Notes: Le Freak® is the first-ever hybrid ale of its kind: the convergence of a Belgian-Style Trippel with an American Imperial IPA. This zesty Amarillo dry-hopped, bottle-conditioned marvel entices with fruity Belgian yeast aromatics and a firm, dry finish. Aromas of orange and passion fruit with sweet bready malts, and flavors of orange marmalade and citrus fruit pith. Experience a legendary beer.

1 pt. 6 fl.oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 9.2%. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy, with a big white (or slightly off-white) head. Lovely aroma of Belgian ale yeast, white candi sugar and various spices (incl cloves), hints of leather. The flavour is spicy and zesty with a solid hoppy punch throughout, but I’d never have guessed that the IBU was as high as 101. Mixing Belgian and American ale styles is not always successful, but I think Le Freak is a very good try.

Murky yellow color.

Huge white head; strong lacing throughout.

Clove nose; fresh bread notes as well.

Medium mouthfeel.

Muted clove taste; hops smack your lips with bitterness. Booze well hidden.

Pretty tasty; not life changing.

Pours an opaque orange gold with 2 fingers of off-white, soap bubble foamy, lasting head that leaves wonderful sheets of lacing. Aroma is lemon/lime sherbet, Belgian yeast, banana and hop tones of floral, pine and citrus backed up by sweet caramel malt. Taste is banana pop sickle, hoppy bitter notes of pine and citrus, a menagerie of Belgian yeast and sugar balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Finishes with an odd combination of butter, spice and pepper, Aftertaste is bitter and distinctly chalky. Superbly balance for what is an astronomically complex brew. Touche Green Flash!

[Original rating 2016-01-16] Clear orange gold with a medium white head. Aroma of pepper, stone fruit, grass. Taste is spicy, black pepper, fruit, flowers, very complex. Reminds me of Epic Brainless IPA, but though I like the Epic, Green Flash just does it better in every way.
