With roots dating back to 1295, St. Stefanus Blonde is the original abbey beer contracted to the Van Steenberge Brewery. St. Stefanus Blond pours a light golden color with a good head that stays, lacing the glass as you drink it. Aroma is nice and yeasty, notes of bubblegum, barnyard, sweet hay, mild cheese, sweet earth, light floral tones. Big, bready mouthfeel, sparkling carbonation, fizzy yeast. Flavor is big, spicy, and bready with notes of cereal, lemon, and tart grains. The flavor has the same with a very nice bitterness to balance. Very well done.
