Virgil’s Beer of the Week

Our good friend Virgil Dickerson from Suburban Home Records returns with another pick for our weekly segment known so beautifully and simply as: Virgil’s Beer of the Week.


This week, Virgil brings you Green Flash’s Le Freak Belgian Style IPA.

Green Flash Brewing Company is becoming one of those breweries I have to try pretty much anything they put out. I don’t know if I’ve had anything by them that I haven’t considered to be absolutely amazing. Take Le Freak for example. It’s an Imperial Pale Ale combined with a Belgian Style Trippel. This combination has been tried by other breweries with mixed results. I can say without hesitation that this is the beer that all others of that style will be measured by. Le Freak excels when others falter because of the beer’s ability to perfectly combine these styles. The beer is well balanced and absolutely delicious. It’s kind of like the Wall of Sound on your taste buds. The beer is huge clocking in at 9.2 % ABV. If you ever find yourself needing a refreshing change from your favorite Imperical IPA or Belgian Trippel, look no further than Le Freak. Damn, this beer is amazing.


This Week’s Contest: Like I’ve done before, I offer up a contest whereby you guess what pint glass is in the photo next to the Green Flash Le Freak. Correctly guess the the name of the beer on the pint glass and you can win a record of your choice from Suburban Home Records. Good Luck. Send your answers to One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the correct guesses.
