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.

Sample at the brewery. An innocent looking golden pour leads to an extremely sticky sweet taste. Of the six beers tried this was my least favorite.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Bomber. Pours a solid dark honey golden color with lots of sea foam head and active carbonation. The aroma blends floral hops and tangerine citrus with Belgian yeast. The flavor starts out like a traditional DIPA with some herbal hops, pine and grapefruit. Then it shifts to more of a Trippel with Belgian yeast, cloves, malt and alcohol notes. The body is smooth with lively carbonation and a finish that’s all hops bitterness and cloves. Overall, a unique and flavorful brew that’s a must-try for fans of DIPAs and Trippels.

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 08/25/2011. The beer is a dark orange-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and yeast. Medium body with a citrusy hops character and notes of sweet yeast, malt and spice. The finish is hoppy at first and leaves a spicy yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2011
This one pours Orange and cloudy. Medium sized and almost white head. Fruity, sweet and hoppy aroma. A nice mix of bitter and sweet. It has the long bitterness of an IPA but there is a sense of the belgian yeastiness and sweetness. It seems like the new wave of "New Style" brews.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. A hazy orange beer with a medium long living off white head. Aroma is sweet, tart and hoppy at once, with notes of citrus, belkgian yeast, caramel, lemongrass, coriander and floral hops. Taste is sweet malty, light yeasty, fruity and hoppy bitter, with a refreshing tart undertone, that nicely balances the boozy ABV.
