Poured easy from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: 4.5) Even with an easy pour a good two finger head, off white, thin and foamy, quickly dissipated. Had to pour in several steps to allow the head to recede. Color is liquid gold opaque enough that I could not see through it, but when held to the light gave a pleasant glow. Bubbles race up the sides from first pour to middle of the glass.
S: 4.0) Smell like a good Wit. Bananas and bread with a bit of spice on the follow through. There' s more fruit in there but at the moment I can't quite pick it out ( damn sinus infection) apples perhaps or pears.
M: 3.75) Fair to middlin', an abundance of carbonation makes this beer feel light and airy. But after letting it sit on the tongue for a moment it thickens a bit.
T: 4.75) As the nose suggest bread, bananas and spice dominate. With sweet and tart green apples on the finish. After swallowing bananas and bread remain in the aftertaste for some time. The 9% ABV is undetectable to my tastes.
O: 4.5) Truly excellent. A bit more carbonation than what I prefer, but that is my only gripe. Yet another excellent brew from Unibroue that is suitable for all weather and/or occasions.

A very good tripel. Not quite as good as the St Bernardus in my single tasting of each, but very enjoyable and I'd order it often.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle is dated 11/10/12.

A slow pour yields a 2-finger creamy off-white head sitting atop a hazy honey-colored body. The head comes recedes after a couple minutes to form a nice dusting and thick ring around the edge. The lacing attempts to hold onto the glass, but falls victim to gravity and only thickens the foam ring throughout consumption.

Green banana, pear, and golden apple aromas mingle nicely with a sweet maltiness and clove spiciness.

Black grapes and grapefruit up front. A light but sweet peppery maltiness fills in. The sip then ends with lemon and green sour apple. A dry bready aftertaste follows in after a minute or two.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer washes over your tongue nicely, delivers its pleasurable flavors, then finishes without being watery.

The flavors are bold but not overwhelming, as La Fin Du Monde would pair nicely with a number of foods. I, however, prefer to enjoy this beer by itself, so that no foreign flavors can interrupt my enjoyment.

Drinking Date: 1/8/11
Expiration Date: 6/21/13

Glassware: Tulip

Appearance: pale golden color with a white head that did not pour really thick but stayed around for the whole beer. Patchy lacing all down the glass.

Smell: Sweet and fruity with a yeast aroma as well.

Taste: Very complex flavor with alot of nuances to be enjoyed. A spicy, even reminiscient of pepper, taste was always poking through the sweet flavor of the beer. A yeasty or bread-like flavor was present. Also, The alcohol contributes positively to the taste...warming as it goes and having a cleansing effect on the mouth.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied; lots of tingly carbonation; and a pleasant cleansing from the alcohol. Feels good...

Drinkability: Stays interesting in flavor for the whole drink. High alcohol and complex taste makes this a beer to be enjoyed singly.

Notes: Recommended. This is a beer to be sipped and enjoyed slowly.
