“The end of the world.” I poured this beer into a unibroue tulip I have enjoyed this beer in the past but never considered a review until now.

The first impression of this beer in a glass is that of a cross between a run-o-the-mill american pilsener and champagne. It froths like crazy and truly looks “refreshing.” But there is no cheap macro-swill here, this is high end stuff.

The initial smell is spicy, yeasty, somewhat belgian white, even more malt base to form the strong pale ale frame. The taste is predominantly vanilla, coriander malts and a bitterness to add balance from the hops. This is crucial because it balances the sweetness that would otherwise be over-present. One other thing that balances the sweetness is the alcohol content. At times it is present, and at other times it is not so up front. The finish is wonderfully spiced, dry herbal spiced, (coriander, some citrus oil not nutmeg and cinnamon) and vanilla. With a warming effect.

This is really nice in what it is trying to accomplish, its up there with Duvel, etc.; and is certainly less sweet than some of the Belgians. If beginners into craft beer could get by the high alcohol, this certainly is a beverage that could tease and convert the casual drinker to explore craft and Belgian beer.

Pale peachy hue with honey highlights, hazy, some animation is noticeable, the white head was smaller than I expected; maybe a finger in height and the retention was passable. A loose cap remains throughout the consumption. The lacing is sub-par. The nose is fruity: mangos, passion fruit, and kiwi. Pepper and clove undercurrents. Alcohol hints at the back. The mustiness is noticeable throughout. The potency is modest. I was expecting more but what the nose needed the palate had and then some. The taste was splendid; simply divine with a glimpse of mango and pear fruitiness upfront that is very quickly overwhelmed by spicy alcohol, pepper, cloves, and surprisingly strong yeastiness. Some candied sugar sweetness but it cannot overcome the finish, which is tart (a green apple influence), spicy and peppery as well but with a blend of malty-bread too. The alcohol is very naked and taunting, maybe a little too much so, if it was softer the complexities would not be as drowned out. The palate is very tasty nevertheless. I detect cloves and apples in the aftertaste with a sharp peppery kick on the tongue, interesting! The body is medium with high carbonation, appropriate, very cleansing and refreshing, which is hard to do with such a high abv. Nicely dry as well. La Fin Du Mode is supremely drinkable and quite a pleasant quaff. It has been well worth the wait… I scored a 750 ml of this dandy in Kansas City. Obliviously it is recommended but I might be the last person on earth to try it.
