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

Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours amber with a large fading head. Nose shows doughy Belgian yeast, soft spicy phenols, caramel and candi notes. More doughy notes as flavours along with caramel and more candi sugar characters. A little cloying. Carbonation seems a tad excessive.

Hazy blond appearance. Aroma is very sweet, fructose, strawberries, etc. Flavour is like a fruity jam but also yeasty. Very lively carbonation.

Cellar release date 07/2012. Consumed 01/22/14. Beautiful cloudy orange-yellow color. Finger of puffy head. It is absolutely opaque. So murky, unbelievable. Aroma of apple skins, peach, Belgian funk. Champagne and white wine grapes. Mildly horsey but it’s a welcome counterbalance. Autumn leaves. Flavor is funk, champagne, green apples. The funk is understated, and the sweetness hits the back of the tongue. There is a perfumey flavor. Feel is try: not quite ashy but papery. It is a lovely beer. Not sure if it should be slightly better after aging for 18 months, but it is a lovely beer nonetheless.

Chalsk (1053) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared on New Years Eve. Pours a cloudy yellow color with white foam head. Aroma of fruit, banana, caramel, and earthiness. Sweet Belgian yeast banana taste with a nice carbonation level for balance and creamy subtle caramel hints on the finish. Perfect blonde.
