COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: The 6.5% abv European version is listed under St Feuillien

Our second collaboration with Brasserie St-Feuillien, Friendship Brew, is a Black Saison that blends European and American hops, Belgian yeast and a cache of secret spices. The aroma and flavors are enticing, with delicate fruitiness, subtle spice and rounded roast malt characteristics. Bottle conditioning provides lively carbonation and rich beer foam for a luscious body and a lean, dry finish.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dark black with a burgundy hue. Aroma is fruity but also possesses a peppery/soapy element. Flavour was like a dark peppery barnyard yeast. Pretty dry and medium body finish. Interesting and challenging combination, but not as good as their other stuff.

gringo332 (563) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours quite dark with a nice tanned head. Smells of yeast, fruity esters, brett and malts. Moderate sweet, nice touch of brett and a fruity character from the yeasts. Moderate bitter finish. A very nice saison; of this black kind i don’t know much, but i know i liked this one

Maris (1108) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2013
From a 355ml bottle on 24/3/2013. Pours close to balck with a medium head. Has a curious aroma which is dominated by licorice with a touch of spice. The flavour is curious as well, with bitter roasty notes, some sweet dark fruit, more licorice, and a lingering spicy finish. An unusual and quite interesting brew without quite hitting the bullseye.

Ughsmash (7281) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a dense, creamy, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up a whole lot of juniper and spruce with toasted chocolate malts supporting.. bright and interesting. The flavor found slightly sour juiniper plus white pepper and cloves throughout.. black, roasty malts supported.. finished with a big spicy yeast impression and residual roast. Medium-bodied, dry, and kind of sour on the palate.. this was OK, but didn’t entirely work.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue and a small, creamy beige head. Odd aroma, licorice and white pepper, somewhat vperfumy too. Medium body, some roast, a little cardboard and a rather bitter finish. A strange hybrid - the idea behind this was probably better than the actual result. But a good looking beer it is.... 200313

rlgk (12521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black beer with a rich lasting brown head. Spicy yeast aroma, coriander, soap notes, floral, roasted more, hay, some clove. Spicy flavor, hay, coriander, yeasty, juniperberries, pine, some soap. A bit too spicy to really suit me.

drsordr (1393) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Draft pour dark brown to black. Nose of ivory soap, lilac, and pepper. Tastes like sour pepper. Not sure if this was a bad sample or just not my kind of brew
