Le Freak is a modern ale created by converging two beer styles, Belgian Trippel and American Imperial IPA. The use of two yeast strains further marries the styles and American hops give the beer its modern flare.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2008
22 oz. bottle on 10/20/2008. Faintly turbid amber/gold body under a medium, yet durable, off white head with thin strands of lace. Stone fruits are noticeable early, followed by bitter citrus, spice, and some yeast. Bitterness enters quickly, making the underlying floral honey flavors almost an afterthought. Long, bitter finish has peppery qualities, bringing on the desire for another swallow. Medium body and carbonation, resinous, very dry palate. Certainly different, and marrying the best qualities of two different styles with a surprising effectiveness.

Poured a gldeon yellow/orange color with an off white head. Aroma was very strange, some sort of spice and garbage flavor? Flavor was much the same, maybe we got an infected btach but this stuff was bad.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip has a copper yellow color and a thin white head that diminished quickly. aroma has spices, light citrus hops, nice floral yeast, candy sugar, over ripe dark fruit, flowery pollens, and dough. mouth feel is light with hefty biting carbonation. flavor is really unique and interesting. there is some upfront bitterness, spices, hefty yeast, and underlying hops that get drowned out a bit. sweetness is just enough to keep the bitters in check, dough, and alcohol. certainly an interesting marriage of styles and flavors

Bottle shared at Trapppeze. Pours hazy gold with a big white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, hops, spice. Pretty interesting. Taste is a liitte sour, with more hop bitterness, and yeast. Overall, this hoppy trippel is a nice smooth drinker. Body is light and carbonated.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle. Sampled at the Stock Market’s Wasting Craft Beer Tasting in Voorhees, NJ. Hazy orange under a generous and long-lasting off white head. Slightly sour but solidly citrus aroma that is very intriguing. Initially, the sweeter Trippel flavor profile pops out but it soon plays second fiddle to the more aggressive West Coast piney, citrusy, grapefruit hops. Sweetness grabs more attention again in the finish. Smooth texture. Perhaps an odd blend of styles but they play well with one another better than you might expect. Worth a try.
