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.

thanks Tony @ OTH for the share. pours cloudy golden, white head. aroma,f ruity, clove, spices, light bread, definitely has the St Feuillien signature along with a more hopped up American style. flavors, champagne yeast? mild/thick malt presence, fizzy carbonation with ample citrus. Belgian yeast with light hops adding for a nice bitter palate. Spices, cloves?, dry hopping is on the light side, rye adds some spiciness.

lusikka (6603) - 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.

douglas88 (6477) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle shared by Eric. Pours a golden almost yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma is heavily spicy, peppery saison. A rich Belgian yeast and malt profile, some heat, spicy and dry. Interesting.

Ernest (6419) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon peel, pepper, wintergreen, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Nicely aromatic and pleasantly balanced (dry, not syrupy sweet). Nice tangy yeast. It doesn’t excite me, but for a big spiced Belgian golden, it’s quite enjoyable. Less alcohol would have been preferable.

after4ever (6314) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
750, corked and baled. Pours a brilliant pale gold with a towering, surging, frothy platinum blonde head. Nice spicy nose--showing some dark roasting spices and some orange peel. Maybe cardamom. Fizzy crisp light body. Bright lemon and orange along with bitey spices on the mid-palate, all on top of a toasty malt base. Crisp finish. Very refreshing and pleasant, especially given the alcohol...which does not show at all.
