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.

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 (4708) - 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 (6788) - 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 (1813) - 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.

Sampled on tap at Bottleworks, pours golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grains, straw, pear, a little citrus and spice. Flavour of sour apples, pear, licorice, yeast and bready malt. Very solid.

Draught at Waldo Pizza. Light, hazy straw-yellow color with a white head. Earthy aroma with some sweetness, yeast and banana. Similar flavor but added a little spiciness; also a creamy, silky mouthfeel. Very nice.
