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.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a slight hazed yellow- mostly clear with a relatively dense, bright white head that has decent retention and scant lacing. Aroma is potpourri, bitter orange peel, perfume oils, some spice, lemonade. Taste is very dry, some saison character, light candi sugar, soapy, perfumey. 9.5%abv is not noticeable.

Tap. Wow. Peculiar lemon zest, floral greenhouse plant mix, honey dew nose. Flavor is lemon gum drops, a bit of medicine, and toasted lemon soap. Interesting, unique beer. Weird. Aroma better than flavor. A little too much like a lemon candy for my liking, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

The aroma is minty, yeasty, spicy, malty, and generally herbal. The appearance is hazy gold with a huge head that fades. The taste is like the aroma exactly. The palate is very smooth from carbonation. Overall a really nice beer.

Sampled on tap at Bottleworks, pours golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grains, straw, pear, a little citrus and spice. Flavour of sour apples, pear, licorice, yeast and bready malt. Very solid.

Notes from Mar 2011: Well, I’m a little torn. It looked good, smelled good, tasted ok, but in the end, I just got sick of it after about 12oz. The head was enoooormous. It just tasted like a very average belgian pale, with some spice notes (biere de garde? but i think that was their intention), but very average as far as belgian pales go.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Chalky white-golden in color with a nice haze and decent white head. Lightly sweet, mostly spiced aroma. Spiced notes are most prominent with noticable, yet light hop charater.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - JAN 14, 2012
aroma is peppery citrus, sage, and yeast. it’s crisp and bright like a belgian triple but slightly artificial tasting. not much of a hop character, especially for a dry hop, but maybe that’s where some of the lemon is from. effervescent and light body, alcohol well hidden.

Rando7 (734) - Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2010
On tap to tulip. Faint yellow with thin head. Basically a decent tripel with hops. I’d rather they leave the hops out, I don’t like the balance. Many will like this combination but I didn’t care for it,
