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.

Pours a bright yellow golden color with a nice three finger head that just sits and waits like a well trained dog ! Sticky with proteins too.... Aromas are big and fruity; tropical, apple, citrus...as well as a touch of rustic yeast, straw and a bit of herbal spice. On the palate its a lot of the same but the hop presence really shines mid palate with fresh dose of earthy bitterness to cut into the Belgian candied flavors and fruity roundness of the beer. Really nice.

Pretty good brew. Self popping cork! With a good, solid bang, too!! Poured with a small to medium sized, sudsy, off white head that lasts a little and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy light amber. Aroma is lots of citrus fruit, malt, yeast. Taste is very similar with lots of lingering sweetness. Body is very good and it has champagne like carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. Easy drinking beer.

750 ml bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, pear, citrus, light earthiness and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, pear, pineapple and citrus with a crisp dry lingering citrus finish.

Poured from the bottle into a belgian-style goblet. The ale had a nice appearance and aroma. The taste is what you would expect from a american-belgian collaboration, very yeasty with a nice hoppy nose.

Wow, what is this amazing madness? Nothing short of de-lish. Pours a beautiful, cloudy light yellow-gold with a HUGE pillow of white head. Nice sticky lacing throughout. Aroma is belgian yeast and candi sugar with grapefuit, honey and a floral touch. Flavor is an a-mah-zing combo of Belgian/American goodness. Fruity, sweet grapefruit hop flavor, followed by yeasty fullness, some Belsgian spice with a drier hop finish. Keeps me guessing, and I’m guessing I want more. Yum!

very active moon crater head placed on top of a hazy golden hue. Gobs of carbonation visible. clean malty nose, hint of light spice. Taste adds biscuit, apple, and pear to round it out. alchohol is well hidden. WOW!!! light to medium body. This is a quite a tasty treat. Rated via BeerBuddy

Poured from 750, cloudy light gold, with a medium white head. Mild fruity nose, ripe-banana like. Slightly sweet taste, spicy with a touch of heat. this is pretty good stuff, zesty is a good word to describe it.

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.

Poured from a bomber into a St. Feuillien goblet a golden brew with a thick off white head Aroma of funk tells me we got Belgium yeast. Malty floral & citrus follows. Taste is classic abbey ale but with some citrus thrown into the barnyard. Totally a brew I would enjoy with a heavy meal. Overall I would say this a well above average collaboration brew & would easily buy again to share with others over dinner.
