On-tap at Prime 16 into a St. Feuillien chalice. Cheers to proper glassware!

A: Very lightly hazed light gold body underneath a finger of persistent, delicate white foam. Absolutely outstanding retention and good lacing. Great looking BSPA.

S: Citrus hops, pale malts, and pronounced artificial plastic-y astringency. Weird.

T: Big medicinal, phenolic, band-aid notes up front, with fruity yeast only showing up at the very tail end. Bitter overall, but more from the medicinal astringency than the hops. Not great. Kind of bad, actually.

M: Medium body with plenty of sharp carbonation.

D: Difficult to finish - not because of the alcohol, but rather the flavor.

Notes: I really, really wanted to like this beer. I love Green Flash (especially their IPAs), and was excited finally to see something they had a hand in in CT. Unfortunately, this doesn't hold a candle to West Coast IPA (much less their DIPA). Possibly the most medicinal beer I've ever had, which is not a good thing. Thanks to P16 for the opportunity to try it.

Cheers!

On tap at Churchill's in a snifter.

A: Vibrant straw golden with a soft fizzy white head.

S: Belgian yeast, wheat, and strong coriander. A dash of rye and a little orange. Subtle floral notes. Perfumey and aromatic.

T: Coriander is strong, with orange and a little pepper and grass. I get some bubblegum . Finish is spicy. 

M: Medium light body with lower high carbonation. Dry mouthfeel.

Overall: Insipid. Wouldn't want to drink much of this. Actually, I wouldn't want to drink any quantity of it again.

Draft at the Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver, CO.

Pours a clear golden orange color with golden yellowish orange hues and a two finger frothy, soapy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. Chunks of soap lacing left behind.  

Sweet estery, light fruit aroma with hints of zesty peppery spice, alcohol, bubblegum and earthy, soily hops.  Belgian esters are  very prominent with bubblegum, light fruit and zesty peppery spice.

Medium bodied with a dry earhy hop preence up front which isn't too bitter. This is complimented by zesty peppery spice, notably coriander, pepper and bitter hops.  There's also a strong Belgian estery light fruit presence with hints of bubblegum, apple and strawberry.  alcohol phenols and heat toward thw finish.  The 9.5% is decently nsskrd with heat toward the finish and slight wamrth in the chest.  Faint malts underneath but this beer is all spice and hop up front followed by sweet fruit and bubblegum with booziness in finish.

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.

on tap into a Gulden Draak tulip.

poured a gold / light orange with about an inch head. very cloudy...

the smell was very citrusy yet filled with spice and a saison like funk. probably my favorite part of this brew. while taste and smell go hand in hand, I preferred to smell it than the taste.

very carbonated. similar to the few Green Flash brews I have had. for my tastes, too carbonated...

is it just me or does this brew seem almost as if it is a blend of Green Flash IPA and the Feuillien Saison?

From 7/24/10 notes. Got to try at the Captain Lawrence cdc release.

a - Pours a murky golden color with one inch of white head.

s - Smells of floral and citrus hops, as well as a little bit of spices.

t - Tastes of spices, yeast, and citrus hops and fruits.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A decent Belgian style ale. Probably wouldn't seek out again.

S: Very spicy. Corriander? Cloves. Lemon. Alcohol.

T: Cloves. Spices. Lemon.

M: Medium bodied. Sticky feel.

O: Decent brew. Probably not for me. Little to sweet/sour.

St. Feuillien Biere de l’amitie
750mL bottle into a chalice
Bottled on: 6/6/14

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow, with just under 1 fingers width of bright white head, that dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves only a few very small patches of lacing. 3.75

S: Spice, but its a unique spice, not one that I typically get in the style. Something I can’t quite place, maybe tyme or rosemary? Citrus, Beligan yeast esters, lemon, its got an almost tart lactic character. Really bizarre nose that I’m not a huge fan of. 3.25

T: The taste doesn’t really convey what I got in the aroma, which I would say is a good thing. Wheat, yeast, peppery spice, sweet esters on the finish, some lemon citrus, a fair amount of bitterness. Lots going on, but it works well together. 3.75

M/D: Heavier carbonation, which is appropriate, a bit dry on the finish, medium body, ABV is very well masked, and drinkability is pretty good. 4

O: An interesting brew. I was not a fan of the aroma, liked the flavor more, but still not blown away. Glad I tried it, but not something I would likely go to again in the future. 3.5

The sample I bought popped like champagne, but at least I didn't get a beer "Old Faithful." Nevertheless, open with care - and be damned careful where you point the bottle because that cork is likely to come shooting out like a bullet! Strong, fruity aroma has banana and apple components, a yeasty underpinning, and hints of malt, wheat and honey. Pours a clear, bright solar yellow with a fluffy and very thick, if not too persistent, white head. Fruity flavor has a strong grassy component, a little like lettuce or spinach that is past its prime, as well as hints of yeast, woody hop bitterness, and honey sweetness. That vegetable component seems to lessen as I drink it, but it does bug me. Sorry, a point off there. Smooth texture has a lively fizz and good body. I love collaboration brews - they may not always be the best, but they're fun to try.
