COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Feuillen’s centuries old brewing traditions combine with Green Flash Brewing Company’s cutting edge brewing techniques to form our first collaborative brew: Bière De L’Amitié (Friendship Brew). A blond Belgian collaboration ale, brewed with St. Feuillen’s traditional yeast and spices. For a modern twist, we add rye malt, wheat malt, and American Amarillo hops. At the crossroads of collaboration, we dry-hopped the brew for more zest. It’s old-world Belgian Abbey-style meets new-world American craft brewing - and a friendship is formed.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, tangerines and lots of spice. Flavor is equally nice with lots of spice, some citrus and a very nice hop toward the end. Lots of soft carbonation and the 9.5% is now where to be found. This is a solid beer.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The spicy, bready aroma offers lots of lemon zest accompanied by clove and coriander. Light to medium-bodied with biting carbonation. The flavor and finish, although crisp and bready, is also moderately sweet, spicy and herbal. Lemon zest here as well. Generously bittered with grassy hops. Overall, very enjoyable. Much better than the sum of its parts.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle and Tap. Tap seemed too citrusy and spicy, whereas bottle was subtle and overall better- bottle rating. Huge pop of the cork, pours lively into the glass with a hazed golden body with a massive tigh pure shiny white head- looks like a hazed duvel. Good lace as well. Aroma is light grass, biscuity cracker, doughy, wheat, light perfume, citrus, light orange, lemongrass, spicy phenolics and seafoam. Flavor is grassy, big full pils malts, doughy wheat, toast, cookie dough, floral notes, spices, rose petal, orange, light tropical hints, and peppery hints in the end- airy from the high carbonation and mostly dry. Pretty good.

Poured from the bottle into a belgian-style goblet. The ale had a nice appearance and aroma. The taste is what you would expect from a american-belgian collaboration, very yeasty with a nice hoppy nose.

nuplastikk (4807) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Draft at The Maproom. Orange-tan with a big off-white head. Sweet, sugary aroma, some herbal yeasty nuances. A rich Belgian Golden Ale with a steady hop bitterness. Sweet, but not really sticky or heavy. Creamy, balanced finish. Well done, but rather subdued and simple.

marcus (6958) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours dirty pineapple blonde with a floral citrus aroma and a thin beige head. There is a very clean carbonated light malt flavor with lots of spice and yeast. Very refreshing.

Arayaga2 (1840) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Perfectly opaque lemon-drop color with huge soapy sudsy white head. Aroma has peary esters with some effervescent lemon. Taste is edgy... spicy, relatively acidic, almost lemony like a berliner mixed with a golden strong. The spice and the vigorous carbonation prick the tongue and make it hard to read at first. $12/750

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 7, 2010
On tap at O’Brien’s in San Diego. Hazy golden yellow with effervescent head. All the proper things a Belgian/Saison should be. Iam actually suprised to see it listed as a Belgian strong. Lots of lovely light spiciness, high citrus, and hay. Bright clean finish, with citrus/lemon and almost a white pepper effect. Lovely.
