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 from Total Wine in Folsom. Pours orange gold with a 4 finger creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma of banana ester and a little light malt. Med body, almost. Flavor is a little earthy with banana/yeast/spice. I think it almost deserves the appellation crisp. Certainly tasty.

Pours golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is malt and banana bread, notes of coriander and cloves. Very gentle carbonation on the palate, medium body. Taste is has a light sweetness that ends with a medium bitterness. Decent belgian ale. Well done, but nothing to write home about.

birra belga giallo intensa con una schiuma abbondante, ma poco persistente e un filo grossolana. al naso odori maltati forti e di frutta a pasta bianca. In bocca risaltano le note maltate che ben si bilanciano con un corpo importante. buona!

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Abbey beer since 2012 apparently made for the augustine monks of Ghent; a derivative of Augustijn, but refermented with Brettanomyces, which in this case makes a big difference. Yellowish white, stable head over a misty orange blond beer, fruity aroma of orange peel, pear, caramel, white grapes, grassy hops and indeed a vague leathery Brett hint. Fruity, rounded palate, caramelly malts, yeasty, again vague Brett leading to a dry, grassy finish. Much better than the mediocre Augustijn, in my opinion - and better than what I am used to from this brewery.
