La Fin Du Monde was Unibroue's attempt at a Duvel style beer in the mid 1990's, and by all accounts it was a good one. I have had La Fin Du Monde a number of times but only just recently realized I hadn't rated it.
Poured into a Duvel tulip with a large aggressively carbonated offwhite head. The head receded to a smaller cap but a steady stream of bubbles ensures it has some longevity. The beer itself, depending on how it is poured is either a crystal clear or semi opaque dark golden colour.
The smell is BIG and beautiful. Oranges, pears, yeast and some corriander. The taste is similarly bold, with strong sweetness, fruit and a drying hoppyness. The alcohol is well disguised in the taste but you have no trouble noticing it as it warms your stomach on the way down. The added yeast is also apparent.. more so than in a beer like Duvel, and I find it limits drinkability.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. A pleasure to hold in the mouth.
Drinkability is average. A single beer of this style and strength is generally enough for me.
