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.

KyotoLefty (6704) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled. Cloudy golden with a high, fine head. Nice citrus hop nose, oranges and peaches. Light spice, clean biscuity malt. Full, sweet malt flavor, quite spicy, big citrus hops. Nicely bitter finish. A bit on the sweet side, but very crisp and clean finish with great hops.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 10/21/13

Aroma: The nose is fairly yeasty, lots of spice and funk, some light citrus zest
Appearance: Pours a bright, clear golden color with a thick, frothy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is heavy spicy/yeasty, as the nose would indicate, the funk it more subtle, but it is still present, there’s some citrus flavors, and it finishes with a not large, but noticeable hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a really nice one. The mix of spice, funk, citrus zest, and hops works very nicely to make an interesting and tasty offering. I enjoyed this one more than I did the Friendship Brew Black Saison. Tasty.

Aroma: Bread, light fruit
Appearance: Light hay with a slight white head

One2remeber (150) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle, says 06/06/14. Thin, big bubbly white head, dissipates quickly. Vibrant, cloudy dark orange body, yellow hue. Minty, spicy malt, bubblegum, strawberry candy fruitiness. Hint of paint volatiles. A lot going on. Minty up front, spicy from malts more than yeast, not-so-smooth rye taste. Big warming booze feel at the back without booze taste. Numbs the mouth with lingering notes of pink bubblegum, slightly dry/powdery. Lively carbonation. Hops mute at this point. Solid Tripel with tons of complexity. Flavors are so soft which is confusing with the numbing alcohol affect.
