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.

Bottle, gave a loud pop! when the cork was removed, has a clear medium gold pour with some orange and yellow colors, made a huge white fluffy, creamy head five fingers high that stood in the glass, there was tons of effervescence in this beer, bubbles everywhere, and lots of sticky, bubbly lacing on the glass as I drank, there were aromas of light bread and pale malt, yeast, soft, mild fruit fragrances of Orange, Lemon and Pear, a hint of Banana and faint floral scents, with flavors of bready malt, light fruit – Pear and Lemon with citrus, the finish is drying and has pepper with a touch of gentle herbs at the end, there is some alcohol warming on the palate, and it does not grow as the beer warms which is a good thing, mouth feel is light and creamy, a nice Belgian Strong Golden ale.

Point the cork away from anything you care about. Not a gusher, just a forceful pop. Pours cloudy yellow with a big white head, good retention and good lace. Smells yeasty with some banana and bubblegum. Tastes about the same. Sweet and yeasty with some fruit and cereal malts. Medium body, lightly coating, fizzyish carbonation.

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

Opaque pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Big floral aroma with funky yeast notes. Dry spicy and floral flavor. Some citrus. A bit funky and chalky.

On tap at O’Brien’s in San Diego. Hazy golden yellow with effervescent head. All the proper things a Belgian/Saison should be. Iam actually suprised to see it listed as a Belgian strong. Lots of lovely light spiciness, high citrus, and hay. Bright clean finish, with citrus/lemon and almost a white pepper effect. Lovely.

Cloudy yellow, generous head. Sweet malt and Belgian yeast on the nose. Bitter/sweet tug of war on the tongue. Orange, vanilla,soft grains(oats?) and alcohol through the middle. Alcohol on the way out predominates, backed by numerous hops.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Let the beer warm up gentlemen. Wow! Killer aroma. Aroma and flavor really bloom as it warms. Very elegant. Flowery perfume with spicy hops. Golden Champagne like. Amazing. Really pleases the Siason hophead in me. Marriage made in heaven. I hope they do more beers together. Strong flavors and aromas from both brewers. Radical!

Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: The cork popped like a cannon. Hazy peach color with a billowing bright head. Aroma is floral, spice and citrus. Flavor starts lightly sweet and fruity with a peppery bite followed by zesty lemon and corriander and a bubbly dry finish. Medium body has lively carbonation.
