COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Sinds 1295 wordt Augustijn gebrouwen volgens de eewenoude traditie van de paters Augustijnen. Dit authentieke kloosterbier met nagisting op fles, zal u door zijn volle smaak en fraaie kleur keer op keer weten te verrassen.
Contract brewed since 1978 by Van Steenberge for the Augustinian monastery at Stephens Church in Ghent using the original yeast culture. Sold outside of Belgium as St Stefanus, after the church, to differentiate it from beers that may be made by other Augustinian communities. The monastery receives money from each sale.
Ingredients: Pale, Pilsener and Munich malts; brewing sugar; Saaz, German Hallertau; additional bittering hops.
Partially filtered after primary fermentation, then cool matured for four weeks. Filtered and then reseeded with Brett and another yeast, and warm conditioned for two weeks. Bottled and stored for a minimum three months before distribution.

The_Osprey (7440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
330ml bottle at home in Richmond as St. Stefanus Biere dAbbaye Belge Anno 1295 Blonde, 7%, BB 2018. Many thanks to Secret Santa. Amber orange,translucent, highly sparkling with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is talc, rich moisturiser on skin, definite Dove moisturiser, some MDF wood and cork. Body is very frothy but not noticeably overcarbonated, tingly carbonation just turns the whole thing to froth straight away. Has quite a full, rounded mouthfeel. Taste is crisp with a carbonic bite, sweet toffee and candi sugar, some bready notes in the background, touch of booze drying it out in the finish, some lingering breathy hop. An accomplished commercial Belgian ale. No complaints from me - could definitely drink a few of these in an evening.

Cunningham (7390) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2016
Lovely tasty Belgian blonde!
Hazed deep golden color with a fine white head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a smooth carbonation level. Nice mellow sweetness and a bit oily texture. Wheat, banana, some spices, fruity and some Belgian yeast in the flavor.
[Bottle (as St Stefanus) at Cricketers in Ipswich, England]

Subliminal64 (138) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Bought as part of a Winter Sampler Pack. Smells like a belgian beer. Very sweet. Pours a medium gold colour with a slight haze to it. Head lasts to the end. Taste is mild sweetness and fruit with an ale undertone. Great carbonation. Next to no aftertaste. Overall I was very happy with this beer. Will buy again. MB. The Beer Bear-on.

Zilverenmaan (97) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2016
Flesje ong. 1 jaar oud. Aroma vol maar ietwat weeg. Smaak eveneens vol, enigszins fruitig (banaan?), alcohol goed onderdrukt. Geen hoppige bitterheid waargenomen.
