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.

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso, courtesy of Greg - thank you sir! Very pale yellow, solid lacing. Aroma of freshly cut grass. Taste is very strong hops, but not too bitter. Good balance and complexity.

brokensail (12222) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy pale yellow color with a huge white head. S: The nose is of sweet light fruits such as apples and pears, grass, and light malty sweetness. There is a touch of metal in there too, for some reason, along with subtle yeast esters providing some spice. T: Sweet and bready malts with plenty of green apples, sweet pears, and floral honey-like notes. There are some nice grassy hop notes as well. M: The body is on the light end of medium with a very lively carbonation. D: Like pretty much everything else Green Flash does, this was a winner. Very nice and easy to drink (especially for such a high ABV beer).

bhensonb (11908) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 18, 2010
750 c&c from South Bay Drug. Cork ejected with a bang. Pours dishwater gold with a 4 finger frothy/foamy off-white head. Smells like a tripel; kandi, yeast/spice. Medium body; frothy carb. There’s a strong spice/herb/hop flavor that is dominant. Or maybe that’s rye. It’s incredibly floral/herbal, and it’s even bitter. So lots of complex flavor. It’s strongly flavored. Finishes like a dry hopped tripel. Excellent.

Tmoney99 (11470) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Corked bottle. Poured a cloudy deep amber with an average rocky off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit, hops and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bittersweet and yeast flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Exceeded my expectations.
