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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy bright golden with a huge pillowy white head. Has a unique piny hop and rye nose with some orange zest, lavender and thyme. Starts with pretty good fullness and lightly sweet biscuity malt with a touch of black pepper and malted rye before a slightly drier well-spiced finish. Definitely has some rye bread character and a saison profile. An enjoyable brew.

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 (6736) - 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.

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.

drowland (6569) - Georgia, USA - SEP 26, 2010
9/26/10. 750mL bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a huge thick but fizzy white head that cuts in half and lasts. Huge spicy aroma with phenols, yeast, rye, orange peel, skunk, pee, and more. Very sweet flavor of malt and orange peel with a yeasty kick. The flavor is a little light and hard to perceive because of the huge bubbly carbonation - almost too much there.
