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

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.

jookos (2132) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle. Yellow, light hazy, creamy head. Subtle belgy yeast, creamy pale malts, a hint of citrus, spicy esters (clove, a bit of banana). But quite nice, clean. Med light bodied. Soft, nice pale malty drink. Yeasty esters, but really nicely mixed. Feels .. fresh, refreshing even. Which is surprising given the high abv of this one. Dangerous drink, probably even more so than Duvel. Real easy, refreshing, but with a good kick of abv.

Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes, but also seen it in Eastbournes Tesco Extra. Pours out in a hazy golden co,our with smooth low body and medium head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and malt. Taste of flowers, sweet Belgian yeast, mild hops, cake, bread and sweet herbs. Yeasty finsih. Typical Belgian but not a bad one.

MichaelAwesome (4064) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose, East Cowes shared with McTapps. Simple belgian ale with a belgian yeast, bit of hops and butter. Slightly sweetish middle, yeasty dominance, bit of bread and cookies. Fine one with no special points to talk about. Well, the big carbo does not kill it - that is a plus.

330ml bottle from Tesco... something new to throw in with the big monthly shop. Pours clear golden amber, thick long-lasting white head. Aromas are Belgian yeast, hay, lemon. Taste is sweet, light lemon, too sweet though. Finish has a lingering spice, but not enough.
