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

Bottled. Poured clear, lighter golden with a dense white head. The aroma picked up lots of banana and clovey esters over bready malt and a touch of honey.. strong peppery overtones as it warmed up.. smelled good. The flavor found apricot, banana, white pepper, and a kiss of ginger over mostly bready malt.. lightly tart fruits and a heavy dose of yeast (clove and banana mostly) came back for the finish along with sweeter malts. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. sufficiently dry.. good stuff.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pours cloudy medium amber with deep bright white head that retains well. The bottle is printed with the age, which in this case is just over six months. Aroma is weak wheat and toast. Taste is much richer - bags of wheat, some acidic tang and thin mouthfeel.

Golden color with white head. Aroma has a yeasty banana note and some brown sugar. Taste has also yeast notes like bubblegum, overripe fruits and some sugar sweetness. Body is medium with high carbonation. Overall it’s a well made Belgian ale but nothing really special.

Smithld1 (71) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle cellar release June 2013. Not my type of beer to be honest. I wanted to see if it aged better but it doesn’t. Pretty sour and yeasty. Pretty mellow finish but clovey aftertaste. Good head and lacing.

Golden colour with a frothy white head. Bready, spicy aroma and a taste of banana bread, oranges and cloves. Very full mouthfeel and a powerful alcohol hit at the end. A nice Belgian Blonde.

Flaske fra Waitrose, Finchley, delt med Steven: klar gylden med fint skum. Aroma og smak av mandarin, appelsinmarmelade og kandissukker. Varmende munn- og magefølelse, ganske slank for sin voltstyrke. Fint avstemt bitterhet holder sødmen på plass og gir mersmak.

Una buona ale, dorata, aroma di lievito con qualche nota citrica, al palato un leggero amaro, molto pulita.

Bottled@SBWF2015. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, some slight spiciness as well as some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is quite similar, but also has some mild yeast to it. A bit thin palate, even though it’s got quite much alcohol to it.

Head is smaller than expected, look is slightly hazy orangey hay colour. Aroma is yeasty wheat. Taste is spicy wheatish tart and crisp. Mouthfeel is prickly and bubbly. Very solid Belgian wheaty blonde, takes me back to Ghent and Brugge.

Flaska inköpt ombord Viking Line. Lätt citrusig doft med höigt och kryddigt inslag. Citrusfrisk inledning. Örter, check, lite pepprig, check. Fyllig och eldig munkänsla, check. Belgisk öl, jomenvisst.
