COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Stepaja company, which specializes in foods for diabetics, decided to brew a special beer without sugar. "De Proefbrouwerij" developed 2 magic beers: the STEPA triple (pale, 8% alc.v/v) and the STEPA amber (dark, 6 % v/v) both having less than 0.3 % residual sugar. Special malts were selected to optimize taste and a controlled fermentation in the bottle was employed to reduce the sugar content to below 0.3 %

Pours clear blonde, Good white head. Smell is bit malty, some sweet note as well. Taste is bit bitter. Some stevia-like sweetness to it. It doesnt overpower, but it slowly builds up and conquers everything by the time the aftertaste kicks in. A hard beer to give a score to, since I really like the changing character it has, but at the other hand the aftertaste is just plain filthy....

Bottle @ Boombal, Gent. Golden amber colour, white foam. Fruity and very sweet nose of sugar (stevia?) and chemicals. Also notes of varnish. Very bad and almost undrinkable. Harsh bitter finish.

ForlornHope (179) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Golden in colour with a small white head. Little aroma, mostly of bready caramel. Taste is surprisingly sweet for a sugar free beer with a bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel, good carbonation, the finish is short and very bitter. Overall an unbalanced beer, not horrible but not great.

Deze tripel stelt een beetje teleur. Veel te weinig smaak aan dit bier om een goede tripel te zijn.

Swaroga (1659) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2014
Butelka 33cl. Piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym z odcieniami jasnego bursztynu. Piana jest średniej wielkości i jest całkiem trwała. Aromat przypomina pilsa ; ziarna, chleb, metal, delikatnie skórka limonki. W smaku piwo jest zaskakująco słodkie. Słodycz, która podchodzi delikatnie pod anyż, podobna do słodzików. Piwo ma ogólnie smak o nutach zielonej herbaty i trawy jęczmiennej. Gorzkość jest bardzo delikatna i zanika pod naciskiem dziwnego posmaku słodkości i anyżu. Ogólnie mówiąc to piwo to następny powód dlaczego nieciekawie być diabetykiem. Jestem z kolei przekonany, że można było lepiej to zrobić.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of grain. The flavor is surprisingly full of sugary notes. It tastes a lot like sweet tea. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not good.
