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.

MrBlueSky93 (418) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours yellow-orange single finger white head, slightly cloudy. Aroma of floral hops, orange, lemon, wheat. Taste of initial wheat, some banana, orange, lemon, then malts, caramel, toffee, little kick from the alcohol. Floral hops throughout, light spices too, toasted malts and a sugary sweetness. Nice.

OK for a Belgium. Deep golden color and a little hazy. The yeast is light and not as much flavor as expected. Bottle

Pours a bright golden yellow color with a sizable foam head. Floral aroma with banana and belgian yeast. Flavor is rich banana, sugar sweet honey, and a floral note. Late yeast kick. Very tasty and unique. Great beer here.

Alpha10 (415) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
2015/04/23 - Pours a clear, orange-gold colour with a thin, fizzy white head that lingers. Aroma is bread, cereal, mild caramel and faint citrus. Taste is cereal, mild candied sugar, mild citrus and some yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium with slightly sharp carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. I usually like this style, but I was not a huge fan of this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
