Van Steenberge Augustijn Blond 4pc Bundle

Fruity, Malt Hoppiness

The Augustijn Blond beer is a result of a specialized partnership that began in the 1980s between the Augustinian monks of Ghent, Belgium and Jozef Van Steenberge of the Van Steenberge Brewery. They’ve been using the monastery’s own yeast strain for 25 years now.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The secret of the Augustijn Blond beer is in the historic yeast strain, which has been used in the monastery since the late 13th century. The yeast gives this blonde beer a mild, smooth, but rich flavor and a grassy, peppery scent. This beautifully amber-colored beer is full-bodied with a fruity hoppiness that finishes with a dry, spiced maltiness and a touch of vanilla.

PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS

Belgian blondes, with their yeasty complexity and malt flavor, goes well with the earthier, nuttier cheeses. From semi-hard to soft and washed-rind, choose cheeses that are traditionally enhanced by honey. We recommend pouring a glass of Augustijn Blond with a decadently creamy Brie de Meaux AOC. The malty flavor of this beer makes it a prime partner for lightly seasoned seafood, pasta, and poultry dishes. For the best aromatic experience, drink this bear out of a tulip or becher glass.

THE EXPERTISE OF A MONASTERY

The Augustinian monks of the Ghent Monastery have been brewing the original Augustijn since 1295. By the end of the 1980s, to continue their fine tradition, they sought partnership with Jozef Van Steenberge, then the successor to the Van Steenberger Brewery. The brewery added a second fermentation to the original process, using the same strain of yeast that the monks have cultivated for centuries.

Store beer bottles upright to prevent yeast rings from appearing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approximately 13°C. Don’t allow beer to be caught in bright light for long periods of time to prevent it from attaining a “skunky” taste.
