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.

Cybercat (3570) - Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Strong aroma has a malty core and firm floral and herbal notes, including a firm coriander tone. Pours a warm coffee brown with a thick, foamy and rather persistent tan head. Flavor has roast barley, herbal, floral and woody notes. The herbal component is on the strong side, perhaps a mite too strong. I like coriander flavoring in beer, but not too much! It leaves a woody, herbal, slightly malty finish. Fairly smooth texture has decent body and fizz. Let’s drink a toast to friendship between craft breweries!

Draft. Black body with a frothy beige head, lasting. Aroma of roasted grain, chocolate, herbal hops, mustiness, lacquer. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Interesting nose. Bone dry and tart, but so much so, it’s not refreshing. The roast bitterness lingers well into the finish along with notes of char.
