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

dj (526) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A cloudy golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of floral hops, banana and a little spice. Flavour has spicy hops, wheat and citrus. High carbonation. Some sweet honey and yeast notes in the finish. Too sweet and way over-carbonated for my liking.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Huge offwhite lasting head. Clear deep yellow body with a powerful centre fountain of carbonation. Funky dried fruit aroma with apple notes. Dry dried fruit and metal taste with honey notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish fizzy mouthfeel. Dry resiny dried fruit aftertaste with metallic toffee and spice notes. Nice, drinkable, interesting. Maybe a bit too dry and too carbonated. Fills out a bit and goes hazy when dregs are added, which much improves it. Honey becomes much more prominent then. (0.33l bottle, Beer House, Paddington Station, London.)

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2014
[Bottle] Murky orange color with a huge pillow of dense head on top. Fruity nose is tempered with Belgian yeast phenols. Taste is of dough, residual sugars, straw, banana, clove, spicy pepper and vanilla. Very smooth and creamy. Lingering sweet and yeasty flavors. Pretty well balanced flavor profile despite the sweet nature of this beer.

StevieT (741) - AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2014
From a bottle, aged about 9 months. Very fruity flavour, thick lasting head, smooth and very sessionable.

jacekziegler (23) - Plymouth, Devon, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Mega gushing! Big white head vanishing like on coke drink. No lacing. Hardly any aroma, hardly any taste. Big disappointment.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 33 cl from Monoprix Belleville - Paris (F). Golden blonde with a nice white foam sticking to the glass. Aromas of yeast, fruity, toffy, malt and spices. The mouth is sweet but tingly, very perfumed with yeast, a fruity superb and complex. Delicious and greedy beer, perfect by eating.

joe19612 (1934) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a thin white head, orange aroma and light malt, taste is mellow and not to bitter with a dry finish.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours golden amber unclear with a big creamy white head. Aroma is subtle, sweet and yeasty with a bit of apple. Flavor brings a ton of apple on the palate, and Belgian yeast dominating.

Rotaldinho (103) - Paris, FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Beautiful golden dress with slightly amber highlights. The nose has nice notes of malt, coriander and a floral touch. On the palate, fine and soft attack gives way gradually to interesting flavors malt. The final is both spicy and bitter.

zenigata90 (6) - ITALY - MAR 28, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 75 bottle. Schiuma abbastanza persistente, colore ambrato pulito. Corpo medio, letteralmente amara. Nel complesso piacevole.
