COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Stefanus est une bière non pasteurisée à fermentation haute, qui est aussi refermentée en bouteille. Elle est brassée à partir de trois levures différentes, l’une étant la souche de levure originelle Jerumanus provenant de l’abbaye Sint Stefanus. Celle-ci, associée à notre processus unique, donne à notre bière sa saveur si particulière. See www.st-stefanus.be

SkillsFactory (150) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2015
Bottiglia da 75 cl. Imbottigliata ad Agosto 2014, maturata 10 mesi. Dorata, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca mediamente persistente. Aroma citrico e di arancia, lievito belga e frumento. Stesse caratteristiche in bocca con, in aggiunta, banana, caramello ed una gradevole nota alcolica; leggermente speziata. Tendenzialmente dolce ma abbastanza equilibrata. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

bastarda (190) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2015
informative label with bottling date and little flavour-table on it, I like that. aromas of dried bananas with a metallic edge to it, also a slight sulphuric note, then milky toffees and a bubblegum-clove track as well. Taste brings up a lot of soft, milky caramel again, with the bananas, phenols and some alcohol heat. Finishes with a clovelike bitterness tilting towards burnt plastic. Surely a nice beer but not my style.

MrBlueSky93 (479) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours yellow-orange single finger white head, slightly cloudy. Aroma of floral hops, orange, lemon, wheat. Taste of initial wheat, some banana, orange, lemon, then malts, caramel, toffee, little kick from the alcohol. Floral hops throughout, light spices too, toasted malts and a sugary sweetness. Nice.

katrinaez (537) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
OK for a Belgium. Deep golden color and a little hazy. The yeast is light and not as much flavor as expected. Bottle

750 mL bottle poured and shared. Thanks to Sandra for sharinh. Beautifully presented bottle, brew master autographed, and cellar release dated 8-2012. Pours a bright golden yellow color with a sizable foam head. Floral aroma with banana and belgian yeast. Flavor is rich banana, sugar sweet honey, and a floral note. Late yeast kick. Very tasty and unique. Great beer here.
