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

The aroma is metallic, belgian, ( i.e wild) yeast. Its a golden bier with a smallish white head. Its got a thicker medium bready sweetness but the spriziness is enough to fend off the thickness. In other words this beer starts heavy and finishes medium and refreshing if your in the mood for a meal. In other, other words, a good beer before dinner. Otherwise, well, do you have to ask?

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 24, 2013
This bottled brew bottled on 04/2012 from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was floral and musty. The bubbly mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a bubbly aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of sweet floral and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Not finding mucj to differentiate between this and other blonde belgians. Not bad, but not stand out.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, 4-2012 Cellar Release. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like orange and lemon peel, peppery spice, herbs, root beer, and some green apple. It tastes like cloves, peppery spice, orange and lemon peel, bubblegum, tangerines, pears, and a bit of licorice and apple. Very yeasty. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with a good amount of soft carbonation that makes this easy to drink. I liked this brew, certainly worth trying if you’ve never had it before. $11.99 a bottle.

PorterPounder (5207) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - cage corked 750 bottle. Dark golden pour, sticky snow white head with some light lacing. Aroma has some lemony accents, a bit of yeast. Flavor has some light lemony citrus notes, some sweet cake mix notes, a touch of yeast, some canned fruit cocktail juice in the finish. Just enough spritz in the mouthfeel to keep it interesting.

Cuso (3827) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle, many thanks Peter. Dark golden color with medium white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Sweet malty taste with pears, apples, honey. Almost no bitterness. Good.

jbruner (2012) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with dissipating white head and light lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast and sweet malts, taste follows with a dry floral, grassy flavor. Pretty solid, but not my cup of tea.

rbrazell (1458) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Clear dark golden with a milky white head. Sweet banana and bubblegum yeasts, whipped cream, grainy pale malts and citrus. Yeast forward with sweetness, grainy malts and a ginger ale like finish. Pretty thick and chewy for a blonde.
