3.86/5  rDev -4%

Minimal carbonation came in a gift pack with Maudite, Deep golden hazed hue with a fine thin layered white head, speckled texture lines the sides of the glass. Aroma mildly spicy hints of chamomile or lavender something herbal and definite coriander, herbal grassy hops are minimal mainly the yeast spiciness that Belgian style ales are known to offer. Hints of pineapple, spicy coriander mild citrus tones, the rest of the palate is a relatively clean grassiness to finish. Overall a lighter version of a tripel, less alcohol does increase drinkability and there's really no booze left to burn the palate or nares in this one, sometimes I feel La Fin du Monde get's a bit alcohol fueled. Mouthfeel light carbonation compared to most of the Unirbroue ales, medium bodied the yeast spiciness lingers between sips but I find it enjoyable overall not a bad beer. I'm glad I tried it, it's been one of the those beers I always wanted to grab but either there were better options when I did find it or it wasn't available at all.

I could not pass up yet another tripel from Unibroue. Cork topped 750 served in Chimay chalice. Beer pours super pale golden, slightly cloudy, with a nice white head. Sweet aroma, reminiscent of cider -- I really like it. Reminds me of CBC tripel threat, which is awesome. Flavor registers quite a bit lower on the sweetness. Grassy and herbal, with a relatively thin and fizzy mouthfeel, and a hint of sugar in the aftertaste, but still pretty dry. Fantastic balance, actually. I don't think it has the depth of flavor of La Fin Du Monde, but it has every bit as much drinkability and more. Quite a delicious treat.
