Brewery: BROUWERIJ VAN STEENBERGE
The Augustinian Monks have been brewing Augustijn since 1295 at their Monastery in Ghent. In the Middle Ages, many priests and monks brewed and marketed their own beer. As the water was often contaminated, it was safer to drink beer because the water was boiled during the brewing process.
Historic yeast strains give the beer its mild, smooth, but very rich flavor. The Van Steenberge brewery uses these strains as the basis of Augustijn and many of its other beers. If you drink Augustijn when it is young, you get to enjoy its fruity, hoppy flavor. If you let the monastery beer mature, you are transported back to taste the rich history in each glass. Fruity beer with respect for tradition.
Augustijn Blonde is flavorful full-bodied, fruity, hoppy amber blonde. It is mild and malty with a slight touch of vanilla and a finish that is slightly bitter and smooth.
Best served cold.
