Sinds 1295 wordt Augustijn gebrouwen volgens de eewenoude traditie van de paters Augustijnen. Dit authentieke kloosterbier met nagisting op fles, zal u door zijn volle smaak en fraaie kleur keer op keer weten te verrassen.
Contract brewed since 1978 by Van Steenberge for the Augustinian monastery at Stephen’s Church in Ghent using the original yeast culture. Sold outside of Belgium as St Stefanus, after the church, to differentiate it from beers that may be made by other Augustinian communities. The monastery receives money from each sale.
Ingredients: Pale, Pilsener and Munich malts; brewing sugar; Saaz, German Hallertau; additional bittering hops.
Partially filtered after primary fermentation, then cool matured for four weeks. Filtered and then reseeded with Brett and another yeast, and warm conditioned for two weeks. Bottled and stored for a minimum three months before distribution.

Melko kirkas, vain aavistuksen utuinen kohtalaisesti vaahtoava olut, jonka vaahto katoaa kuitenkin nopeasti miltei kokonaan. Tuoksu on vahvan hapokas, hiivainen ja hedelmäinen. Maku hedelmäinen ja hiivainen, sekä hieman pisteliään mausteinen. Aika runsashiilihappoinen, loppujen lopuksi kuitenkin melko tavanomainen belgiale. Tämä pullo oli 7% ja Ratebeerin mukaan ei Tripel vaan Belgityylinen vahva ale, joten päivitin tiedot.

Cristobal37 (819) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle labelled St Stefanus Blonde. Sweet belgian yeast not unlike a tripel but more grain. Loads of carbonation a very light beer in terms of flavor. Certainly not bad, but over before it starts. Watery finish. Quite unremarkable, but at the same time a solid foundation.

Danieln (12) - Wezemaal, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2016
Zeer smaakvol, vol maar niet zwaar. Een blonde zonder bitterheid. Fruitig en fijn. Heerlijk bier, zou er een tweede van op kunnen als ik het had liggen.

Palme (4187) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
0.33l bottle. This is a cloudy golden colored one with a nice medium sized white bubbly head on the top. It smells really bready, dough and a little yeast. Floral hints but a really mild nose. It’s somewhat high on the carbonation and in the mouth it has a nice oily texture. Tastes nice also with a sweet flavor dominating the flavor profile. Soft sugar, sweet melon. A little Belgian twist and a floral dry aftertaste. Nice non compiled one. 13.02.2016

beeebon (404) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle from Tesco. Pours a hazy orange gold, initially with small head which sadly goes away quite quickly. Aroma is banana, slightly herbal, brow sugar, malt and a note of hops. Taste is medium to strong sweet but quite nicely balanced with a dry bitterness. Not the best beer I have had of this style but certainly quite good. I would like to put a bottle back for a year and see how a bit of age changes it.

Bottle, 7% ABV. Pale orange color, almost clear liquid, white head. Light banana smell, higher carbonation. Light aroma of bananas. Taste is light hoppy bitter, bland, watery. Alcohol is hidden. Poor.
