bit of hop, and some lemon, as noted in other reviews.

fairly sweet with lemon notes. finishes a bit sticky and cloying. not particularly good, but hey it beats bud.

A golden colored ale (not a lager, according to the label) with a perfumy bit of lemon and large fluffy head which settles to a thin collar of foam. This beer has very nice mouthfeel at first, but as the head settles it seems to be a bit thin. Very pleasant citric notes with a hint of a buttery flavor. Very drinkable for its strength. This beer needs a little more complexity to be called an abbey ale, but it is a pleasant enough quaffer. Found quite cheap at $3.99 a four-pack.

This beer has a very lemony character. Smell is dominated by lemon and definitely hop hints at the backround. Taste is sweet and lemony. It's a pleasant to have beer with good carbonation and mouthfeel.
