For me, La Fin Du Monde is a treat to have. It gives off aromas consisting of orange rinds and freshly baked doughy breads. The brew produces a pure white frothy head that lasts quite a while. The body is quite cloudy due to the yeasts left behind. Every time I take a sip, it feels like I’m biting into candied orange slices, with a moderate ginger spice. This feels a bit chewy at first, but seems to melt in my mouth. This is a greatly refreshing brew. Even with the moderate alcohol content, this could easily be enjoyable on a warm summer evening.

From the Trader Joe's 4-pack 355 mL into a Pinot glass.

A: Murky golden peach in color with a huge head that leads to fine lacing. Excellent color!

S: Loads of Belgian yeast and bread. That yeast gives it wonderful sour undertones once the ale has warmed up. Nice spice, coriander (?), typical Belgian spicy character. Honeysuckle comes through as the brew heats up. Slightly metallic.

T: That load of yeast shines bright on the palate. Lots of butter and honeysuckle. Awesome! No metal comes through, which I was sort of anticipating. A little sweet but very pleasant. Reminds me of a Sunday morning with waffles and butter and fresh strawberries.

M: Awesome! Huge! Great tactile sensation!

D: Once or twice a year is perfect for this one.

WIFE EVEN LIKES THIS IT!

Been hooked on Unibroue and this is next in line. Poured from 750 mL bottle. Pours a light, hazy orange in color, a golden orange if you will. A thick, rocky head first appears and takes its time to settle. Aroma is of sour fruits, yeast, and some sweets. Tastes is wunderbar! A mixture of various fruits (apple, some citrus, and maybe a touch of grape) and a touch of sour. Alcohol is present as well, the first sip leaves a brilliant warm feeling in the mouth. His a slightly creamy mouthfeel to it and goes down smooth leaving a pleasant aftertaste. Like many of Unibroue's other offering only a 4 on drinkability as 2 glass of this can leave your head spinning. A terrific beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: poured semi-opaque golden color from a bottle into a La Fin Du Monde Tulip. Nice 2 finger head with decent retention, which left some mild lacing down the glass.

Smell: yeasty, sweet, clove no real detectable alcohol almost don't beleive this is 9% abv.

Taste: Very smooth with very little detectable hops, slightly sweet, cloves, mildly fruity. Very little detectable alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, clean and refreshing, this is the way a belgium pale should feel.

Drinkability: One of the more drinkable Belgiums I have had despite the formidable ABV.

Great BSPA - one of the best non-Belgian BSPA I have had and better than some imported from Belgium. Another winner from Unibroue.
