January 16th, 2012 - Writing this a year and a half after I originally enjoyed it, I now realize that for me, Le Freak is the beer that most symbolizes Green Flash. Adventurous, sour, and unconventional, itís what distinguishes Green Flash from its many neighbors. The smell is sour, and signals a Brettanomyces yeast strain, but also exhibits the VERY unusual aroma of fried eggs, butter and, more conventionally for a Brett brew, hay. The grainy, fresh, spring medley of a saison leads in the first sip, with a scratchy and bubbly palate. Cloves and spice whip the flavor onward, adding black pepper, wildflower, and even a little juniper. Some hops and hoppy bitterness appears in the aftertaste, and some cherry flavored esters smooth over some of the rough, calloused, over-spicy edges. Not too dry, and only slightly too spicy, this is an interesting beer, and worthy of being iconic.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle and draft, Belgian yeast and bubble gum aromas. The hop additions work nicely with the banana esters. Clean finish with only slight lingering sweetness. Really interesting beer.

Colour is orange with white head. Aroma is floral, spicy and yeasty. Taste is little sweet, hoppy and spicy, with good carbonation. Long bitter after taste. Very good beer, but too bitter for me.

I thought this was more IPA than Trippel. Floral aroma. Taste was bracingly bitter. I really enjoyed this.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy gold with floating sediment. Fruity hop aroma. Taste...definitely a cross between a Tripel and IPA. You get the sweet yeasty banana-clove flavors from the Tripel and the intense bitter grassy hops from the IPA. Overall, I don't love the marriage. Very intense, odd combo. A good try but doesn't do it for me.

This is spl beer i like much. Le Freak like song by band Chic reminds me of a time when many people would converge on dance floor and be festive with laser and disco ball. This was a great time because many women would love to shake glorious butt-cheeks to show love for me and I would beciome especially happy at this display of beautiful rears. I was there at local dance hall one night and see this beauty of woman that was having great time and me and my best girl together agreed we should have her come back to villa and enjoy special times with us too. she was full boost and was happy to be with us to party and go in hot tub. we dimmed lights like donna summer siong and put on best louis prima record and joyous occasion of vigor and most special moment of joy for all. i like this beer as it is strong and meaty like special girl from disco that night. I loved her and her glorious butt-cheeks and remains fond memory in mind. i ove to do the needful and please her and best girl together.
