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 Pours clear blonde, ok yet fast fading white head . Smell is unintense, bit malty . Taste is surprisingly bitter , with the typical Vansteenberghe sweetness ( thnx to their ancient-way brewing methods ) good carbo , full mouthfeel . Bit of sugar at the end , but not too much at all . Nice, easy drinkable .

gad905 (183) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2015
750ml bottle, dated 4/2013, drank at home. Pours clear gold, fluffy white head that recedes fairly quick. Nose of sweet cereal, bubblegum, vanilla, banana, white pepper, some light tang to the esters too. Tastes moderate sweet light cereal malt, hay, bubblegum, vanilla, light herbal bitter, slight hint of almost bretty tang, very dry finish. Medium-light body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, well-carbonated but quite prickly, not as fine as I’d like. Lingering ghost of brett with some more vanilla bubblegum yeasty notes. Interesting, I think the age on this has worked out pretty well.
