4.18/5  rDev -3.2%

750 ML into a tulip/ Best before 2-16-12

P: Looks like an unfiltered, kind of dull, light gold color with a huge head of pearly white foam that is thick and pillowy. Shows great retention and leaves a nice amount of lace plastered on the side of the glass, though.

A: Smells like toasted malts, orchard fruits, cloves, and yeast. This has an impressive amount of power and strength, but doesn't quite reach the level of the top-tier tripels, in my humble opinion.

T: The flavor, however, comes much closer to reaching greatness. There is a superb balance in this beer that makes it really enjoyable to drink. The malts are lightly-toasted and have that smooth, barley-and-oat cereal grain type of character to them. The fruits aren't nearly as explosive as they are in other tripels, but the flavors of ripe bananas, pink apples, and pears taste bright and delicious. The yeasty cloves impart a nice amount of spiciness that jabs the tongue and rounds this brew out nicely.

M: Medium-bodied with a sharp and clean, crisp and smooth type of feel. But, I've gotta dock points here because, like every other Unibroue beer that I've had, it's way over-carbonated. The prickly bite gets a bit distracting the deeper I get into the bottle, which I guess is my only real complaint.

Notes: La Fin Du Monde is definitely firmly entrenched on the 'refined' side rather than the 'explosive' side of the tripel category. There are others that are more explosively fruity, spicy, and powerful. But, this is a very well-made beer that stays in perfect balance throughout. Nice melding of harmonious flavors that make this quite enjoyable. I really wish Unibroue would ease up on the carbonation, but it deserves all of the praise that it gets, nonetheless. Recommended

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.
