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

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.

phaleslu (6411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Pete- thanks again, buddy. This wound up being the last beer we ever shared together. Pours a somewhat cloudy light gold color with a finger of white head. Notes of bready and doughy malts, straw, subtle spices and herbs, grass, pear, and light citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a doughy mouthfeel. Yeast-forward. Solid, if unremarkable, Belgian ale that I’ll always remember anyway.

hawthorne00 (2415) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2013
750 ml bottle, 9C. Very nice looking bottle says at a month past cellar release it will be well fresh and fruity, but if I wait 18 months it will be totally complex and aromatic - handy info if true. Gold with a white head. Doughy aroma with oranges, hay, toast, a little cheese, pears, pepper. Sweet hay, light sugar, pears, oranges, a little spice, doughy yeast. Some lingering herbal notes.A very yeasty blond. Shruggarific.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Malty, a general taste of cakes, toffee banoffee pie, niceness. This was a real shocker was not expecting this to be that good, kind of slutty
