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.

PlutonowyMan (592) - POLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Kolor miedziano pomara?czowy, klarowny. Piana wysoka drobno p?cherzykowa z kilkoma wi?kszymi b?blami, d?ugotrwa?a, pozostawia sporo zdobie?, w kolorze ecru. Aromat owocowy, pomara?cze i brzoskwinie, dalej dro?d?e i siano. Smak troch? gorzej, wyszed? alkohol, p?niej do g?osu dochodz? owoce, ponownie siano i nuty dro?d?owe. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Alkohol niestety wychodzi, a nie ma go zbyt wiele. Uwagi: przyzwoity Blond, niestety alkohol psuje wszystko.

mice (868) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Melko kirkas, vain aavistuksen utuinen kohtalaisesti vaahtoava olut, jonka vaahto katoaa kuitenkin nopeasti miltei kokonaan. Tuoksu on vahvan hapokas, hiivainen ja hedelminen. Maku hedelminen ja hiivainen, sek hieman pistelin mausteinen. Aika runsashiilihappoinen, loppujen lopuksi kuitenkin melko tavanomainen belgiale. Tm pullo oli 7% ja Ratebeerin mukaan ei Tripel vaan Belgityylinen vahva ale, joten pivitin tiedot.

Cristobal37 (885) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle labelled St Stefanus Blonde. Sweet belgian yeast not unlike a tripel but more grain. Loads of carbonation a very light beer in terms of flavor. Certainly not bad, but over before it starts. Watery finish. Quite unremarkable, but at the same time a solid foundation.
