COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 Could be seen as a warm weather beer. Aroma is slightly yeasty, a little tart. Hazy orange yellow color. Sharp carbonation, lightly yeasty.. complex flavor. Frothy white head. Noticeable lacing. Notes of tart grapefruit in the flavor. Really enjoyed this one.. Very light beer.

From a Belgian beer sampler six-pack--Poured a hazy amber copper body with a huge froth, lumpy white head. Nose of candied sugar and sweet fruity mslts. Some of the best Belgian beer flavors in a very complex delightful beer.

Bottle. Clear pours eventually gets sekmi hazy. Big bubbled head. Fruity aroma has touches of cough syrup, apricot. Flavor is hard to pin down. Candi, popcorn, slightly grainy. A bit astringent and a wierd but somehow pleasant alcohol flavor and aroma. A bit too bitter. Unique but not special.

[Bottle from Risky-Finn.] Hmm, I sholud like this beer according to my profile, but something went wrong. Unbalanced notes of perfume and sour grapes. Must be rerated one day.

Nice thick creamy white head that lingers over an orangy yellow haze. Sapy lacing. Nose is a bit boosy, come citrus and hops. Strong carbonation boozy burn on the tongue. Flavours of grapefruit cinamon and other spices. Spurisingly clean finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 28, 2007
(on bottle, labeld as "666")A very gentle and vanilla-ish ale. Hazy yellow and steady white head. The aroma is quite soft; esters and grains. A bit too perky carbonation, but as the sample took room temperature, it helped on the hard sugar contents in the finish. Do not have the herb notes, nor the dryness I prefer in a tripel.
