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.

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours a lightly hazed golden with a white head. Great yeasty aroma with abundant bubble gum and cloves. Again the yeast stands out very nicely in the flavor, with bubble gum leading cloves, and definitely mixing with some citrusy hops. A very tasty beer with a great yeast profile.

I like rye, so I was pleased to taste it peeking out from thid very complex collboration. Hops are strong, The Belgian spices are present. The mix of malts is fun and then another wave of hops takes you home to a clean crisp, spicy finish.

Pint on tap. Really really good. Bright sunshine color, cloudy, laces well, little head, bubbly. Aroma is citrus, peaches, nectarines. Taste is more sweet and citrus, with floral notes and herbs. Medium-light body. What a good blend of American and Belgian tradition.

Bottle from BevMo somewhere in San Diego. Backlogged rating. Pop bottletop. Pours a hazy light gold color. Excellent head and appearance. Aroma is pear, clove and coriander. Wheaty malt flavor with dry bitterness, along with peppery ginger spice. Light on the palate. Very pleasant and easy drinking.

BiddleBrau (938) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Hazy light gold with light white head. Fruity, orange, corriander and a bit musty in the nose. Citrus spicy (a hint of bublegum?) flavor, dry with subdued malt presence. Nothing overpowering but plenty of flavor. No way I’d think this had 9.5% alcohol. Palate is fairly full as well, I guess based on the malt needed to get that alcohol. A very nice surprise.

750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($12.99). Opens with quite a pop! Pours a murky straw yellow with big fluffy white head composed of rather large bubbles which reduces to a constant layer of foam. Aroma of fresh zesty citrus, yeast, biscuity malts, spice, and some notable American hop qualities. Flavor has a strong spicy element (apparently both from rye malt as well as the actual spices used). Flavor also includes more zesty citrus (lemon stands out and also orange peel) and other hoppy notes. Dry finish with nice carbonation. I like the very fresh and hoppy qualities of this brew. It’s a big beer in terms of ABV, but the saison-y characteristics somehow make this very appropriate for a summer day. Very nice. (28, 360)

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Light hazy yellow with a huge, fluffy white head. Light notes of bread, citrus, spices, clove, bubblegum and subtle hops in the aroma. Bright gentle cirtrus flavor is balanced by a soft yeastiness, bread, and light spice. Nice well balanced summery belgian. Medium body with lots of carbonation.
