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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2009
22oz bottle: Pours to an opaque, cloudy medium amber colored body with a medium eggshell colored head that lasts the entire length of drinking the beer (in my case about 20min/glass). The aroma is fruity esters of banana, clove, and peach skin, some sweet light malts, and hints of earthy & flowery hops. The taste is flowery hops and sweet bready malt up front, followed by some more intense spicy & pine bitter hops, a peppery alcohol burn, with some light lemon notes and a hint of sweet, lightly caramelized malt hiding in the background. The finish shows strong retronasal hop scents of grapefruit rind and pine, with residual sweetness in the mouth, almost covered up by the lingering bitterness from the hops. The body on this beer is perfect - medium bodied, medium carbonation, both of which combine with the unfiltered nature of the beer to create a silky, velvety & creamy mouthfeel, while still receiving crispness from the tiny carbonation bubbles created from bottle conditioning. Although the mouthfeel is perfect, I’m not sure I like the blending of these two styles as the hops tends to drown out some of the other flavors.

funky decent aroma,l taste is harsh with wild hop flavors. the malts give a flavor of an IPA the mouth feel is wild and scrubbing.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2009
The aroma is very hoppy with citrus and grass. It’s also got fruit and malt. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma and rather bitter. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall it’s decent but a little to astringent.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Beatiful hazy golden amber with big frothy head. Aroma is spicy yeast with a bit of pineapple sweetness. Taste is fusel alcohol, belgian yeast with big clashing bitterness. This one didn’t work for me...just clashes.

Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2009
Flaske. Suverænt aftenens vinder. Klar strågul uklar øl. Kraftig humlet trippel smag, der fungerer upåklageligt. Virkelig en fin fin fusionsøl der bringer det bedste fra to verdener sammen.

GranvilleTim (1441) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Dark orange color with light beige head that lasted. I could not quite make out any distinguishable aromas. The beer left an enjoyable aftertaste long after the beer was gone. It was like no other beer that I have tasted before and that being a good thing.

A really nice brew. A good trip, but with lots of hoppiness. Well worth a sample. A nice head.
