COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is a deep brown color with ruby red hues and long lasting, fluffy tan head. If my Mother was still with us she could pin down those vibrant "secret spices" in the description. My guess: Clove, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and coriander. Also a tart fruit character like tangerine. Medium body. But the flavor has additional spices noted. Perhaps turmeric along with the other listed. Mildly bitter end but mainly spicy

DutchMark (153) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2014
Surprisingly fresh. The deep dark colour had me prepared for a heavy sweet taste. Instead an interesting complex flavor that is not heavy nor sweet. Fizzy carbonation and flavors of burned malts, bitter hops and fruits and herbs. With a dry finish. Nice!

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
Completly black colour with a good foamy tan head. Aroma of oak, pepper, dough and some acidity. Also a lot of herbs in there, maybe some salvie and rosemarin. Smell like a really interresting beer. Flavour really strong and somewhat astrigent. Wood, acidity, pepper, dough, citrus, dark fruits, red berries, licorice, and some hints of smoke. Really a lot of flavours here, maybe a bit too much. Quite sour! A lot of carbonation, which makes a quite soapy moutfeel. Big body. A overwhelming beer with a lot of charachter, bud maybe a bit too much.

Im Glas ist ein sehr sehr dunkles Bier mit einer wunderbaren bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch dominiert durch Gewürze, sonst kann ich leider keine Aromen feststellen. Geschmack sehr würzig mit Röstmalzaromen. Wird im weiterem Verlauf auch etwas scharf.

not to bad super interesting smells of herby slight bitter/ tartness almost like jager but not as boozy or pungent and has a nice mild sweetness like soda overall pretty tasty but the price just doesn’t do it justice

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Bomber. Pours very dark brown, pillowy beige head. Nose of coriander, yeast spice, chocolate malt. Flavour is perfume, yeast spice, a bit of roastiness. Dry finish. I love the palate of this one.

Ferris (4253) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle - Roast malts, spices, grass, lemon zest and yeast. Almost like root-beer. Jet black with a big brown head. Medicinal and lemon zest with a touch of bitterness. Not good.
