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.

kept this one about 9 months and really enjoyed it. Truly a blend of IPA and tripel, or perhaps a dry hopped tripel...Itís golden and sweet with enough hops through it to make it trulky unique and add some bite. Definitely worth a shot.

22oz bottle from Pickís poured into a Trappist glass. Pours a dark amber/orange with about 1 finger of frothy off-white head. Slight hint of sweet malt but aroma is mostly of citrus hops. Taste is heavy bitter and a lightly sweet aftertaste. You can really taste the hops in there. Medium bodied with a thick, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, itís pretty good. If it wasnít the last bottle in my store I would probably buy another. Although, I think itís more along the lines of an imperial IPA rather than a tripel. Another great beer by Green Flash!

22 oz bottle, poured a light amber with smaller head. The nose wasnít as prevalent as I had hoped but the taste blew me away. Really enjoyed this taste. Fruity with a bitter finish that lingered. Hopy and smooth at the beginning with a little "pow" at the end. Freaking out about this one... Sorry, had to!

Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma has hints of hops, citrus and grapefruit. flavor is yeast, malts that balance out the hops. Pretty good blend, but not my favorite style.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, fruity, yeasty and spicy. Flavor is medium sweet and rather bitter. Dry, bitter and spicy finish. 020711

Poured from 22oz bomber - On the pour, it looks like a pale ale or amber. Not exactly appealing aroma: hints of dough and cherries. A lot of IPA overpowers Belgian notes--but rest assured they are there! Iím even surprised by my relatively low rating of this one, but canít justify a higher rating at this time.

Aroma of sour peach, dough, and candies cherries. Pours deep orange with a light head. Tastes of sour dough, cherries, and apricot. Overhyped for a Belgian IPA but good.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 Tap @ URBN + Growler @ GF. Pours copper with decent off-white head and good lacing. Amazing aroma of lemon, grapefruit, and orange to compliment the yeast and spice. This one is definitely more IPA than tripel, but the yeast and maltiness do compliment the hops well. Bitter finish. I love this beer.

22oz bottle pours clear gold with a 2 finger head. Aroma is IIPA grapefruit citrus against a sweet caramel background with a hint of spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is very similar to the smell with very little Belgian yeast prescence. Body is full and sticky like a tripel but finishes dry and hoppy like an IPA. Another great hybrid style for Belgian-shunning hopheads to expand their horizons into the world of Belgians.
