Beer Review: Green Flash/St. Feuillien Biere De l’Amitie

In Belgian Strong Pale Ale, Reviews on November 26, 2010 at 4:01 am

Another collaboration, Green Flash from California, known for hop bombs, and St. Feuillin, out of Belgium created this Belgian Ale with a West Coast twist.  Here’s my review:

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.

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

ABV: 9.5%
