St. Stefanus by Brouwerij Van Steenberge N.V.
Belgian Blonde Ale
7.00 % ABV

Originating from Sint Stefanus, the Augustunian order in Ghent, this high fermented ale is brewed with 3 different yeasts and refermented in the bottle. Each bottle is then matured for a minimum of 3 months before cellar release and will continue maturing until opened, allowing the distinctive flavours to develop.

(Served in a tulip glass)
cellar release 4/2012

A- This beer pours a thick 3/4 full glass of off-white head even with a very gentle pour. Eventually the clear orange body comes up with strands of racing microbubbles.

S- A mineral and club soda aroma has a nice full yeasty aroma with some fruity characteristics.

T- The dry slightly fruity yeast reminds me of Orval yeast with a nice soft green note in the finish and a dry banana ester coming through as the beer opens. There is a light white bread flavor underneath and some hints of more yeast character as it opens but it stays subtle even though it has some nice complexity.

M- The light mouthfeel has a more full tight fizz but no alcohol noticed. And there is a nice crisp texture in the finish.

O- This beer is very sessionable with a nice flavor and depth to the yeast profile with some soft support from the malt. I'm not sure aging it would help any, as the bottle suggest, but I could be wrong.

Served In: Tulip
