look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

Poured from 1 Pt 9.4 fl. oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Nice clean golden color;nice moderate lacing; one inch white soapy head...looked nice & clean and refeshing.

S - Yeast,floral,coriander,citrus(orange peel, lemon); no real booze smell, evenwith the high ABV

T - Citrus(Orange peel,lemon),yeast,malt,subtle spice,slightly sour finish, but not in an unpleasant way

M -high carbonation, was expecting a heavier feel, but was not dissapointed with the lighter mouthfeel

D - went down smooth, was quite refreshing, could be an all day/night beer if it wasn't for the high ABV. if you use it as a session beer, do not even look at a car....it goes down so nice that you can have too much without even knowing it!
