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.

DocLock (10725) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2010
750 cc from Capone’s. Pours clear canary with a champagne-level of carbonation and a huge white clingy head. Nose is pale malty, white winey fruit, yeasty spice, hops. Tastes malty, champagny, very carbonated, with hopcitrus, pinot grigio white winey notes, spicy yeasty notes, and a complex palate. Gets a tad cloying late, but that’s a minor beef.

Draught at Falling Rock on October 12, 2012
As "Green Flash Friendship Brew".
Black color, brown head. Sweet, mineral, brett scent. Brett, bitter taste. Dry finish, spritzy mouthfeel, high bitterness. Hints of licorice.
Most others around me found huge amounts of licorice, as where I felt mainly brett, I might have been interpreting the characters differently.

Tasted from a 750 mL bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a hazy, yellow-orange appearance. Yeasty, strong Belgian, and alcoholic aroma. Creamy, Belgian strong flavor with a semi-strong Belgian flavor. Yeasty and somewhat thick flavor.

Tap. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with a nice white head. Yeast and spice on the nose. Medium palate. Nice flavor profile of yeast, pepper, nectarine, and hops. Great job on this brew!

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a cloudy golden color with a big bubbly white head. The aroma has yeast, spritzy citrus, grass and some herbal hops. The flavor had a big amarillo hop bite up front, yeast, wheat grass, citrus, light spicy notes with a dry finish. This does carry some heat.

marcus (10333) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours dirty pineapple blonde with a floral citrus aroma and a thin beige head. There is a very clean carbonated light malt flavor with lots of spice and yeast. Very refreshing.

KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled. Cloudy golden with a high, fine head. Nice citrus hop nose, oranges and peaches. Light spice, clean biscuity malt. Full, sweet malt flavor, quite spicy, big citrus hops. Nicely bitter finish. A bit on the sweet side, but very crisp and clean finish with great hops.

sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2010
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.
