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.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 23, 2007
Interesting muddy orange coloration. Dense, consistent and very persistent white cream . Fruity aroma, something citric and spices. In the palate, it loses a little cause of the alcohol, however without being aggressive. But nothing to lament. The flavor folloies the aroma, mainly the spices. A very good beer.............................................. Interessante coloração alaranjada turva. Creme alvo muito denso, consistente e persistente. Aroma frutado, algo cítrico e especiarias. No paladar, perde um pouco em função do álcool que se sobressai ao conjunto, porém sem ser agressivo. Mas nada a lamentar. O sabor acompanha razoavelmente o aroma, sobressaindo principalmente as especiarias. Cerveja muito boa.

Hamirubi (566) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2015 75cl bottle at home. Hazy orange brown coloured brew with a nice thick white foam on top. The amber color gives the glass a nice apprearance. The aromas are filled with malts, earth and almost old genever. The taste is really typical for the Augustijn-series. Grains, dust, some fruity flavours and dirt notes, with a spiritful ending. The mouth is somehow unpleasant, yet the overall taste is not really that bad. Full bodied for a modest 7.5 alcohol percentage.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is of grassy tones, lemon, spices, and yeast. Flavor is of citrus, lemon, spices, and some grassy tones with a slight alcohol finish. A decent brew.

Good, but I’ve the feeling that I’ve had this basic recipe several times before already. Standard solid Belgian Strong Ale of the cloudy-golden-color, big-head variety.

"Ooh, this is nice!" Poured a hazy orange in color. Thick white head rested on top. Kind of a color similar to a tabby cat. Nose is very candied sugar. Also picked out a bit of heat from the alcohol. Flavor is a nice balance between tart citrus, slightly bittering hops, and candied sugar and malts. Orange citrus tones are very strong and come out more as the beer adjusts to room temperature. Slighty, springy hops give just enough bittering to keep the sugars from taking over. Medium to full mouthfeel that turns a tad sticky as the beer warms. I had to force myself to take this beer slow and enjoy it.
