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

AshtonMcCobb (3493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle at the White Lady. Appearance - golden with steady bubbles and a lovely fluffy head. Nose - lemon pith and herbs. Creamy. Getting a cheesecake note. Taste - candied lemon peel. Again creamy and again cheesecake. Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - complex and interesting.

teddybeer (2495) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2015
Golden color with an off-white with good retention and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of bread, some yeasty, mild malty. Flavor is slightly sweet, yeasty notes, alcohol very good hidden with a good maltiness. Mild sweetness in the final with medium duration and some fruity hints.

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En stiltypisk medelkraftig relativt komplex blond. Frisk, fruktigt estrig, kryddig med mycket jästkaraktär och relativt torr trots en liten honungssötma. Citrus, nejlikor, koriander, jäst och en lite kryddig beska. Riktigt trevlig.

jamesie1857 (1548) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
330ml bottle from Tesco - Probably a bit of a hostile rater to this one, paid £3 a bottle from the same people who could give you a big bottle of Leffe for the same, so expected so much more from this. Bit of a gusher to start, clear yellow, massive white head. Nose had a bit of wheat in it, a touch of clove there too. Taste is relatively fine, it has a certain rustic quality, but other than that - unspectacular. Gimme a Duvel over this any day.

Leafs93 (1818) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Pours orange gold with a medium white head. Aroma is earthy, citrus, floral, bread and yeast. Taste is sweet with some tartness, mostly sweet though. Medium bodied, smooth with good carbonation for a crisp finish.

Deu (865) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle. Poured a light golden colour, with a very large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, straw, bread and tinned fruit. Soft fruit flavours, with some dough and light hop bitterness. Finish was balanced peal, esters, caramel and cereal.

hotstuff (4391) - Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Rated on 4-24-2013 (Corked & caged bottle - Cellar release 4-2012) The appearance of this beer is a large extremely fizzy white head that mostly diminished, transparent yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is yeasty, lightly malty, sweet, fruity, hint of sourness, and tart. The flavor is sweet, mildly spicy, fruity, yeasty, and candied sugar. The mouthfeel is spritzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer, but the flavor was just okay for the style. A bit of a let down since this is one of my favorite styles.
