COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editorís 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.

Pours a black color with off white foam head. Aroma of zest, vinegar, some mixed fruit, and slight roast. Has a light sweet zesty taste with slight bitters, a tarty vinegar bite and a chalky roastiness through the finish. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Very unique.

Sample at Martin City Brewing Co. Pours dark black. Aroma of lavender, root beer, dusty, floral. Flavor is plastic bandage. Must be the same yeast strain as Rayon Vert. My tastebuds and that yeast dislike one another.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows slight roast along with an unmistakable tang and some spice that I canít pick. Interesting. Same story with the flavours: wierd spices and some roasty malt along with the same tang again. Carbonation is spot on at least.

The aroma on this was really special. Smelled like tart fruits and really confused me into thunking I was about to drink a lambic or sour brew. Poured dark and allostnlooked porter like. The taste aroma were so different it was so cool. Taste was yeast and dry hops. Dark fruit and balancing malts. A strange yet fantastic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The one thing that stood out from the start about this lack beer was its healthy, billowy medium brown head. There were dark caverns inside the head... It was awesome. It settled to a light brown head with tons of patchy lacing that had dark brown edges. Wild. The aroma is very interestingly spiced. Something about it reminds me of Febreeze or a dentistís office. I know no other way to describe it. In the mouth itís, well, odd! It tastes very much of perfume and almost as if perfume/cologne or even Windex had accidentally gotten sprayed on my tongue. Still, interestingly, it doesnít taste too bad. After a while, the perfume-like flavor starts to taste very herbal and plant-like. Itís so strong and potent with this spice that it makes me make faces long after its been swallowed. If you pay enough attention you may be able to pull out woody, fruity notes. Quite a crazy beer... And to be honest, I think I liked St Feuillienís bottling better.
