Pours a hazy gold with a small tight white head. Plenty of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is mostly of apple and some pear with light spices.

Tastes of the apple with the spice following and some creamy alcoholic flavors. A lot of fruity esters with the peppery spiciness. The alcohol is masked well enough to not burn, but still is present.

Mouthfeel is full and creamy and has a dry finish.

Pours a cloudy yellow/amber, fine white head. Mild lacing. Aroma is bright and juicy.. estery apples, melon, candied fruits, caramel, maybe a hint of lemon, and just a little bit of bitters and malts linger in the background. Smells like a Belgian. You can tell its got some good potency. Getting excited..

This is delicious. Really, really tasty stuff. Bright, juicy fruits combine with a floral bouquet and just a hint of the buttered-biscuit malty goodness you expect with these Belgians. The juiciness is out of control complex, and it's hard to pinpoint it exactly- is that guava nectar, honey melon? Sweet and delicious. Nectar of the gods. Sugary tropical goodness.

Moderate in the body, it has a bit of a sticky, dry mouthfeel...which makes it extremely drinkable. All in all a very pleasurable "Belgian" experience.

750 From the Coop for about $7 .. poured into my Kasteel tulip .. enjoyed while cooking for our New Years Eve party.

Short lasting white head that left nice lacing.. brew is the slightest hazy golden yellow.

Aroma is incredible... slightly spicy and complex fruits ... White peaches.. significant white pepper and lite clove.. My nose is too uneducated to pick through and identify alot.. but trust me, it smells great.

Front of the palate lends itself toward the spicy notes.. mid palate is peaches and tropical fruit... alot of Belgian yeastiness with a lingering sweetness.. not cloying, but present.

I've had this brew a bunch over the years and am always quite suprised that it's this good.... special for sure.

Unibroue may very well be my favorite brewery, and ever since I was first blown away by Trois Pistoles, I've gone back to their beers ever since. Tonight will be my first La Fin Du Monde in quite awhile though. I can't wait.

APPEARANCE: Poured (fittingly) into my Unibroue tulip. Pale golden straw in color with slight orange highlights. A rocky white head sits atop but falls somewhat quickly to just a fraction of itself. The half inch head that remains holds very well though, and tops the beer off nicely. No lacing to speak of, however.

SMELL: The smell is of pungent Belgian yeast along with citrus (predominantly orange), coriander and spice, golden raisin, and barely, some leafy hop aromas. The breadiness overpowers the other aromas ever so slightly, but overall, this beer smells great.

TASTE: Starts very bready, but the malt quickly shines with a prominent caramelness. Intense hiccups of sweet orange occasionally pop up. The finish is a little on the dry side but retains the yeasty and malty sweetness.

MOUTHFEEL: A sharp carbonation greets you at first sip and develops into a creamy medium-full body. Just right.

DRINKABILITY: Very easy. The dryness hinders it just a bit, but you wouldn't guess 9%, so it hides it fairly well. This is the perfect beer for a mild spring evening like tonight.

La Fin Du Monde really holds its own in the Belgian Strong Pale category despite the serious competition at the top. I will absolutely revisit this beer again and again.
