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.

2009 bottle, Iím told: Musty pear, apricot, and wheat malt, surprisingly bready for Green Flash. Hazy orange, medium yellow lacing head. Apple, shortbread, grapefruit flavor with hints of banana and pear as well. Lemon zest and apricot finish. Alcohol is well concealed. Fantastically complex, with ill defined transitions. Muddled, but oh so wonderfully delicious. Extremely unique. I swear I thought I rated this before, but I never remember anything tasting quite like this, and this is memorable. Maybe this is one of those beers that absolutely must be aged.

Pale amber with lasting foamy white lacy head; mmedicinal aroma that is soft sweet and spicy it remind me of lemon fresh Pledge Flava is yeasty with grainy and fruity notes fading into spicy hoppy bitterness; feels medium and fizzy; finishes dry and hoppy

Pours a slightly hazed apricott color w/ a tall creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aromas of bitter sweet citrus and tropical spice. Full nectar w/ superb carbonation for a soft, semi creamy texture. This brew has a high pulp thickness w/ a very strict aspirin bittering component that sticks like a rabid ground squirl on a pigs back. Flavors are topical and citrusy w/ a fresh squeezed mild sweetness that tries to tame this bitter beast. The finish is long and bitter sweet. It really leaves an impression on me.

Bronze, orange-ish tone, strong but not overwhelming, taste wins over kick. Belgian comes through, pour from a bottle to a glass, great head on each pour, drink this now!

Strong and pleasant floral, yeast, and coriander aromas. Pours a cloudy pale orange colour. There is a thick white head that dissapates into a thin layer of foam. The hops can definitely be tasted, but the beer also has a medium sweetness to it. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. Overall a fantastic and interesting beer!

This beer.....this beer. What is it?! Itís two beers? Itís one beer?? Itís a trippel itís an imperial IPA?? Itís both blended so perfectly you couldnít even tell. Lets just start with popping the lid. Massive sweet aroma from the belgian yeast followed immediately by the hops from the IPA. Can I get a balancing act?? Iím getting hot and bothered. As this warms up it just gets more complex and even better. Upon tasting it just punches your face with the massive hop bitterness but switches gears on you with the trippel. Just so damn balance and so dry and so incredibly good. This thing will just annihilate you in the best way. This is how beer should taste. Itís flawless. Just go get it NOW.
