This brew pours a beautiful opaque copper/orange with a two finger head which lasts for a while. Some of the head remains on the top of the brew until the end. Good lacing.

The smell is wheat, bananas and cloves. I don't smell too many hops here. Maybe some light piney hops. There is also a bubblegum/yeasty smell.

The taste is citrus hops, wheat, bubblegum, sweet malts and pine. There is also a 'musty' taste similar to what shows up in the smell.

The mouthfeel is thin and creamy, good carbonation. The brew leaves a dry taste in the mouth after swallowing and an oily taste on the tongue.

Overall this brew is pretty plain for something that is called "Le Freak" It does taste as advertised, a cross between a Trippel and an IPA; more Trippel than IPA.
