Bottle purchased from Huckleberry's in Spokane. Poured a cloudy gold color, with a big white head. The aroma is a blend of spices, citrus fruit, and bready yeast. The taste is a delightful blend of fruitiness and champagne like flavors, with a spiciness that balanced well with the lighter aspects of the beer. The high level of alcohol is detected at the end of the sip, betrayed by its warming. I can't really recomend this as a session beer, unless you find the idea of the local authorities pulling you out of the sewer in a comatose condition appealing to you. That, and the beer is surprisingly heavy for its appearance and taste. Still, it is a magnificent beer. Tis is just more proof that a trip to Quebec is in order.

La Fin Du Monde....The End of the World

A: Cloudy yellow in color with a medium head that fades down to a ring around the edge with a pad on top.

S: Lots of aroma here. Tons of malty yeasty sweetness, with bubble gum, clove, banana and tart apples leading the way.

T: Very easy drinking brew for the ABV. Starts off with the nice yeasty sweetness that was apparent in the aroma. I taste candy sugar, lemon rind, and it finishes with the tartness of fresh green Granny Smith Apples.

M: Medium bodied, yet light. Very smooth drinking beer.

D: Goes down rather smooth, I picked up the little bottle this go around but could and have put down the 750 ml rather easily.

Overall: La Fin Du Monde translates in English to "The End of the World” this beer is not the end all be all of beer, but if I happened to be drinking it on my judgment day I would be a happy man.

Every country has their brewers who try to recreate Belgium's best and Unibroue does it consistently brew after brew....Canada should be proud. Along with Maudite these two beers are perfect examples, yet different than the best that Belgium has to offer. I have had several dozen bottles of this beer and every time it leaves me all warm and fuzzy, especially those 750 ml. It is relatively cheap, and ohh soo good... eh? God love Canada for this one.

4.25/5  rDev -1.6%

Pouring into a chalice resulted in a hazzy yellow/gold character, with a finger of white, short lived head.

Slightly bready aroma with a hint of spices. A trace of alcohol is also detectable from the smell.

Very bold flavor. Some yeasty flavors, some flowery flavors, a minor sweetness and a hint of spice, backed up by a hint of alcohol. Alcohol has a nice warming characteristic when swallowed. A little bit extra carbonation seems to be present for me.

Thoroughly enjoyable, though probably more in moderation than in a session. Half way through a single 341ml bottle I had already begun to feel an alcohol buzz. Something for those miserable fall/winter days perhaps?

A- hazy golden orange with a fluffy white head.

S- very sweet and fruity. most notable aroma is of apricot and yeast.

T- starts off sweet and fruity, similar to a hefe. finish has some mild hop bitterness. mild alcohol aftertaste

M- medium to thick feel. a little chewy with a a nice balance of carbonation, but still very smooth.

D- dangerously easy to drink @ 9%.

overall- where is that 9% hiding at? besides the very faint hint of alcohol in the aftertaste, its very similar to a beefed up hefe. very smooth with a hint of hops makes for a very enjoyable beer.
