look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - blackish brown with a huge brown, foamy, dense head that has great retention

S - anise, roasted malts, sage

T - anise, citrus, sage, bitter finish, some other spices that I can't put my finger on

M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated

This doesn't resemble a traditional saison, but it's unique and tasty. I'm a huge fan of the herbal notes. I wouldn't have expected these flavors to have all worked together so well. This isn't my favorite "saison", but I give it bonus points for uniqueness. It's definitely worth a try especially if you're a fan of herbs in beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick texture. There was an inch and a half of foamy, off white, long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, yeast, and some spices.

T: A very interesting flavor for this beer: Lots of hops - way more than I expected considering the style - but also a good amount of yeast, light spices, and a floral quality. Didn't have the funk you expect in a saison. Certainly not your typical saison flavor, but still very tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a super dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An unusual beer, but well worth checking out. Drinkable.

A new style for me, so I am not sure how it "should" taste. However, I liked it. A very complex brews. Pours a clear, deep brown looking black in the glass. Thick and enormous coffee head settled to a quarter-inch rocky cover. Heavy lacing. Nose is sharply herbal with sage, mint tea, rose, chamomile. Taste is initially lightly sweet, then delicately sour with umami notes. The finish is bitter and floral. Avg carbonation. Texture is slick. Finish is bitter and long. Overall, it was a fascinating beer. Complex and interesting. Dark and wild with an interesting spiciness and rough finish. Not at all forgettable, bur for the right reasons.

Serving type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark tan/black with a monster , foamy 3 inch head, tons of lacing.

Smell - Loads of floral fruits, cherry, grape, plum, rasin. Spices, belgium yeast, Chocolate, fig, smokey malts.

Taste - Lots of spices, floral/grassy notes. Bitter fruits, some malts and yeasts. Lot of cherry and grape flavor. Plum and rasin add the bold, dark fruty flavors. No real alcohol to speak of. A little chocolate, cocoa and coffee comes at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Its medium thickness along with all the spices coats mouth. Tounge gets the spices, hops and yeasts. Palate gets more spices, hops, along with the roasty malts. The aftertaste is bitter, farmhouse sweet and funky.

Overall - This is decent, has a nice mix of malt and saison flavors. Easy enough to drink and enjoy. I guess i was expecting more, the fruity flavors are a little weak though. Its worth a drink, just not something that floored me.

Friendship Brew pours a very dark mahogany brown color. It’s nearly opaque. A few burgundy highlights are noted at the outermost edges. A nice tan head covers it. It stands a couple of fingers tall and sticks around for quite a while. It never fully dissipates. Lacing was sticky and moderate as it trailed down the glass. For a Saison – very interesting.

The nose is pretty good. It features a few dark malt notes out of the gate. Cocoa and dark chocolate are most notable. Coffee is noted. That’s surprising and seems a bit out of place. It smells very earthy and grainy. There’s even a strong piney scent. It has a very strong mix of floral notes and spices. I can’t even begin to identify them. Suffice it to say there are many. Alcohol is blended pretty and isn’t all that noticeable.

The flavor’s alright. It’s far from great. Chocolate malts are definitely noted. Cocoa and bittersweet dark chocolate flavors are the base. Roasted coffee is also noted. So far, it’s definitely not your typical Saison. Earthy and grainy notes are prevalent throughout. It does have a rather strong piney flavor to it. I’m not crazy about it. There are some strong spicy notes throughout. Ginger is probably the strongest. Alcohol isn’t noticeable. Given its strength, that’s not too surprising. Finishes malty, spicy, and piney. Eh. For a Saison, it’s pretty average.

Friendship Brew has a medium body. Carbonation seems pretty light and soft. It’s smooth and goes down relatively easy. If the flavor were a little better, this would be much more drinkable.

This collaboration between Green Flash Brewing Co. and St. Feuillien is alright, but doesn’t quite live up to the expectations I had for it. Its biggest problem is the flavor seems convoluted, too spicy, and far too piney. It’s probably worth a try, but I’d suggest sticking with a single bottle.

Pours an ebony color with a pillowy tan head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of big floral notes with a bit of roasted notes.

Tastes of the floral notes upfront with an earthy undertone. Floral notes leads off with also some spruce or pine notes. Gives a very perfume like feel. Roasted notes come with cocoa and coffee as well as a bit of roasted bitterness. A bit of herbal notes also come through and combine with the floral notes to have a bit of a tea like feel. Not much spice, but a bit of pepper comes through on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this was not quite what I was expecting, but it is still pretty good.

this is a miss to me. it pours really dark brown color, a little sludgy, with a tall and lasting tan head. the nose is odd, cocoa powder and cinnamon, which i dont think really go together well at all, and then a whole lot of dark roasty malts, almost smokey. all this under a real funky saison yeast. it doesnt work. the flavor is about the same, with the cinnamon taking on the main role. i love the yeast, its really different and potent, and i would love to taste it in a normal saison. all the additives in this make it taste pretty lousy really. not a drain pour, because it is still interesting, but not something i will ever buy again. too many things competing for my palates attention at the same time. mouthfeel is fine though, full bodied and well carbonated, but its not enough to save this beer. possibly me least favorite green flash beer to date, but i do appreciate the creativity, it just didnt work out this time.

Beer is black with a moderately-sized tan head. Head fades fairly quickly. Some lace.

Smell contains spices, along with roasted malt and ginger. Fairly weak smell.

Lots of spice in the taste. Cardamom sticks out for me, also white pepper and ginger. A malty base, somewhat roasted, with some Belgian yeast.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. Irritating.

Overall, meh. Pretty average.

Bottled On: 07/31/12

A: Pours a very dark, near black color with 2+ fingers worth of tan head that lasted for a while

S: Belgian yeast, spices, slight medicinal quality (although as the beer warms, it becomes more of a funkiness), fruit, and some roast

T: Follows the nose. Roast and fruits come through first, followed by light spice and yeast. The medicinal qualities are still there, but toned down a bit from the nose. As it warms, more of the barnyard and funky characteristics come out. Hops provide a light bittering finish

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly drying

O: I always have some difficulties with rating these dark/black saisons just because they deviate slightly from what you would expect from the lighter versions of the style. Oh well... Onto this beer though. The more you let this warm up, the more the medicinal qualities turn into more of a funkiness and barnyard character that you would expect from the style. It is worth letting this beer warm a bit just because of this fact. This is a solid collaboration otherwise

22oz. Damn opaque black pour, a frothy light tan head on top. Just a minute lacing.

Aroma, an earthy sage like spice is pretty heavy. Some citrus and yeasty notes.

Taste, kind of an odd mix of funk and Italian blend spice. Some citrusy notes. A nice herbal bitter finish. Some toast and dainter cocoa as well. There just isn't a whole lot of malt presence here.

Light bodied. Enough carbonation, could use maybe a tick more. Drink easy enough. Feels like if the malt bill was upped just a bit this could have just a little more. But really a pretty good example of the style, just not as interesting as some of the other black saisons.

Bottled 8-7-12

A--Opaque brown/black with beige, bubbly, one-inch head. Good lacing considering large bubbles in head broke down quickly.

S--Subtle, earthy herb like sage or thyme.

T--On the bitter side, which I like, especially in the finish, which I also like. I can't quite figure out what the dominant flavor is, but it's there, and it will pretty much determine whether you like this beer. It is like molasses spiced with something like cloves, but I could be way off. Overall this is not a sweet beer, and the hops manage to shine through everything else.

M--Crisp, strong carbonation, but with touch of syrupiness. Nice.

O--I think it's an excellent fall brew--not too dark, or too cloying like many other fall oktoberfest beers. Nice Cali-Belgium collaboration.

Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! 22 oz bottle poured into a beer mug.

A: Pours a extremely dark brown color that manages to be completely opaque in spite of being less than pitch black. The head is a two finger light mocha color with an almost stout like consistency and texture. Thank cripes this isn't a total foamer the way Rayon Vert was. As the head recedes, plenty of lacing patches stick around.

S: Decently complex, with notes of peppermint, chocolate, grassiness, coriander, funk, phenols, and apples...but there's a cherry cough syrup note that's distractingly hard to shake. Otherwise, it's fairly reminiscent of a fresh cut lawn in a manner.

T: Other reviews are noting this as being 'medicinal', and I'm inclined to agree with them. Flavor-wise, it opens plasticky and slightly harsh. It isn't horribly unpleasant, but it hurts an otherwise solid profile. On the upside, I love the finish of this (at first) - it's full of roasty, bitter coffee.

Come to think about it, once it warms up sufficently, it goes from a 3 to about a 1.5, thanks to the emergence of some cherry flavors - combined with a mere modicum of sweetness, it makes this taste like glorified cherry cough syrup. A textbook example of a trainwreck, plain and simple.

M: Silky smooth and soft yet somehow dry, crisp, and prickly. The actual feel, carbonation, and texture is quite good, it's just the flavor that sucks.

O: Let's chalk this one up as a 'failed experiment', shall we? The medicinal flavors pretty much kill any chances of this being an enjoyable drink. It was fine (but unremarkable) when drunk at a cold temperature, but became pretty nasty as it warmed up. Stay away from this one, I had to drain pour about 3/8ths of this.

Pours an opaque black color with a solid half inch mocha head that lingers.

Sweet tarts, hay, and barnyard funk lead the aroma, with floral and perfumey/medicinal notes adding complexity. There's a subtle sweet roast malt character underneath.

Flavor is very phenolic, with medicinal and rubbery notes overtaking the flavor, carrying into a bitter, very dry finish. Tastes like robitussin with enough barnyard flavor to almost make it drinkable...almost. There's a little sourness, a bit fruity, if you can get past the phenols. Spicy notes surface as it warms, with chamomile, cardamom, and clove providing respite. The roast, burnt character of the malt comes out more, as well, and the medicinal tones subside somewhat.

Body is on the light side, with high carbonation and a bit of roast astringency.

Overall, as with the rayon vert, the medicinal and plastic phenols detract from the experience. The spice phenols are not strong enough to dominate. I'm apparently sensitive to 'bad' phenols, though, so some people may enjoy this more than I. It improves as it warms...so much so that I'd recommend ordering one and leaving it sit 20 minutes or so.

Massive, five-finger, soapy-foamy, head pours a deep java color. Brew looks like an English Brown Ale. Lacing is defined! Unique appearance.

Tons of barnyard funk. Lots of horse blanket and Brett. Caramel and pepper kick in too

This brew is chalky, oat-y, minty, weak, thin, funky, and too experimental without announcement. Biting bitterness, and barnyard sweetness. High (minty) carbonation also detracts from the over all mouthfeel.

Not a good brew. Not recommended. It's weird, overly funky and consumes dark, minty, peppery, and dairy characteristics. Not a well thought out collaboration, I've had better.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color that's completely opaque with a two finger, frothy beige head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. very good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy aroma with peppery spice, farmhouse funk, estery dark fruit and sweet malt notes. There's a subtle grassy character that compliments the funky yeast along with some dark chocolate, licorice, raisin, fig and plum. I'm also picking up a subtle herbal/medicinal presence but it doesn't interfere with the other elements.

Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a strong zesty spice flavor that lingers over the funk and sweeter notes into a dry finish. More syrupy/medicinal than the nose suggests with a slight cough medicine presence. Some dry, earthy hops up front complimenting the peppery spices. The farmhouse character is fainter than expected with slight grassy straw flavor before the malt and dark fruit notes come in to play. Hints of chocolate and toffee along with some grape, fig, plum and dark berries provide some needed sweetness. Pretty complex but the spice profile and medicinal flavors are a bit heavier than I prefer.

Served on tap in a pint glass at Little Pub in Ridgefield, CT.

Pours very dark brown, good thick lasting head of foam. Lacing abound. Roasted smell, some pine. A touch funky. Taste is all at once an oaty fruity coffee. Fascinating blend. Some bitterness holds. Like a porter with an alter ego. Firm mouthfeel. Really good.

A: Poured from the bomber into aDuvel tulip glass. Body is black with a 2-finger milkshake-colored, fairly dense head - looks more like a stout or American porter than anything. Good rings of lace.

S: Florally, perfumey hops over a touch of coffee beans and chocolate. Hint of spice.

T: Spice shows up more prominently in the taste. Malty stuff is there too: slightly burnt toast and char, a touch of dark chocolate or bakers chocolate and molasses. Finishes dry, with a lingering taste of char and bitter, roasted coffee beans. Also some spice towards the back end that I'm having a hard time pinning down - maybe ginger? For some reason "wood" comes to mind. . . . Overall this one drinks like a cross between a porter and a saison.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is active but non-obtrusive .

O: Good stuff. An interesting collaboration beer that actually seems like a collaboration - i.e., a blending of different styles into something new and unique, marrying elements from both brewers. Here, I get San Diego and Belgium. Neat.

A- pours a deep black with a velvity two fingers of dark tan head. Great retention with good lacing.

S- beautiful blend of roasted malt, spice and anise. A kiss of leafy floral hop in the middle. Yeast spice on the finish.

T- rustic dark bready malt envelopes the palate at first. The spice kicks in with mint, anise and nutmeg.touch of floral hop with a lingering roast character on the finish.

MF- sharp mouthfeel with a medium body. Expressive carbonation.

D- good drinkability.

Overall a very unique beer.

12 ouncer, "Bottled on 7/31/12"

Pours black, under a HUGE very dark tan head, that stays and stays, it goes all rocky, frothy and leaves off the chart amounts of thick and very sticky and high lacing. Unusually awesome looking brew.

Floral and perfumed nose, with waves of roasted malts in the rear.

More dark malts, some perfumed interest, but the taste is a bit disappointing after appreciating the stunning look and smell of this collaboration. A bit thin in the mouth, and lacking the complexity teased by the sniff.

Unusual and intriguing, well worth a try but ultimately not quite living up to the potential heralded by the initial look and smell of this interesting beer.

The friendship that has cultivated between Green Flash and St. Feuillien has lead to some amazing Belgian-style beers. This go around, the highly floral character that Green Flash creates in their unique and unilateral Belgian influenced ales reign supreme here.

Unlike any traditional saison, the Friendship brew pours dark; darker perhaps than most Belgian strong dark ales and more like American porter. But capped with a dense sandy head, the beer retains and laces strongly with longevity and speckled lace left behind on the glass.

The extreme perfume notes leap from the glass and into the nose with an intense floral boquet, wrapped with fragrant spruce seemingly of Christmas trees. The malty underpinnings offer a glimpse into light coffee, cocoa, and toast. Any spice balance is largely engulfed by the perfume notes.

Malty flavors strike first to taste, and does so with bitter cocoa, medium toast, coffee grounds, and burnt molasses. But the taste of malt presents itself with dry accompaniment- meaning that the associated sweetness evades and the beer promotes dry malt taste. This makes way for the strong perfume aroma to manifest in taste with rose pedals, ginger, spruce, and the bitter taste of perfume spices. Low in bitterness, the beer achieves balance through it's dry malt and strong spice notes.

Medium-like in mouthfeel, the beer favors lightness although its robust taste makes the mind think "richness". But as soon as the creamy carbonation subsides, the dry char character promotes an arid effect on the mouth with powdery textures and the warm spicy pang of alcohol.

Like their Rayon Vert and Le Freak, this collaboration beer favors those floral, spicy, and perfumy character of Green Flash's Belgian-style beers and less of that from St. Feuillien. Though this is a unique and highly flowery type of taste, I think I prefer the more authentic, more subdued, and authentic taste of St. Feuillen beers better.

A - Dark brown with creamy tan head that flourishes. Good lacing and residuals.

S - Spicy yeast, slightly wild-yeast vibe, with rosemary, anise, and thyme finishing up the profile. Zesty and forward and quite unique. There's some hoppy citrus, with a toasted, roasted malt backing the whole thing up. Some strong roast qualities (soy sauce, charcoal) coming out at the end.

T - Spicy yeast forward with strong bitter that gives way to coffee and chocolate with some subtle fruity tones. Very complex for the style. Somewhere between a saison and a brown ale. Almost a new style entirely. Tropical fruits underlie the spicy, zesty front. A beer to think about.

M - Creamy, rich, yet bright, with a good carbonation.

O - A very unique beer that's worth a try for anyone looking for something new. Has many qualities to consider. Not a session brew, but certainly a good one to talk about and make friends over.

A: Pours an opaque black in color with some very faint clear dark brown highlights when held up to the light. The beer has a two finger tall dense and creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized thick patch, a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass - very good head retention properties. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: The aroma of this beer is primarily dominated by the herbal smells - rosemary, thyme, and sage. There is a light underlying aroma of dark roasted malts with some peppery yeast.

T: The beer starts out with a moderate flavor of dark roasted malts. Next the herbal flavors of rosemary, thymes, and sage come out though slightly less intense than the malts. Finally the beer finishes with some spicy/peppery yeast.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is a very interesting style, a black saison - you lose some of the funkiness and yeastiness of a normal saison but retain the herbaceous qualities (maybe it could have been described as a black gruit as well). I enjoyed the beer but it definitely was not a real easy drinker or a sessionable beer. Perhaps this beer is a little more complex than it needs to be - the flavors and aromas almost compete with one another.

Split a 22 oz bottle poured into a duvel glass

A: pours black with a finger of mocha colored head after a gentle pour, the head shows some decent retention and settles into a film, leavs some good spots of lacing... Looks good.

S: smell is dominated with herbs and spices, I get mint, oregano, basil, sage, rosemary, some other floraly notes, and way in the background I start to pick up some slightly chocolaty dark Malts, seeing as I am not a huge fan of herbs and spiced beers I did not find this aroma very appealing. I also do not get a whole lot of Belgian yeast aroma, perhaps a touch of Clove, but overall I feel the spices overwhelmed the aroma.

T: unfortunately for me, the taste is much like the aroma, although the hops deffinatly make there presence know here, I get a nice west coast American hops right off the bat blended into the spices.... But again I feel as though the spice dominates the taste of this beer... I wish the Malts were more forward and the spices were toned way back. I do not get a whole lite of Belgian yeast flavors from this beer, as I feel they ate drowned out by the herbal/floral/spice notes.

M: medium body with medium carbonation.... Finish is dry and leavs a herby/floral aftertaste that I am not to find of in my mouth.

O: I did not enjoy this beer, too many things that I personally do not enjoy jammed into one bottle, I feel I would have liked this more if the malts were much more forward and the spices were seriously toned back.... Not my cup of tea.
