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

Bottle from Waitrose, about four months old. Light caramel colour, with a large white head. Medium body - not quite creamy. Aroma of Belgian yeast and pepper. Flavours of toffee malt, herbs and vanilla. Fruit content is relatively subdued. Dry finish.

EdKing (2139) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose in Balham. Hazy rich looking golden amber, off white big head, which dissipates to nothing. Nose is sweet, perfumey esters, light pale grain and toasty grain, baked brioche, lighter faint notes of honey. Taste is malty, sweet, perfumey esters, slight white wine vinous, pale grain. It’s very slightly muted and lacks the crispness flavour of something like Duvel.

Martin243 (894) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
330ml bottle at home, poured into a Hoegaarden glass. Hazy yellow, slim off white head. Vanilla and spice aroma, similar flavours with a hint of mandarin. Noticeably smooth mouthfeel, alcohol well hidden. One to savour

ska (212) - ITALY - SEP 23, 2014
33cl bottle, hazy golden color, medium creamy white head, yeast and coriander aroma with citrus and banana notes, sweet flavor, medium body, finish with yeast and spices, very nice (bella sorpresa, erano anni che non assaggiavo una buona belga nuova, magari esagero col voto per quello ma son soddisfatto)

Garrold (2613) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Clear, dark gold. Film of white head. Lots of bready, fruity, honey booziness. Taste is dry, with a light tartness. Soft, sugary palate, that feels a bit watery. Herby, dry finish. Pretty good. A while in the cellar would make a difference, I reckon.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Cool - nice little surprise here. Bready aroma, with nice fruit and spice as well. Clean and crisp flavor, yet complex. Probably one of the better Belgian "blondes" I’ve had. Yeasty. Doesn’t do anything different, just does it well."

LeFaune (38) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2014
Smoky aromas, wood tones but a bit dry, lacks complexity. Very lovely foam, consistent. Not bitter at all, slightly sour but not in a bad way. Very balanced. Doesn’t appear to be 8% - very treacherous.

330 ml bottle, rated 2014-09-09 @ Strasbourg
Orange hazy beer with white big head. Aroma has peppery Belgian yeast and herbal hops. Flavor is yeast with some sugary sweetness. Quite full palate with quite strong carbonation. Has a strong bitterness on the finish with aftertastes of yeast, pepper, fruits and alcohol. A quite simple Belgian blonde ale with quite strong bitterness. Maybe could use some aging? Adding the yeast in makes the bitterness softer.
