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.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, - OCT 12, 2012
Pours light amber with big, white head. Subdued malt aroma. Somewhat nondescript flavour. Not a very convincing blonde.
Earlier Rating: 10/10/2012 Total Score: 2.7
Pours light amber with small, uneven head. Alcoholic aroma, not particularly inviting. Flavour is mostly alcohol, a bit of malt bit mouthfeel is on the thin side. Not a very convincing beer.

Hopverdju (951) - BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2017
Blond bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: licht moutig, brood, wat gistkarakter. Smaak: licht moutzoetig, licht bitter. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig en romig. Afdronk: licht bitter. Dit is een typische (old school) Belgische sterkere blonde.

Cloudy yellow with moderate, slow-dissipating head. Aroma is mostly of alcohol. Warm thick rich flavor and mouthfeel, yeasty and with a hint of banana. Comforting.
