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.

Appearance is golden amber, with a frothy beige head with somr lacing present. Nose of fruit and pine with underlying traces of grassy earth mixed with spicey Belgian yeasts. The palate is fruity with a clean lemongrass essence that helps pull in the earth and honey like finish. Medium body with a clean dry finish and lingering hops fitting the creative minds who imagined this hybrid.

Clear orange gold with a medium white head. Aroma of pepper, stone fruit, grass. Taste is spicy, black pepper, fruit, flowers, very complex. Reminds me of Epic Brainless IPA, but though I like the Epic, Green Flash just does it better in every way.

From a 65 cl bomber generously shared by Ster of Amsterdam’s BeerTemple at her place. Apparently an intentional hybrid (hence the name as well, I suppose) of tripel and DIPA, with coarse, fairly thick, lacing, stable, egg-white head and deep amberish orange blonde colour, hazy with deposit. Rich and pleasant aroma of orange peel, dry cookies, pink grapefruit, mango, cantaloupe, biscuit, red apple, dry white wine. Sweetish but ’cleanly’ fruity onset, honeyish malt sweetness underneath, refreshing citrus peel, resiny and aromatic hoppy finish coming across as indeed very DIPA-like, with grapefruit, some pine and tropical flowers as well as a dash of warming alcohol. Lovely beer, whatever the style.

Bottle to tulip. Slight hazy orangish golden. Large foamy head, nice lacing. Very sweet nose of vanilla, orange, molasses, pine. Quite sweet, creamy citrus and sharp bitter hops. Lowish carbonation. Seems like a very decent DIPA.

Very interesting ipa with intense malt aroma with a taste of caramel. Full body with nice foam and Bernstein color. Definitely one of my favorites

500 ml bottle. Amber orange color topped by a massive foamy beige head. Fragrant sweet malt aroma. Hints of yeast, honey, tangerine and floral hops. Interesting mashup of styles. Bittersweet caramel malt flavor upfront. Spicy, oily, resiny hops in midtaste. Firm and flavorful with intense hop bitterness and warming alcohol in finish. Quite tasty.

Great! So many things going on. Hef notes Belgian beer notes and west coast hops. All above blended so well. Expensive beer but worth it.
