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.

750ml bottle from Market Square Liquors. Yellow pour with a huge white head that leaves soapy stick. Aroma of mint, lemon, light malts, yeast and pine. Tastes are more of the same with spike of carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter, pepper and mint. Interesting.

Pours a hazy yellow, nose is of belgian yeast esters, fruity, with a nice fennel kick. Taste is spicy, clean belgian pils malt, and again a good fennel bite.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Slight lemon notes in a very soft tripel aroma, from the yeast. The appearance is very light with a bit of lemon haze and a small white head. The flavor is so light and smooth that you don’t tase any alcohol at all for that ABV. The light notes of lemon come on gradually and linger lightly for a bit, it goes down very easily.

Bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Fruit, sweet candy sugar, yeast, spice, light citrus, and bread. Good beer, however I was not blown away by it.

Point the cork away from anything you care about. Not a gusher, just a forceful pop. Pours cloudy yellow with a big white head, good retention and good lace. Smells yeasty with some banana and bubblegum. Tastes about the same. Sweet and yeasty with some fruit and cereal malts. Medium body, lightly coating, fizzyish carbonation.

Hazy light gold with light white head. Fruity, orange, corriander and a bit musty in the nose. Citrus spicy (a hint of bublegum?) flavor, dry with subdued malt presence. Nothing overpowering but plenty of flavor. No way I’d think this had 9.5% alcohol. Palate is fairly full as well, I guess based on the malt needed to get that alcohol. A very nice surprise.

750ml bottle from bv4lss. Pours a slightly hazy brass-yellow color with a big fluffy whit head that has good retention and lacing. The aroma is mild with soft herbs, Belgian yeast, whit pepper and sweet malts. Thee flavor has a big Belgian tripel character with white fruits, thyme, grapefruit, hops and some lightly funky sour grapes. The palate is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is medium in duration and dry. Overall: A very enjoyable quaff if you are in the mood for something Belgian.
