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 750, cloudy light gold, with a medium white head. Mild fruity nose, ripe-banana like. Slightly sweet taste, spicy with a touch of heat. this is pretty good stuff, zesty is a good word to describe it.

750ml bottle $13. Nice orange color, decent head and a hoppy aroma. Citrus wafts up as well as a distinct spiciness. The flavor was more hops, citrus, and spices and well done I might say. I could not help but think this was distinctly influenced by Green Flash as it reminded me a bot of their tripel and le freak. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-12-2010 00:41:55

lusikka (6558) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Draught @ The Trappist, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of really strong spices, nutmeg and rosebud, not much else. Flavour of strong spices, rosebud, yeast, lemon zest, grass and weak maltiness. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a warming spicy finish. Way too spicy as it runs over pretty much everything.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy yellow/orange with a big, thick, white head. Aroma of candi sugar, earthy yeast, coriander and citrus. Flavor is sweet sugary malt balanced out by zesty spice and citrus, very light alcohol presence. Medium body with active carbonation. Really nice beer, all the flavors come together nicely and it’s very drinkable.

drfabulous (4193) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Draught at Freshcraft. Lemon yeasty light and good carbonation. For a strong ale, it has the yeasty taste of wit.

gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Draught at Falling Rock on October 12, 2012
As "Green Flash Friendship Brew".
Black color, brown head. Sweet, mineral, brett scent. Brett, bitter taste. Dry finish, spritzy mouthfeel, high bitterness. Hints of licorice.
Most others around me found huge amounts of licorice, as where I felt mainly brett, I might have been interpreting the characters differently.

Draft. Deep black. No idea what style they want this to be. Pretty port wrist in my opinion. Easy drinking. Pretty good
