Finally, La Fin Du Monde. One of the best beers ever made.

Appearance: hazy like a weissebier. It has an undercurrent like a properly prepared Black and Tan. Thick head dissipates into 1/8" thick pure white foam. Lacing is nearly ideal for the style. Particulates are present. Has legs.

Smell: sweet, slightly chalky texture, then incredible and utterly complex. Nectar of the gods.

Taste: think of the best hefeweisen you ever tasted. It's better. It's insanely sweet then drifts into the palate like nothing else on the planet. It changes character as it descends, first sweet wheat beer-like, then hot boozy then it gives off a light-sweet-tangerine essence for 10 seconds and then it's gone in a lingering sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: coating and filling, almost to the point of cloying but not annoyingly so. Medium cabonation prevents over-saturation.

Drinkability: As good as it is...it is another deceivingly smooth high ABV beer. You might try to session it but you'd fail. Simply enjoy it in extreme moderation.

La Fin Du Monde is quite simply one of the best beers ever made. I highly recommend it.

Slightly Sour.
Lemony.
Just a touch of bitterness to it.
Not too hoppy.

Is a higher ABV beer, but doesn't taste boozy. It is a lot mellower than you would expect it to be.

It is nice and clear, has a slight head to it. Nice color, bright.

Bottle and label are attractive.
