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.

750ml from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. Had high hopes for this one but found it to be a pretty bland strong Belgian pale, alas. Pale orange pour, with a lively body, so that’s all to the good I suppose. The nose and the flavors, however, where fairly dull, with mild spices, dry hops, and generic fruitiness coming on as the dominant qualities as the beer settles. Not bad by any stretch, just a little faceless.

On tap at Vine Street brewpub. Clear vibrant gold, with a yeasty stone fruits aroma and some sight wax. Taste is better. Nice clean malt tone, pale-ish with some yeasty fruit. Not too complex but has a nice balance with just the right amount of American hop bitterness on the finish.

Phenomenal! A fantastic ale of a cloudy hefe color and rich malt taste. A great beer and must for any fridge.

On tap at the Knick. Initial aroma is Campho-phenique and cat urine. Big phenols, esters here. Spicy herbal and woody notes. Funky. Dark black opaque with foamy thin light tan head. Medium-heavy body with fairly heavy carbonation. Starts with roasted and chocolate malt notes, bitter chocolate, and Brett-funky bitterness. Light hop notes with medium-heavy bitter finish. Carbonic tang with rubber phenol and Band-Aid. Interesting tastes here.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Opaque pour with an off-white head. Slight smoke. Vegemite. Rotted vegetables. Feels very Scottish. Had this once before but don’t recall it being so dark. Challenging but good.

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.
