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

jamestulloch (1320) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing marks. Aroma of maple syrup, spice and yeast. Flavour of wood, honey, corn flakes and warm spices. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Average fizz. The sweetness quickly becomes cloying.

Fin (7349) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle not sure where from possibly Terre de Boissons, Calais but equally could be from Barry? 7th March 2014 Pours gold filmy white head, bit sweet none too exciting I’m afraid. Far too safe and unexciting, its fine but I was hoping for more. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Beertobealive (228) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2014
Large foamy white head with light lilies flavors. Clear regular orange body. Taste displays smoky malts, a bit strange for a light beer. Some sweetness also but short in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Philym (976) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Appearance: Hazy light amber with 2 finger thick white head. Aroma: Corn, syrup, candied orange peel, biscuit and pepper. Taste: Medium sweet and sourness with low bitter. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light body, average/prickly carbonation, dry abrupt sweet, sour syrup, peppery biscuit, fruity finish. Comments: Ok and glass lace. It has the aroma and taste I associate with rice adjuncts.

Gachupines (877) - USA - FEB 28, 2014

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Doughy, sugary, and apple core infused aromas. Blond hazy looks, moderate carbonation, 2012 bottling seems intact. Hollow sweetness, honey maybe, not really tart or sour although it’s getting there. Mellow body, really dries out towards the finish. Nice mid weight blonde.

matstrange (62) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
August 2012 release bottle. The head when poured is insanely huge and creamy. Typically Belgian flavour but smoother than other abbey beers. Packs a punch at 7% but is oh so worth it!

spacecube (804) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
330ml bottle, pours golden brown with a small bubbly white head Caramel malt with coriander spice and with a good balance. Bottle advises this is brewed with 3 different yeasts but I can’t detect much unusual yeast flavour. A decent belgian blonde beer, well crafted and of good quality.

Banksiz (22) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Released August 2012. Mallty-clove-apple nose. Slightly sweet, light bitterness, a pleasant touch of sourness. Overall, a pleasant Belgian blonde. Perhaps beginning to decline at 18 months’ aging.
