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.

Fukito (1027) - Santiago, CHILE - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle, July 2007. Pours a clear, shinny, golden color with a huge, bubbly white head with a vivid, effervescent carbonatation. Aroma is citric/ acid, lemony with some spicyness. In some ways it has a vinegary aroma reminescent of geuzes. Taste is fruity, citric, a touch of spicyness and a slight alcoholic warmth. Mouthfeel is medium to light with a slight and short watery ending. A promising but a bit lackustre alcoholic belgian golden ale.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle @ Peculier Pub, NYC. Pours a golden orange with dead yeast on the top. Aroma is of citrus, coriander, and cloves, with slight malt and yeast characteristics. The taste is a delicate and intricate balance of the same. The mouthfeel is smooth and complex, and a great compliment to a very good beer.

Wow. Great aroma. Honey, wildflowers, a bit of coriander. Flavor was a bit sweet and very complex, I think that the comparison with a sparkling wine is a valid one. I get esters and candied fruits, a bit of graham cracker. Palate is not dry but good. Very good mouthfeel. A winner. Brought to Panama from Alaska. Excellent beer.

janubio (761) - SPAIN - JUN 23, 2007
33 cl. bottle. Pours an enormous head that remains for a very long while. Pale golden clour, a bit hazy. Smell of flowers, clove, coriander and a bit of licorice. Pungent. Somehow it reminds of a dry champagne. Pungent and citrusy flavor, in mouth keeps reminding me a bit to a dry champagne or xerry. Spicy, citrus, coriander. Yeasty.

Bottle. Poured cloudy orange with fat white head and good lacing. Nose of flowers, spices, fruits and hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Flavor is slightly bitter and so is the finish. Overall a nice brew and easy to drink.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Pours a dull, yellow-copper color with lots of effervescence and a head that is white, full, and fluffy; mostly lasting head with tight lacing that dissipates. Nose is fragrant with floral, dry herbs, spicy (pepper), citrusy (lemon), lots of dusty yeast, light esters (banana), and a bit of wheat maybe. Flavor is similar; lots of citrus with oranges and lemons, light spicing, dusty yeast, faint esters, and still the noticeable wheat character. Palate is more than medium, creamy, lively, and a little silky. Bitterness is moderate and balances the citrus notes, and spicy warmth is felt only late in the flavor progression. Finish is average with oranges, lemon peel, decent bitterness, and a touch of yeast and pepper. Decent tripel with nice citrus notes and nice balancing spicy, warm, yeasty notes. The wheat note is odd but pleasant. The complexity in the flavor is limited which really hurts the overall presence of the beer.
