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.

Superb, complex aroma - citrus and spice. The flavor, however, seems to be dominated by a huge licorice flavor - not really up my alley.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2011
750 ml. Aroma- Spicy, sweet fruit from belgian phenols and little tartness. Appearance-Cloudy light orange. Large persistant white head. Taste- The head itself very happy and grassy. More of the fruit from the aroma some spiciness a little bit of that american hop character. Sharp bitterness and moderatley high dryness. Not bad. I think I prefer the breweries on their own but a noble effort none-the-less.

HopBackDoc (473) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Pours a golden color with small white head. Aroma of yeast, spice and fruit. Flavor was light, crispy, floral, fruity, hoppy and well carbonated. A nice balance of Belgian influence mixed with American hops and malts. Easy drinking and packs a punch.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap. Poured a slightly hazy gold with an off-white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had a good amount of grain and yeast with a bit of spice, citrus hops and light fruit. Flavor was similar with more of a light fruit note coming through and the hops bringing a bit of bitterness to round out the beer.

Sampled as a bonus at the mead tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 7/29/10. Pours clear gold with a huge white meringue head. Grassy nose with herbal notes and grassy hops. Sweet malt flavor followed by herbs (I’m mostly getting lemongrass) and a nice bitter finish.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle. pours straw-like yellow, hazed, white, rocky and lacy head. nose of saison yeast and straw, but very bright and clean...do i smell the rye? maybe. maybe some coriander too..no wait...definitely some coriander. nose was refined...flavors a little less so...the sweetness is a bit overly present...and distracting..making the spices seem overdone, the alcohol doesnt play in to that scenario very well either...making it all a bit cumbersome. There’s some lemony touches throughout...but the sweetness and alcohol make this beer a bit overdone and not so great. Not a big fan of this...its a hot, sweet somewhat mess....but the nose was nice.

750 ml bottle. The cork was at first difficult to disgorge, but then shot out with a bit of the beer over-spilling the bottle. Pours a very hazy pale straw gold with a massive white head that lasted through mid-glass and coated the glass with each sip. There are dozens of streams of tiny champagne-like bubbles quickly rising from the base of the glass. The aroma is light and I am guessing being hidden by the large head. There is some mild malt along with a few whiffs of sugary sweetness and spice. The flavor is malt, mild Belgian yeast, light spice and just a touch of sugar. A bit of black pepper and lemon at the finish along with some noticeable alcohol warmth. Ok as it is, but I was expecting more.
