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.

crossovert (10861) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
750 ml corked bottle. Brewed in Belgium. The cork exits with a boom. It is one of the best looking beers that I have seen. I poured it into my Duvel glass and it pretty much looks like Duvel. It is a clear gold with tons of carbonation bubbles racing form the etched D logo int eh bottom of the glass. The head is huge, foamy and white. It slowly recedes to some really nice lacing. The smell is unique. It is almost skunky at first.Then it becomes a spicy hoppy monster. It is definitely in the realm of Duvel Tripel hop, though spicier and not as hoppy imo. The flavor is pretty good. IT is sweeter and less hoppy than the smell. It has a big sweetness that carries some spicy yeast and some citrus with it. IT has some nice, subtle malt flavors under the yeast. The hops come in with a mild finishing bitterness and some added spiciness. It is a solid Belgian Strong Pale Ale for sure.

Sammy (10748) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2012
Enormous head. Spicy aroma. The taste is spicy and yeasty, which gives it a sweet spicy balance. Pepper, cardamon, rye, orange citrus,. A bit of funk. Most pleasant,nicely hopped, a little aging did not hurt it. Excellent drinkability, great with fish.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The spicy, bready aroma offers lots of lemon zest accompanied by clove and coriander. Light to medium-bodied with biting carbonation. The flavor and finish, although crisp and bready, is also moderately sweet, spicy and herbal. Lemon zest here as well. Generously bittered with grassy hops. Overall, very enjoyable. Much better than the sum of its parts.
