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.

22oz poured into a pint glass. This beer pours dark gold with a white head. Head lasts for a while then leaves great lacing on the glass. The beer smells of bitter citrus and spruce, with a lingering sweetness. The Taste is a perfect balance of Belgian sweetness and west coast IPA bitterness. Very nice together. Grapefruit and pine dominate at first and the finish is the sweetness and then the bitter again. Nice job.

Pours golden orange with a small white head, smells strongly of yeast with some sweet malt and some hops. Taste is all Belgian trip to me. Lots of wheat and yeast flavors with a small dose of hoppiness. Not bad for a belgian style trippel.

From a bomba into a snifta. No date on bottle... Iíll get to that later. Pours a really pretty amber waves of grain color. About an inch of fluffy head; not much lacing. Aroma of alcohol, honey and bitey hops. Mouthfeel is pretty light; kinda nice. Unfortunately, too carbonated and fizzy. Taste is of bitey hops, a little pine... mostly grapefruit rind. Nice Belgian taste too. Overall a decent Belgian trippel. Iím not sure this is too fresh. Iíll try to get a fresh bottle and re-rate.... Green Flash, please ID your bottles!

Bottle. Malt, yeast aroma. Dark golden body with medium lasting head. Flavor is malty followed by yeast and hops. Hints of citrus and pine. Dry with a Bitter finish.

650 ml bomber. No best by date. Pours a deep orangeish gold with a foamy white head that leaves some nice lacing. The smell is very clovey, very sweet smelling, and very syupy/medicinal smelling. The hops are there but are extremely medicinal. The taste is all over the place, it has a bit of "band-aid"(rubber/plastic), tons of medicinal hops, and some bitterness. It tastes like medicine. I jsut canít enjoy it fully. Overall if you want a good BIPA make sure it is a "B" IPA if you get what I mean. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-03-2010 00:47:46

Smells like lemon, grass, honey, wonderful complex yeasty aroma. Not much head, completely white. Initial tastes are belgian triple, light flower notes, with some bity hops. finishes quite bitter. Not much alcohol presence for 9.2%.

I think I found a way to enjoy a belgian trippel, combine it with an imperial IPA. For me, the combination works real well. A real nice color, and a wonderful aroma. I loved this one.

Slightly hazy copper color in the glass with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Grassy, floral, and citrus hop aroma. A sharp, bitter bite on the front of the palate fades into a sweet malty finish. Probably closer to an IIPA in style than a tripel, in my opinion, but good.

This beer is just incredible. Aroma is like a bear trap - it grabs your nose, and just locks it to the mouth of the glass. I can barely stop sniffing it long enough to drink it. Iím glad I did though. Orange peel, dried/candied lemon, bread, caramel malt, and sweet perfumey hops. Every sip introduces a new flavour or expands upon something in the aroma. Final impression: WOW!

Bottle. Pours orange. Very nice and sweet aroma with citrus hops and caramel notes. Taste is also sweet and hoppy in the tropical fruit way. Also some vegtable notes in the background. Nice. But I dont like the harsh bitterness that ends it. I canít really see why this beer is called an Abbey Tripel, I think it has a lot more similarities with an APA or IPA.
