Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is fruity with notes of yeast and spice. Flavor is medium sweet fruit, orange, coriander, yeast, with a warming alcoholic finish. Lots of fine carbonation that prickles the tongue somewhat unpleasantly.

Flaska köpt på Dranken geers. Fantastisk god belgare med lite för mycket alkohol om man ska säga något negativt!

Blonde dorée, belle carbo, collet epais et persistant. Aromes bien marqués, pain, citron, miel, et les levures belges Vive, ronde tout en gardant une certaine legerté, longue sur les cereales et legerement fruité

Purchased as part of a Winter Mixer Pack. Swells sweet, but not as much as other Belgians. Pours a cloudy gold. Head clears quickly, but lacing lasts to the end. Taste is sweet sugary, but not overpowering. Good amount of carbonation. No aftertaste. Overall I was happy with this brew. Easy drinking, and would never know it was 9%. MB The Beer Bear On

750ml corked bottle of St. Stefanus Grand Cru from Monoprix Department Store, Grasse, France. 750ml. Hazy golden with a very large white head. It has a powerful warming lemon, peach and apricot flavour with spices on the warming boozy finish. A little too much alcohol is evident.
