Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a very hazy deep gold/orange with soapy off-white head. Aroma is very interesting, some farm house, some funk, lots of citrus, light honey with a nice malt back bone. Flavor is malty, hoppy, slight funk, nice citrus bite, light sweetness, earthy and some nice bitterness. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with lively carbonation. Overall, a very interesting and tasty beer. I enjoyed!

bit of a dry taste but delicious. I would go with a real triple instead. but worth a try.

I generally dont like IPAs, but I thought the hoppiness added a really interesting flavour to the Belgian style. I really like this beer, and think it would go well with any meal - it would match a nice dinner just as well as an outdoor picnic.

daknole (10961) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Nice orange pour with a medium sized white head. Sweet malt, honey, almonds, cookies and fruit aroma. Flavor is fucking great. Malty but a bitter finish. Flavors of light wood, honey, syrup, sweet hops, golden raisins. Damn good brew. DAMN GOOD!

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2010
On tap at Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA): Pours out clear, rich dark gold, with a two-finger, platinum blonde head and good retention. I gave a five for appearance, and I hardly ever do that for anything other than a stout. Nose of cream and fall green apples. Creamy medium body balanced with a nice level of carbonation. Flavors of light citrus, orange peel, and chewy pine. Im also getting hints of butterscotch (but more so toffee) with each subsequent sip. Drinkability: Imaginative and pleasing. Pairing: creme brulee, lobster, sauteed salmon. Rebuy: Yes. #304 on 26022010, DG.

Bottle.

Coming on the heels of 3767 a few days ago, this one had a hard road to hoe as a Belgian-IPA fusion out of SD. But it acquitted itself well. Wonderful candied citrus aroma and flavors, nice honey in the nose, splendidly drinkable (Id have thought 7.2% not 9.2%), never sticky or cloying, never abrasive. Another winner from Green Flash, definitely worth revisiting.

Green Flash Le Freak Pours light honey colored with a thin white head that dissipates to a film from then on. Somewhat hazy appearance. Aroma of citrus and yeast with honey and a slight hop note. Taste is IPAish as it warms, but not as much at cooler temperatures. There is some floral Belgian yeastiness and a citrus tang to it. Slightly bitter finish that lingers. Interesting and improved as it warmed.
