Picked up a bottle while visiting New Brunswick. The government liquor store had a god awful craft beer selection with little to no Belgian styles not to mention awful canadian alcohol prices. For that reason I was inclined to focus my attention to the two unibroues, la fin du monde and maudite. The price was cheap because it was a domestic only $5 as opposed to $10ish back stateside for the pint and a half. So i raced home, poured her into a tulip and let the games begin.
A- light caramel brown, very cloudy with almost no light coming through, as if I were deep in an amber ocean looking up at the sun. A bubbly foamy head about 2.5 fingers thick immediately says hello. Although I was only able to get a few quick tastes of this moderate to highly carbonated hat before she vanished. No lacing on this one as I made my way to the bottom of the glass.
S- The nose was great. Obviously belgian yeast with spices, banana, and other fruits hitting a home run in your face. A bit tart which makes me suspicious and hopeful for a sour ale. We shall see.
T- The first taste makes me very happy with my decision. Though lacking that sourness I half expected a fruity, crisp, spicy fountain soaks my taste buds with pleasure. The alcohol is hidden fantastically and before I know it I've finished my first glass and had a smile on my face (8%). Citrus with spices and bread aftertaste. Beautiful.
MF: Full and carbonated. Not a huge fan of high carbonation but the taste really compliments the bubble. Good for sipping or drinking!
Overall: Slam dunk of a beer and will surely be buying again. Very true to the belgian style and though a quite unique undertaking of a brew.
