Ah, La Fin du Monde. I've held off reviewing because I have a really hard time separating out specific aromas and flavors with this one. We'll give it a go. Poured, as usual, into a Duvel tulip.

A - Hazy, burnt orange. A flat-topped 2-finger foam head forms and is retained very well, leaving nice, if somewhat spotty, lacing behind.

S - Citrus, baked bread, and slightly funky yeast, none of it overpowering.

T - Everything present in the nose is present here, but a touch more refined. Generic citrus becomes mild grapefruit and tangerine, the baked bread is now a piping hot wheat loaf, etc. Also there is a hint of cloves and black pepper, presumably from the yeast.

M and D - Creamy, medium body with consistent carbonation and a dry, slightly hot finish due to the otherwise-masked ABV. Very easy to drink.

This is a go-to, readily available beer, and I really like it, but I don't love it. Not at all sure why it rates as the best Tripel here, although it is markedly better than most US brewers' attempts at the style. Give me Westmalle or Cinq Cents any day. I need to proper reviews for those soon.
