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.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a dark gold color with a tinge of orange and a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both average. Aroma is citrusy (grapefruit) and pine hops, cloves, and some tropical fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like pine and citrusy hops, peppery spice, Belgian yeast and a bit of tropical fruit and cloves. Also has a good bitter hoppy finish. The taste does start off very hoppy, but it does balance out as the fruit flavor shows up more as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit dry and is well carbonated. Drinkability is good, the alcohol is well hidden and its not hard to drink at all. I think this is a good overall brew, I enjoyed it.

Its hard not to like the offerings of Green Flash. Le Freak is one of the better tripels Ive enjoyed recently and further cinches my high regard for Green Flash. Le Freak is a really nice tripel full of fruit notes, light spices, yeast and some residual sweetness that pleases my sweetooth. The perfumy aroma mingles well with the cloves and pitted fruits and seemed to be the strength of the beer. Easy to finish the bottle, even with the >9% alcohol. A nice example of a tripel.

Bomber purchased at Rozis in Lakewood. Aroma is a blend of fresh aromatic hops, with a slight backing of soft belgian yeast. The flavor is equally as double sided, hoppy at the front but showing a more robust sweat-bready flavor at the end.

Bottle. Hazed amber pour with a tall, off-white, frothy head. Aroma is spicy hops, spices, citrus fruits, dusty yeast and dried fruit notes. Taste is strong spices, spicy and citrusy hops, Belgian yeast, citrus fruit, light pine, caramel, sweet malt, and floral notes. Body is medium with a creamy, but full carbonation. Ends with more spices, spicy and floral hops, light toffee, citrus peel, pine needles, bitter hop, caramel, malt backbone and Belgian yeast. Nice mixing of the styles.

22oz from WLV Liquors. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head that mostly fades away. The biscuity belgian notes become stronger with the temperature of it rising in my glass. Next to those doughy malts are citrus and pine a touch of spice and grass. Sweet trippel like flavors, though Id just think it was a sweet DIPA. Citrus and grassy pine flavors are ok, but Id like more of them with the sweetness. Touch of alcohol in the finish. Overall not bad, im not too keen on the choice of hops here. I think that could have made a big difference.

Bought a bomber of this here in Denver on a recommendation. Man is this good. Pours a dark straw color with a thin white head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is very faint and sweet, smelly slight Belgian. I dont really detect any american hops in the nose, which isnt good or bad considering the hybrid style. The taste is fantastic. I can taste the Trippel coming through with a good hop bite and bitterness form the pale ale. This beer has a very long finish as the bitterness lingers on your tongue. Great beer.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2009
22oz bomber served in a Livery trappist glass. Cloudy, glowing orange pour with a thin head of off-white foam that quickly faded away. Spotty lacing. The aroma consisted of pale malt, soapy pine, and citrus. The flavor featured upfront citrus and pine bitterness, followed by some light candi sugar, pale malt, and also some bready yeast. The yeast is pretty clean if they were trying for a Belgian feel. Full-bodied and lightly carbonated. This one didnt really do much for me. Not bad, but just boring and uninteresting.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 aroma is hops, candy sugar and yeast. hop aroma is quite grassy with light citrus. body is pale straw yellow, a sharp blonde. flavor is huge hop bitterness with a backbone of the soft yeast which is a huge contrast. bitterness lingers and hit of booze rides out long as well. mouthfeel is soft and comforting. this beer is like firecrackers going off all around you, i want to cover my head and hide or maybe even cry. this beer is quite easy to rate as the flavors are so outright and this is obviously even better then the chouffe which is already top 10 for me.

On tap from Downtown Johnny Browns in San Diego. Pours deep gold with a thick creamy white head. Floral aroma. Honeysuckle. Sweet malty body with a good stiff bitterness. Just a parching level of hops to this beer. Floral tones persist throughout this brew. Thick lacing rings. Incredible.

Herbal hoppiness, booze & some brown sugar maltiness in the nose. Flavor is dominated by a strong American hop bitterness, some citrus & brown sugar. Mostly its just bitter.
