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.

330 ml. Enormous creamy head lasts forever atop this cloudy orange-golden beer. Aroma is creamy honey, lemon, bread dough, and slight spicy grass. Initial flavor is peaches, cream, lemon, and honey. These flavors are all dried well by some spicy yeast, peppery wood notes, light white wine alcohol and very light earth-spice tastes that come to the fore later in the glass. Light-medium body is dry and mostly smooth.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2008
bottled. Very typical hazy golden tripel. Bubbly tongue covered in spicy sour fruit. A little simple. I had it w/ a cigar (KubaKuba) so this rating could be full of shit...

spicy and fruity a little sour in the nose. cloudy and a bit yeasty. This one is past it’s prime. Quite dry and definitely spicy, though. Meh. Will need to try again fresh. Stupid gift sets...

Bottle. Nice beer. one of the better non-trappist abbeys. Nice spicy, fruity flavor. Smells great. If it were a little less expensive wouldn’t mind having all the time. Highly recommended.

newbrewguy (145) - Mechanicsville, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle - Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color with a huge carbonated head with some mild lacing. Smells of fruity and sour spice. Mild fruity flavor with a hint of spice and sourness at the end.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Foam Rangers tasting. Orange pour with frothy head. Nose is fresh citrus (oranges, grapefruit, lemons) with funky spice. Nose is the same with some sweeter fruits to balance it a bit.

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Nov. 2007 - Pour was golden orange with a head that was just plain out of control. Aroma of funky yeast and horseblanket. The flavor was citrus and pear with a horsey funk. This is the 3rd in my mixed Belgian sixpack and each one had an out of control head, sour lambic-like flavoring and an overcarbonated mouthfeel. I’m beginning to feel I didn’t get such a bargain after all.

Quinten (1060) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2008
Orange colour, very very much foamy ever lasting head, full fruits like grapefruit, orange and a little banana, lots of spices and raisin, some alcohol aftertaste. Very nice one!
