COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2008
22 oz Bottle. Crazy nose. Mint, fruit, citrus, nutmeg, clove, so many different things going on. The ’’usual Belgian’’ smell but tons more. Great orange amber color; light fluffy head that dissapated to light lace rather quickly. Feels thick in the mouth before I can even taste it. Next taste I get is creamy, then Belgian then... Lots of movement. The kind of beer you’d have to drink a number of times to really get a firm grasp of. It’s like the orange with the cloves stuck in it. Tangggy. Lagery sharpness. YUM

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, grass, Belgian yeast, pepper, cloves, light citrus, slight orange marmalade, light fruit. Very pleasant scent. Poured pumpkin-orange/amber in color with a huge, dense, creamy, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Opaque. Some tiny particles. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, resin, pine, citrus, fruit, pepper, yeast, and spices. Medium body. Smooth, chalky texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy, resinous, dry finish. I really liked this brew.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Deep orange color with a medium head. Aroma is solidly sweet with candi sugar and a nice amount of citrus and floral hops. Flavor has some nice spicy, hoppiness right away with sugar, bread, and oranges to finish things off. Nice feel. Overall good - I like most of the ’’Belgian Trippel/DIPAs’’, but with so many it becomes hard to do something new. Lots of hops and sugar, but this one is middle of the pack in my opinion (though still very good)

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.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Golden color with a thin, white head. Aroma of citrus hops and some clove. Flavor is hoppy with some piney notes, candi sugars. Prickly, spicy mouthfeel. Heavy carbonation. Long, peppery finish. Interesting take.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Bomber. Hazy amber/orange with a large, creamy head. Aroma is heavily yeasty with cloves and a lot of floral hops and fruity sweetness (pear, apple). Heavy body with a spicy/dry finish.

Skinnyviking (6925) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draught. Low and quickly disappearing white head. Hazy yellow body. Spicy aroma and flavor with banana lemon and piney notes as well as some hoppyness as well. High carbonation. Long aftertaste. A bit strange but OK.

Beerman6686 (4293) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2008
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.
