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

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 29, 2013
May 2012 Cellar Release. Piloem to piwo po 17 miesiacach od produkcji i lezakowalo u mnie sporo czasu w odpowiednich warunkach. Powiem ze po tylu miesiacach piwo powinno miec pelen aromat slodowy i tak wlasnie jest. Co prawda tylko lekkie zmetnienie ale pieni sie mocno i smakuje wybornie. Jasne choc bym powiedzial bursztynowe, pasowalo by raczej Amber Belgian Ale do tegopiw. Slodowosc jest tu gora nut chmielowych wlasciwie brak. Po kilku chwilach po przelknieciu jest delikatna wytrawnosc ale to piwo jest sprytnie zbudowane, slodowe i kompletne. Ponoc wypite jako swieze ma wiecej cytrusowego harakteru. Polecam lezakowanie przynajmniej rok czasu

Pour is a hazy blond with a large white head. Aroma is yeasty and sweet. Flavor is sweet but slightly fruity with some bubblegum and bone dry malt. Finish has some melon fruitiness with a big filling carbonation. Decent Belgian beer mine says bottled 7-2012

Bottled. A bad Belgian. Glue and bubblegum yeast aroma. Tastes so lacking in body its anorexic.
