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

MarkSachon (635) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from Baruni’s in Baden --- just sitting there collecting dust and dated 4/2012 for cellar release date. This is an excellent offering and comes in on the sweet side without the expected dryness of some blonde varietals. Highly recommended and worth the $7.00 investment.

TH28 (150) - - JUN 21, 2014
330ml bottle with 4/2012 bottling date. Appearance is hazy golden with an orange hue and minimal foam cap. Aroma is very fruity, mainly apricot, apple, and melon, with a touch of alcohol. Taste is a sweet, slightly musty malt with a lot of apricot, tangerine, apple. Mouthfeel is light with a high carbonation and touch of alcohol warmth. Finishes very dry and balanced.

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle I got popped like New Year’s champagne, but didn’t fizz too much. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a fairly thick and frothy pale buff head. Flavor has fruity notes of pear and banana, plus hints of malt and butterscotch and a snip of hops. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, average but acceptable. A truly refreshing beer to take the edge off the heat of the day.

puboflyons (2228) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Fromm the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle that reads Cellar Release 7-2012. Cloudy medium amber pour with a big but soft cream colored head. The aroma are full of toasted and roasted malts, biscuit, spice, pepper, yeast, and other typical Belgian notes. Hops downplayed. Full bodied. The taste begins with the roasted malt character but swiftly evolves to a peppery more spicy finale. Ends great. Highly enjoyable.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Cellar release 8-2012. Pours to a nice brassy amber body with a creamy starch white head and lots of moderately rapid carbonation. A bit of spotty lacing atop the glowing body. An aroma of yeast and caramel with bananas foster. Creamy too. The flavor is creamy caramelized bananas foster with light clove and clean yeasts. Balanced throughout. The palate is creamy and medium bodied, but finishes very clean. A nice beer all around. Very easy drinking.

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
750 bottle. Pours an orange amber in color. Tropical fruit and citrus aroma. More tropical fruit flavor and a dry clean citrus note followed by a hint of spice on the palate. Overall, a nice warm weather brew.

Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Clear golden color, decent white head. Aroma has light fruity yeastyness and alcohol. Light to medium-bodied. Semi-sweet fruityness, light citrus and alcohol. Clean mouthfeel and refreshing beer. Same time quite simple.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2014
Cellar Release 11-2013. BB 30/08/15. Poured a hazy amber colour with a one-finger white frothy head that retained OK but diminished quickly to a collar. Lacing good. Carbonation medium to high with small to medium bubbles giving a tingle to the tongue. Aroma of sweet sugars, malts, possibly a hint of fruit and maybe bread/dough. Taste of sweetish malt, dry yeast and faint spice; alcohol well hidden. Light body (a bit thin). Smooth, light, yeasty and faintly spicy. OK.

demmbonz (592) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Shared 750ml to chalices. Cloudy wheat color with a huge impossible to pour head. Aroma of sweet belgian candy sugar and yeast. Taste is classic belgian blonde. Head refuses to leave. Lacing for days. Lovely.
