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.

Concealer (770) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, near black with a brown, foamy head that lasts; lacing down the sides as well. Aromas of fruit, roasted malt, and a light spice. Flavor is roasted malt, light fruit and yeast with lingering dry finish. Medium Bodied.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bouteille de 12oz. offerte par Patrick. Merci. Une robe brune noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez très épicé avec de la réglisse, de l’anis, de la muscade, du girofle et d’autres épices de tout acabit. On reconnait la levure St-Feuillien. La bouche est de grains grillés, d’épices. Une amertume marquée complète la dégustation de cette bière un peu mince.

floydian1 (963) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 12, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. Black pour, large cream-white head with good lace. Far more like a spiced dark ale rather than a Saison with star anise aromas and traces of coffee on top of malty base. Quite light bodied and easy drinking.

TrappistenOli (320) - Bern, SWITZERLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Schwar, hellbeige schaumkrone, leicht säuerlich im aroma, gewisse malzigkeit und säure im geschmack, schlaffe rezenz, fader abgang ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (3167) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Une robe noire et une mousse superbement interprétée. Une petite dentelle accrochée. Au nez, des parfums singuliers et cohésifs de gingembre, d’anis, d’essence de menthe verte, de lavande, de réglisse et de terre chocolatée. Un goût hors du commun, plein de chlorophylle et d’épices, avec une présence tardive des malts rôtis et un trait presque sauvage. En bouche, un corps léger traversée par des bulles très fines. En finale, une amertume de torréfaction, une fraîcheur des aromates et un soupçon citronné. Originale, c’est peu dire. Exceptionnelle, je ne pense pas.

CapFlu (4521) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
(22oz bomber) Purchased at Viti Liquor and Lager in Vancouver. Pours jet black with a highly lofty beige head. Nose of hard English candy. Almost medicinal - interesting citrus and wit base gets blasted by cotton candy, caramel and toffee. Not terribly palatable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep black color with a small brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with some earthy notes. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt with light roastiness and some light funky notes. Body is medium with light prickly carbonation.
