Collaboration ale with Green flash.

Hazy gold with rushing bubbles and a lush, whipped look. yeastie bits providing lots of life to a full, clumpy, pure-white head that stands strong. Lots of lace with ultra-slow dissipation.

Big earthy, musky hop aroma, whole cone, freshly picked, wet hop-like hop aroma...honestly, I've never smelled a more potent freshly picked hop cone aroma. amazing. Tangy yeast with big earthy musty musk, dry earth and spices, golden wheat...did I mention that amazingly fresh Amarillo hop scent???!! slightly fruity but damn...that hop aroma is nice.

The first hit is a big WOW. amazingly complex flavor's and supremely jazzy, lush feel that keeps this interesting right til the very last drop. The yeast is simply amazing, hearty musky dry earth, add the delightful, fresh hop flavor and it's off the charts! Crisp, light wheat flavored malt with subtle sweetness and gentle spices and pepper. The hops are not at all bitter but dry, earthy and full of hearty flavor. The hops and yeast together provide everything i love in the flavor of this style. The malt plays a supporting role in just the right way. The warming heat is a gentle presence that falls right into the balance perfectly.

This collaboration delivers the best of the Old and New world style's in all of the best ways, the fresh American hops and traditional complex yeast brings forth a perfectly forged brew for the ages. I love this style, and this version is beyond the pale!

Had this awesome beer at the Town Hall Brewery bowling Ally!

It is a complex and wonderfully beer!

Green Flash has a great beer line and I am stoked they hooked up with St. Feuillien for this strong ale!

Apperance: Orangish pale and cloudy with nice lacing

Smell: Belgish yeast and biscuits

Taste: yeasty and malty and smooth with a slight sweetness and biterness

Mouthfeel: a after taste of dryness that finishes very well

Overall: a beer to enjoy for a minimum of an hour as it warms the flavors really come out, but worth starting cold

A: crazy 4 finger head with streams of champagne bubbles, coating the glass in foam. Great head retention.

O: Delicious! Refreshing and drinkable but with plenty of flavor.

Had this on tap at the grill next door in Haverhill, MA a few days ago so will be doing this review by memory.

A~ Looked like what you would expect from a belgian strong pale... light color, thick white head great lacing.

S~ Smell kind of reminded me of a Delerium Tremons, very complex, some strong belgian yeast notes in there, maybe some fruity/ citrus notes in there as well. Great smelling beer.

T~ WOW, after having my first taste of this I actually started laughing because it was so good. Exactly what you want to expect out of the style, a great tasting beer, cannot tell that its 9.5 percent at all. The malty spicyness completely tookover and just made this beer a pleasure to drink all the way down... very happy I had a chance to drink this on tap while it was available.

M~ Good carbonation levels, not too high, not too low. Very refreshing after a long day of work in the sun.

O~ Great beer, if you have a chance to try this beer I highly recommend you do so, for it will only be around so long.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - This came out a beautiful light hazy orange in color that almost seemed yellow from some angels. The cloudiness in the beer was exceptional. The head came up nicely as well making this one a real beauty shop.

Smell - This is a rich bouquet of powerful pale-colored spices, mostly cardomom, with some big pale wheat and a monster hop aroma. The hops are not Belgian but not West Coast either so that's kind of confusing, but they are big and leafy promising lots of bitterness. The core yeast, most certainly Belgian, is actually big and intense enough to stand up to the hops. Oh, this is gonna be good.

Taste - The hops were powerful at the taste as well. They aren't piney like typical West Coast hops but lighter and citrusy in a big, big way. The hop flavor is very lingering as well, staying with the drinker will after the swallow.

The yeast and spices, which most assuredly come from St Feuillien, are classic Belgian all the way. The yeast is big and powerful and stands up well to the American hops, and the spices are light in color such as white pepper and cardamom but incredibly strong.

Mouthfeel - This is full-bodied with some amazing carbonation that is tight and energetic. It provided that ultra-velvety feel against your cheeks that you come to expect from quality efforts at the style. The finish is dry, long and lingering.

Drinkability - This is probably the best collaboration ale that I've ever head. They are mostly overhyped IMO and trying to get two different breweries to work together on a winning beer is difficult in the first place. Add to that two breweries on opposite ends of the Atlantic and you have a near impossibility, yet proven total wrong here as this combination can't be beat. This is a slow drinker for sure but worth every sip.

This friendship beer is an incredibly risky combination of Belgian yeast character similar to a strong golden ale, sweet orange Amarillo hops, and spicy rye malt. To me, it is genius.

The beer is clear golden and smells of oranges and spices. The taste is unique among the beers I've tasted. It is dark and spicy, sweet and citrusy, and earthy, all at once. There is at least one sweet spot in the three-dimensional space defined by these flavors, and L'Amitie found it.

There may be some orange peel or cardamom in there. There may be spicy noble hops. The taste is different enough that you may have more questions than answers. A mystifying beer. I wish I had gallons to ponder.

this smells like a strong saison and tastes like a west coast version of a belgian pale. it's very very good. pours a nice gold with a good finger head that leaves good lace. fair carbonation, but it was hard to tell in the dimly lit bar. at 9.5% this is insanely drinkable. i don't think this even warrants comparisons to duvel, as it's very different. get this while you can!

A - Pours with a large, three finger head of white foam on top of a clear, golden body. Streams of bubbles rise turbulently to the surface and support the head, giving it near infinite retention.

S - Herbal, spicy hops with an underlying note of sweet, bready malt. Some gentle, fruity yeast in the background with pear, pineapple, and vanilla.

T - Sweet, bready malt up front with a bit of pear and pineapple yeast character. Some herbal hop notes come out in the middle, complimented by yeasty clove. Finishes with a moderate bitterness, balanced by sweet malt with vanilla, clove, and lemony hop flavors.

M - Medium-thick body, very high carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

D - Wow, this is an excellent beer! The malt and hops combine beautifully with the yeast to produce a classic example of the style. The yeast has an excellent level of complexity with notes of pear and vanilla that are tempered by a spicy clove note that accentuates the hops. I don't get much in the way of American hop character from the amarillo that is apparently in here (just a hint of citrus towards the finish), but there is an excellent grassy, herbal hop essence that works perfectly with the malt and yeast. Everything about this beer is well executed, from the color to the silky mouthfeel and vigorous carbonation that speaks of masterful bottle conditioning, this is a really wonderful example of craftsmanship. To my palate, there is a lot more St. Feuillien than Green Flash in this bottle but I am not complaining in the least as this represents an all too rare treat: a truly world class Belgian strong pale ale!

Poured into a Duvel goblet.

A: Hazy golden yellow with a billowy white head. Excellent lacing. Very very good looking beer.

S: Spicy. White pepper, floral and citrus.

T: Malty and spicy, soft fruit notes. Quite a pleasant beer. Hop bitterness does not dominate but rather the hops flavors do a nice job of contributing to the overall beer.

M: Medium mouthfeel. Finishes fairly dry, but it's got a decent amount of body to it.

D: Pretty high for me, this went pretty fast and paired quite well with a wood fired pizza.

From bottle to tulip glass

Pours a light, cloudy blond with lots of vibrant carbonation, forming a sudsy, two-inch head. The sea-foam head shows strong retention, but as it slowly recedes, little lacing is left in its trace. There are plenty of earthy, spicy tones in the nose, including coriander and orange zest, backed by ample alcohol volatiles. An earthy funk is prevalent at the front of the sip. Layers of spice are along for the ride. A nice citrusy profile is also noted, presumably from the West Coast hops, which seamlessly blends with the grassy, funky tones. Honey, biscuit-like malts not only round out the flavor but give the brew a unique backdrop - like freshly baked artisan bread. Alcohol warms but is well masked. The hop bite dries the beer toward the finish, leaving a relatively crisp aftertaste.

The brew has a rich, velvety mouthfeel. Its carbonation matches its rich complexion and works to scrub your palate with each sip. Nothing is out of place here, and, even though the beer has 'big' character, its 9.5% ABV quickly becomes an afterthought. It gets HUGE points for sticking to a traditional Belgian style while adding just a twist of American hoppy goodness. Complex, flavorful, unique - there are plenty of flavors here to be unraveled and pondered, and this should do well with age. I'm glad I bought two.

Pours a hazy gold with ample head that last awhile. Need to be careful pouring this, even at cold temperatures, as the head can be voluminous. That sometimes happens with Belgian golden ales. If you let it sit awhile, the head will eventually recede to a fine layer. Better to pour carefully and not have to wait.

Aromas of banana and tropical fruits (which others describe as band-aid). I also smell some coriander and ginger spices.

Taste has that belgian malt and yeast going, with buttery Chardonnay-like flavors and nice assortment of tropical fruit salad flavors. Hops are there in the finish, smooth and very green, as Green Flash beers can be. One could argue this could just as well be a St. Feuillien/Popperinge collaboration, but I really taste the Green Flash hop style in this. Probably the American hops coming through. But I am all over this flavor, which I think could define what a Belgian IPA could be.

Body is light, and ample carbonation makes this creamy, almost mousse-like.

This beer is a delight and cheers to St. Feuillien and Green Flash for bringing this to the table. It is amped at 9.5%, which makes it a strong ale, but to me, it is a definitive version of what a Belgian IPA should be.

Pours, a hazy golden color. It produced a long lasting fluffy white head.
The aroma was of honey, banana, citrus.
The taste was slightly sweet, honey, spices, citrus, bready. The alcohol is barely noticeable. The carbonation is high, and has a sticky medium mouth-feel.
Fairly easy drinking.

750ml bottle: The cork came out of this one with a very loud "POP". The pour had a huge amount of a frothy white head on it. It left a fair amount of lacing. Nice aroma to this one. I get floral notes, honey, spices, yeast and some fruits. This has a really nice flavor. There is a slight tartness to it. Some lemon, breadiness, spices in the taste. It has a medium to full body to it, yet has a bit of lightness in the mouth. Absolutely no clue that the ABV is over 9%. Very nice!

I have been looking forward to trying this collaboration. Green Flash is one of my favorite breweries so I was curious how the collaboration would be.

Serving - 22 oz bottle

Pours a cloudy golden color. Head is large, white with big bubbles. It does not adhere to the glass much. The aroma is evident just from the pour. You can smell vanilla, yeast and lots of spices. Taste is smooth with a little bit of bitterness toward the end. You can taste the spices. Very complex. Carbonation is high and you can feel it in the mouth. Overall, very good and very complex.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a big white head. In the aroma orange citrus, coriander, dry yeast and hop notes. In the taste, spicy, dry hoppiness, and yeast notes. A spice bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry hop and spice aftertaste. Nice hop presence and quite spicy. A very nice beer.

Straw gold in color with a white rocky head.

Belgian yeast is quite evident, from the spice, like coriander, with the backing of American hop additions, which lends to a citrus aroma.

It is bready at first with some spice, citrus and clove coming through along with some esters, rounding out to a citrus and hoppy finish.

Lively carbonation leads to a bready, yeast taste that creates an earthy yet floral hoppy note.

This would be a great cheese beer both from the carbonation and the floral, herbal, earthy flavors. Great balance of Belgian style with American innovation. A very drinkable beer, will definitely buy again.

This beer comes out of the bottle lively but by no means fizzy, forming a very nice soft and fluffy-looking but very strong head that's pure white. It rests at two fingers and shows exemplary retention as it supports the brew for the entirety of the session. The beer itself is a cloudy bu very bright yellow-gold color with a little yeast sediment in there. Lacing sticks in some rings that develop a bit of webbing down the walls of the glass.
The malts in this beer must be pretty well-varied, as they give off both drier, more crackery notes, a bit of dough, and some not-quite toasty breads. The malts are complemented by a certain grassiness with an herbal edge and a bit of citrus pith alongside light tropical fruits sweetness before a slightly tart lemony note shows. Alongside comes an easy sort of gentle spicing, adding just a touch of white pepper and definite soft notes of clove.
There's an earthy, raw, stemmy sort of moderate hoppiness that comes out up front on the tongue, then gives way to the softer, sweeter and brighter notes. Clove rests easily underneath, while fresh lemon adds a lightly tart sort of juiciness to even the sweetness and the light bitterness. There's plenty of citrus running through all the while, working together with the gentle spicing. Herbal and dustier earthy notes only add complexity without muddling the flavor. Alcohol is warming and adds a mellow effect, well managed despite its strength.
This beer is well-carbonated, managing a smooth, creamy fluffiness without being overly filling. It's massively soft in the near-medium body, keeping from a chalkiness that seems impossible to avoid given the absolute dryness, particularly in the finish. It manages all this while maintaining a delicate crispness.

Served to me on tap at Dexter's Pub (Madison WI) into a rather large brandy snifter.

Appears a slightly murky golden straw color with no head, but rather a small ring of foam. I wish I had unobstructed line of sight to see how aggressively the bartender poured it, but alas this was not the case.
The nose is an odd thing. If the snifter is swirled briefly, the brew releases small controlled bursts of delicious Saison spicing and horseblanket funk... but in very light amounts and only for short periods of time. When left alone and settled, the nose is entirely Belgian in character. By which I mean it smells of pears and peaches poached in a lightly sweetened vanilla syrup, mashed up into psuedo jam or preserves, and spread upon a biscuit or cracker with a chaser of lemony citrus hops. Taste follows the nose mostly, the intermittent Saison character blending in with the Amarillo hopping so intertwined that it becomes a single entity, counterbalancing the sweetness of the malt quite nicely yet not overpowering it. Somebody did a great job of balancing this brew. There is an interesting sort of subdued earthy twang to the malt flavor that I associate with properly done rye malts. Body is pleasingly carbonated, on the lighter side of medium heft, crisp and refreshing.
The name translated means "Friendship Beer" I know that I certainly am great friends with this beer now that I have been introduced. :)

Somewhat cloudy, pale yellow body with a thick, chunky white head. Zesty lemon, lime, green apple, and other citrus and spice notes announce the smell, loud and clear. Sweet, tangy, tart flavors dominate the flavor; almost some cinnamon undertones; distinct bitterness and alcohol presence wraps things up, taste-wise. Light, crisp and dry mouthfeel with a lively carbonation on the tongue.

To say this beer has complexity is an understatement. There's a world of nifty flavors abounding. In one way, it seems like I'm drinking an interesting apple-cinnamon strudel beverage with a nice alcohol kick to it, but it is much more than that. In any case, this is a wonderful departure from my usual beers, nice depth and complexity to the flavors, all with nicely balanced overall.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pour a solid gold color with fairly good head retention and lacing. The nose is just wild, showing white pepper, flowery, perfumy hops, lime and tangerine. The flavor profile isn't quite as complex, but otherwise replicates the nose pretty closely. The lime, tangerine and white pepper take center stage in this beer, and the beer finishes with a dry, hoppy finish. For a hophead, this is just a lovely beer. Mouthfeel is fairly light, something I find incredible given the abv. Nevertheless, there is plenty of flavor in this fine beer, and drinkability is exceptional. The alcohol is brilliantly integrated into the flavor profile.

Wow. Really liked this beer. It really grew on me the more I drank it, and all I can say is that I hope it's around for a while. Very, very nice.

750 ml, bottled on 060614. Gorgeous to behold as it is at the same time beautifully clear and golden while showing a gentle carbonation and a plentiful amount of suspended particles of yeast. A billowing head that remains for days and leaves copious clumps as evidence of its presence proffers aromatic pilsner malts and heady Belgian yeast. Delightful light funk, mild spicy and peppery notes. A hint of banana and white grapes. A whiff of licorice that hides the slightest trace of alcohol. Taste is outstanding. Bready pilsner malt and light Belgian candi sugar sweetness is quickly enveloped in melon juiciness that quickly transitions to a delicate but firm American citrus IPA like hoppiness. Finish is exceptionally clean and dry with a touch of heat that barely gives notice to the amount of alcohol lurking in the glass. Feel is full and creamy while maintaining an unbelievable lightness that makes it easy to transition from sipping and appreciating to sessioning or pounding. It's just that drinkable and delicious. This is one of my favorites of the year past or the year to come. It's just that good. I'm going back to see if I can score a few more bottles of this intoxicatingly lovely liquid. Wow!

poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a MJ Beer Hunter Tasting Glass.

Pours with a stark white, large billowy head on top of a light, almost hazy straw colored beer. Head stands up over time fairly well, with a mix of large and small tight bubbles.

Aromas of citrus (lemon), pepper, and yeast.

First sip is of lemon, chalk, pepper, and a lingering alcohol bite. Kind of a mix between a saison and a triple. What ever spices are actually in this are subdued, not overdone.

Mouthfeel is clean and light, with some carbonic bite.

Very drinkable beer, nice collaboration between St. Feuillien and Green Flash.

A delightfully zesty and bubbly Belgian pale ale with the dryness and spice of a saison but with the hop rates that straddle tripels and Belgian IPA's. All with the lemony undertones and grassy finish.

The beer pours with hazy golden color with suggestions of yeast floating about. Very impressively, the billowing cotton white head forms a mousse-like blanket on the beer and shows the most stubborn of retention values. Lacing on the glass blurs the line where the head stops and lace begins. Very Belgiany indeed.

Pilsner malts give a rich bready, lightly biscuity aroma along with grainy sweetness and cracker-like crispness. Elements of fruit and herbs blend together with lemon/lemon grass leading the way. Ongoing citrus note reveal appricot, apple/crabapple, and grapefruit. Grassy notes develop into sharp olfactory sensations of white pepper, orange peel, clove, and tea-like earthiness.

Delicious flavors errupt from the fruity and spicy aromas. A fleeting malty sweetness gives life to the fruity esters and carry a short-lived grainy/malty taste from initial sips and into the rich mid palate. Citrus flavors from hops along with the acidity of beer reinforce the lemony and grapefruity bitterness that eventally close the taste. Spicy flavors give a rounded and smooth bitterness/bite to the hops and phenolic notes without forming any distracting flavors. Vodka-like alcohols become more prevailant as the beer warms.

Most impressively, the body is exquisit in it's early and expressive carbonation and ultra dry finish. As the beer hits the mouth, it errupts in an airy malty mouthfeel that lifts the beer from the surfaces and ushers in a mid palate that evaporates like cotton candy- leaving a bone dry finish, pleasant warmth, and the memory of confectioner's sugar and citrusy spice.

An absolutely beautiful beer that takes me back to the first time I tried Duvel. Absolutely effortless to drink, the beer borrows what's best from stronger Belgian pale ales, saison spice and dryness, and the assertive hoppy push of tripels and Belgian IPA's.

Served on tap into 9oz snifter.

Pours a murky golden color, with decent head retention and sticky lacing.

Aroma has a ton of citrus - surprised me - almost IPA like. Decent grassy, and earthy qualities come through as it warmed a bit.

Flavor is just wild - lots of herbal, minty, and floral qualities. I'd almost characterize this as an IPA/Saison or Belgian IPA. Good herbal hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Terrificly smooth, with just the right carbonation. Slightly cloying from the high alcohol, but did not realize it was 9.5% until I saw it here.

Good drinkability, but suffers a tad (relative to the style) from the strong herbal bitterness.

750ml poured into an Ephemere Tulip

Appearance - Huge bright white head that grows and grows. Golden yellow to honey color with a constant stream of small bubbles feeding the head. Head slowly (10 min) dissipates into a thick 1 inch froth.

Smell - Big nose of grassy hops mixed with light yeast and floral fruity tones.

Taste - Backs up the nose with fruity hops mixed with spices and yeasty esters. Alcohol adds a 3rd dimension to the flavor...not over powering but definitely apparent in the backbone.

Mouthfeel - Light but with a creamy/smooth element. Once it enters your mouth it expands as the carbonation turns the beer into a froth. The beer has enough texture to feel as if it coats your mouth.

Drinkability - Alcohol slows down the drinking a little bit, but this beer is airy enough to seem light. The addition of hops keeps the spices and sweetness at bay helping the overall drinkability.
