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.

A 0.5L bottle at Pikkulintu. Soft mild hoppy nose. Pale head. Slightly hazy golden yellow/orange colour. More than average hoppiness. More IPA than a abbey tripel. At the end hops bite.

1pt6oz bottle. A nice mix of bitter and sweet. It retains the long bitterness of an ipa but there remains a sense of the familiar belgian yestiness and sweetness. I find the combination to create something not quite IPA and not quite trippel. Iím not sure if itís truly successful, but it most certainly is not bad.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
[2087-20090410] 1pt6floz bottle. Sweaty pine resin aroma with evergreen trunk sap notes. Hazy, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Heavy grass-stained tree trunks with tons of pithy citrus and a long bitter aftertaste. Full body seems chewy. Packs a bitter punch, but doesnít quite get it together in the end.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 (Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-06-10) Orange and cloudy. Medium sized and almost white head. Fruity, sweet and hoppy aroma. Full bodied and little bit dry palate with medium carbonation. Fruitiness, yeast, hops, grass, citiricness, light sweetness and bitterness in taste. Fruity and harshly bitter aftertaste. 8-3-8-3-14=3.6

(Re-rate, bottle, 0.355 l, from Alko Arkadia, 20130219) This beer wasnít cloudy but only a bit hazy. The harsh bitterness wasnít present - yet. Still not so much better that an increase to the score would feel right.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Poured a darker gold. Nose was spicy, floral and citrus hops. Some candy sweetness. Flavor was a strange mix of belgian yeast character and C hops. Nice caramel malt sweetness and a not so overwhelming alcohol presence eventually balanced out the yeast/hop medley. Probably one of the best executions of a style i donít really care for (belgian IPA).

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2009
(Bottled) Pale copper with a smallish, but firm head. Aroma of some warming alcohol, soft spiciness, some lemon and raisins. Spicy-alcoholic flavor with toffee maltiness and low bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Canít really get the IPA from this, but nevertheless itís an ok, spicy tripel with lots of maltiness.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2009
bottled@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Golden colour, small beige head. Aroma is hops, quite much Belgian tripel with fruity and lots of sweet fruityness. Flavour is at first veyr typical fruity and yeasty Belgian tripel with a big kicking grassy, flowery and fruity kick in the sftertaste. Very pleasant stuff.
