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

Aroma of honeyed pears with hints of spiciness. Flavour adds cardamon spice notes and may be a hint of pepper. Over all a very pleasant beer.

vulcanmeister (171) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Appearance: From a 750ml corked and bailed bottle (cellar release 8-2012), pours a magnificent long-lasting vigorous white frothy head. The beer presents as a cloudy amber-gold liquid mysterious with possibilities. Smell: The aroma is of honey, spice, and a sweet fruit. Taste: With frest fruit and an emphasis on bannanas, some zesty spice, and sweet honey. Slightly sweet and pleasant lingering yeasty finish. Mouthfeel: Creamy medium bodied with a vivacious bubbly carbonation. Overall: A lip-smacking and refreshing Belgian blonde ale. As my son says - "tastes like summer" !

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle sampled at Jax Beer Fest 2013. Golden pour with a small khaki head that lasts. The aroma is banana, estery, with phenolics and spice. The flavor is a tad sweeter upon entry, light candy sugar, more yeast esters, and lingering spice and dryness. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter golden with a dense white head. The aroma picked up lots of banana and clovey esters over bready malt and a touch of honey.. strong peppery overtones as it warmed up.. smelled good. The flavor found apricot, banana, white pepper, and a kiss of ginger over mostly bready malt.. lightly tart fruits and a heavy dose of yeast (clove and banana mostly) came back for the finish along with sweeter malts. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. sufficiently dry.. good stuff.

You know, every day I work hard. At night I spend restless time, those rich kids and their lazy money can’t hold a candle to mine. Oh well, them be the breaks.
