Poured in into tulip glass. Date marked on bottle.

A- pours a deep yellow almost gold color with a nice fluffy head that fades to a thin cap; minimal lacing; cloudy

S- a hint of lemon pepper mixed with bready flavors; orange

T- starts off dry but then opens up with a citrus peel bitterness mixed with citrus juice sweetness and ends with a hint of hops and alcohol; a really well balanced yet complex sip

M- great feel; not too thin and not overly carbonated; the aftertaste is delightful and not overly dry

D- i really enjoy the style but i don't love it so matter the beer these points usually drop a bit; it's also 9%, but really well hidden

Pours a hazy, unfiltered yellow/orange color, Large white head, settles fairly quickly. This has a sweet somewhat fruity aroma, very bready, almost like a witbier, but with out the orange peel. Taste has faint notes of dried fruit, maybe even some oak? It also hides the alcohol quite well. Mouthfeel seems to start off somewhat fizzy, but finishes rather smooth. Drinkability is quite high, as this is a very well balanced brew. Definitly recommended.

Served in a tulip. This bottle has been cellared for about 6 months.

I have tasted Fin Du Monde in the past and I was very impressed.

This experience was slightly different. It's a great beer, but I have tasted other tripels since for comparison.

The beer poured a four fingered head. Beautiful light tan color.

The smell from the head is lemon with a strong clove scent.
The smells get stronger with warming.

The mouthfeel is slightly carbonated but pleasant.

The taste is excellent- strong cloves and lemon, but a bit tart and slightly bitter. I recall slight bitterness in my last tasting, but for some reason, it seemed more pronounced this time. A friend who was drinking with me also shared the last session with Fin De Monde, and felt that it didn't taste as good as the last time.
Not sure, but the cellaring could have had an effect- but the beer should have tasted better with slight aging.

Overall, a great tripel. Recently, I tried the St. Bernardus tripel, which is much smoother and more malty than the fin. I also like the Allagash tripel. So when it comes to tripels, one of my favorite styles, it is best to try a lot of them and rotate tastings.

Appearance - The head on this beer is almost impossible to contain. Retention is oaky, with hardly any lace. Pale straw colored (almost like a wit), with suspended yeast visible in the beer.

Smell - Chalky or dry yeast smell followed with light spicy aroma.

Taste - Some dried fruit flavor, with crisp spices. The beer is actually pretty dry, and the hops seem to play this up. The alcohol is almost undetectable.

Mouthfeel - Quite fizzy, which adds to the delight. Pretty smooth overall, with a little tang to mix things up.

Drinkability - This is a beer that feels good to drink. I expected a hard hit in the back of the throat due to the carbonation, but it goes down quite easily.

Comments - Pretty to look at, tastes great, likely to help you pick up chicks... What more could you possibly want? Seriously, this is a very good beer. This should be on every beer lovers must-have list.
