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.

Draught at Mugs split thy skull. Pours hazy yellow with lots of head and lace. Aroma is super nice well rounded soft wheat citrus and light spices. Taste adds a grittier spice after a juicy blend of peach, unripe orange, and a squeeze of lemon. Feel is soft, lively, and a little astringent. love this. Could drink all summer...or any day.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Almost didn’t notice this bottle since I expected Green Flash would have been bottling it. Created a monstrous formation of soapy foam while the liquid was a pale blondish color that had dense carbonation bubbles rising to the top. As for the nose, a spicy and soapy aroma dominates and has some scents in here that I just wouldn’t know what they were. Almost like a pine or jasmine smell with a distant aroma of lemon grass and root beer. The flavor was intensely spicy with an authentic strain of Belgian yeast, but not surprising since Green Flash has been known to brew up some tasty Belgian strong ales and as for St. Feuillien, making high quality ales is their thing. Has an undertone taste of lemon zest, coriander, and light touch of juniper berries. This is a heavy hitting combination of brewers and hit the spot on a sizzling summer day and after a week of no drinking.

Poured from a bomber into a St. Feuillien goblet a golden brew with a thick off white head Aroma of funk tells me we got Belgium yeast. Malty floral & citrus follows. Taste is classic abbey ale but with some citrus thrown into the barnyard. Totally a brew I would enjoy with a heavy meal. Overall I would say this a well above average collaboration brew & would easily buy again to share with others over dinner.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with nice citrusy floral hops , California meets Belgium, nice and silky. In mouth, a great Belgian IPA with fruity esters, floral hops, citrus pulp, coriander, nice, complex and refreshing. Sampler at Battle of the Belgians at Jimmys 43 (as Belgian coast ipa).
