Van Steenberge Augustijn Blond 4pc Bundle

Fruity, Malt Hoppiness

The Augusti¬≠jn Blond beer is a result of a spe¬≠cial¬≠ized part¬≠ner¬≠ship that began in the 1980s between the Augus¬≠tin¬≠ian monks of Ghent, Bel¬≠gium and Jozef Van Steen¬≠berge of the Van Steen¬≠berge Brew¬≠ery. They‚Äôve been using the monastery‚Äôs own yeast strain for 25 years now. 

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The secret of the Augusti¬≠jn Blond beer is in the his¬≠toric yeast strain, which has been used in the monastery since the late 13th cen¬≠tu¬≠ry. The yeast gives this blonde beer a mild, smooth, but rich fla¬≠vor and a grassy, pep¬≠pery scent. This beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly amber-col¬≠ored beer is full-bod¬≠ied with a fruity hop¬≠pi¬≠ness that fin¬≠ish¬≠es with a dry, spiced malti¬≠ness and a touch of vanilla.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Bel¬≠gian blondes, with their yeasty com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty and malt fla¬≠vor, goes well with the earth¬≠i¬≠er, nut¬≠ti¬≠er cheeses. From semi-hard to soft and washed-rind, choose cheeses that are tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly enhanced by hon¬≠ey. We rec¬≠om¬≠mend pour¬≠ing a glass of Augusti¬≠jn Blond with a deca¬≠dent¬≠ly creamy Brie de Meaux AOC. The malty fla¬≠vor of this beer makes it a prime part¬≠ner for light¬≠ly sea¬≠soned seafood, pas¬≠ta, and poul¬≠try dish¬≠es. For the best aro¬≠mat¬≠ic expe¬≠ri¬≠ence, drink this bear out of a tulip or bech¬≠er glass.

THE EXPER­TISE OFMONASTERY

The Augus¬≠tin¬≠ian monks of the Ghent Monastery have been brew¬≠ing the orig¬≠i¬≠nal Augusti¬≠jn since 1295. By the end of the 1980s, to con¬≠tin¬≠ue their fine tra¬≠di¬≠tion, they sought part¬≠ner¬≠ship with Jozef Van Steen¬≠berge, then the suc¬≠ces¬≠sor to the Van Steen¬≠berg¬≠er Brew¬≠ery. The brew¬≠ery added a sec¬≠ond fer¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion to the orig¬≠i¬≠nal process, using the same strain of yeast that the monks have cul¬≠ti¬≠vat¬≠ed for centuries.

Storage Instructions

Store beer bot¬≠tles upright to pre¬≠vent yeast rings from appear¬≠ing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approx¬≠i¬≠mate¬≠ly 13¬įC. Don‚Äôt allow beer to be caught in bright light for long peri¬≠ods of time to pre¬≠vent it from attain¬≠ing a ‚Äč‚Äúskunky‚ÄĚ taste.
