Green Flash Brewing Company Le Freak Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Green Flash Brewing Company Le Freak Ale.
From the Green Flash Brewing Company website:” An ‘out of the box’ modern ale crafted by converging two beer styles, Belgian Trippel and American Imperial IPA. Dry-Hopped and Bottle-Conditioned – it’s a zesty brew with enticing American hop and fruity Belgian yeast aromatics.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head and loads of sticky lacing.
Aroma: Floral and citrus hops up front, sweet malts followed by clove, banana, candy sugar and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Strong hop blast, but nicely layered with sweet malts, candy sugar, banana and cloves.
Overall: With Green Flash Brewing Company’s Le Freak Ale we find the perfect combination of a Belgian Trippel and an American Imperial IPA (as advertised). An enjoyable beer and one that I would buy again and at 9.2% ABV a bomber does the job nicely.
