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.

ghawener (1491) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle: Back to an IPA, strange mixture between an IPA and a belgian ale perfectly crafted. Fruity herbal, hoppy and slightly malty. Spicey and piney. Excellent.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle shared with Timfoolery. This one didnt jump out at me. The hoppiness of the IPA took over the flavor of this beer and drowned out the sweetness of the belgian. Good brew, but dont love the blend of the two styles.

Christian (11423) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2008
Cloudy orange with a lasting white head, leaving some lace. IPA seems to dominate the mix. Hop-based citrus and pine aroma, along with a little spice and herb (pepper and thyme) that might be Belgian yeast and sugar. The flavour is fruity and spicy and extremely bitter. Mango, orange and white pepper, most notably. I am a big fan of what Green Flash does with the Californian extreme hopping scheme, and this is no exception.

nuplastikk (4878) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2008
22oz bomber. Pours a cloudy orange tan color with a big foamy head. Has that aroma of American No Holds Barred Candi Sugar overkill. I suppose the same can be attitude has been used in the hopping. The collision of the two is quite excellent. Rich, sweet, sandy, sugary, hoppy, yeasty, this is a really complex beer. Bitter, piny, sweet, sticky aftertaste. Lots of yeast sediment at the bottom that only adds to the rich creaminess.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Pours a yellow caramel color with a thin, quick settling head. Minimal retention or lacing. Aroma is spicy and floral with notes of honey, ripe fruit, and citrus. Flavor is sweet and malty with spicy, floral and yeast notes. Generally medium body with a slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish.

Butters (3920) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2009 Sampled at decaturstevos zapit tasting. Pour a golden yellow with decent white head. Sweet belgian yeast aroma witha hoppy spicy flavor. Interesting blend but just not something that comes across as amazing to me.

Dedollewaitor (14259) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle from VinensVerden, Odense. Pours hazy golden yellow with a creamy white head & lacings. Nose is fresh of American hops, pine, citrus & grapefuit but it also has a touch of Belgium yeast & spices like clove & coriander. Quite inviting. Taste is yeast & spices at first before a punchy bitterness kicks in and stays in the mouth for quite some time. Full bodied. Pleasant warmth from alcohol. A nice blend of two classic styles.

bottle, golden pour with the pulp, good foamy head, aroma of sugary pine, flavor of grapefruit juice and sugar cubes, hoppy finish
