Sampled from a 12oz bottle at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe in Lake Buena Vista (aka Orlando), FL with a best before date of 08-06-2006. I think I safely made it before this one went bad, but it was close. JK. Oh and they had the proper glassware for both La Fin Du Monde & Blanche De Chambly.

Poured a hazy, opaque pale yellow-orange with a big, foamy white head. Each sample left streams of lacing all around the glass, but they had some trouble with gravity.

Very fragrant. Roasted malt, yeast, citrus, esters, fruit, and caramel candy all over the nose. There were more scents I couldn't pick out. Very complex, yet very alluring and enticing. The scents could draw you to the end of the world, which is what the name means. (Even says so on the back label.)

The taste is just as complex and enticing as the nose. The pleasure begins with sweet roasted malt and citrus flavors that glide into yeast, dough, and orange savory elements that then dance on your tongue into esters and ever so slight hops for the finish. Medium to medium-full body and a clean finish and transition. A truly wonderful beer and a first rate, top notice contender.

One of the better beers I've had to date. Definitely in the top 20.

A smooth, drinkable beer that has a fruity flavor and pleasant aftertaste.The beer is high in alcohol, but upon drinking it, you don't really taste due to its fruitiness. A pleasant beer to drink once in a while, but it's not a brew to drink on a regular basis.

This beer goes down smooth and tastes fantastic. The alcohol is hidden well, but watch out the 9% will sneak up on you after you have had a couple. Florida has recently started stocking this beer at the regular sales locations and I recommend it to any beer lover. Good for most all pallets.
