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.

One2remeber (145) - 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.

3/16/2011: St. Feuillien and Green Flash Brewing Co. Bier De L’Amitie Collaboration Ale (Brewed with Spices)... Aroma: Citrus peel, fruity, floral, lightly sour/vinegar; rubbing alcohol. Appearance: Cloudy, opaque marigold yellow color; dense, frothy off-white head that lasts; fast carbonation. Flavor: Yeasty and spicy; fruity sweetness; starts like a Wheat Ale/Hefe, the has a dry middle and becomes very much like a Tripel; the citrusy Amarillo hops come through with a mild, well-balanced bitterness; sharp, alcohol and white pepper finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; well-carbonationed; slightly sticky on the lips. Overall: Really nice brew; complex and quite enjoyable.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Sample at the Aficionado’s "Hidden Gems" beer tasting on 05/24/2013: Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, grainy malt and hops. Medium to full body with flavors of sweet spices, bready malt, yeast and hops. The finish is nutmeg and yeast with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 13, 2013
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was orange peel and musty. The mild citrus mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium fruity aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of bitter sassafras mild citrus yeast mildly vinous mild spice coriander hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Citrus nose. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a mostly lasting white head. The taste is mildly tart - citrus, grain, with hints of a white wine. Typical Saison with a dry crisp finish. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, an excellent example PDA Saisonz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
