4.25/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into my La Fin Du Monde tulip glass from a bottle.

Appearance is a hazy apricot yellow hue, with a generous sized white head that takes a while to recede. Thin flecks of lacing trail down from the sides of the glass. Lots of fine, fizzy bubbles can be seen buzzing up from the bottom to the top. A delightful bouquet of smells is present in the nose, including some citrus rind, apple and that zingy banana at the end. Just a great smelling brew.

A nice sweet kick to start off, followed by the smooth malty backbone and fruity esters. There's a pleasant breadiness to it as it transitions to banana and cloves, then rounds out with a slight tinge of bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste. You can really feel the alcohol warming your mouth and gullet after you've finished your sip. It's remarkably enjoyable. Mouthfeel is nice and well-bodied, with those little fizzy bubbles providing just the right amount of carbonation to make the entire experience really quite nice.

Drinkability is great, thanks to the delectable taste and mouthfeel, which are tempered by the hefty 9% ABV. La Fin Du Monde is the beer that first got me into drinking craft and I wanted to give it justice in my review, because it is a very worthy example and is quite deserving of all the accolades. Even now, it's just as good as I remember it was the first time around. That's the mark of a great brew.

New York

4.25/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy, straw-golden body. Generous champagne-fizzy head gives way to a modest cap with some lacing.
Smell: Crisp clean sweet malt, rich yeastiness, citrus notes: orange, grapefruit. Spice hops and a goodly whiff of alcohol.
Taste: Sweet grainy/malty sweetness with citrus and sweet fruits to start, fizzy but still rich at the top, dries with yeasty/citrus acidity, hop spiciness and even some banana in the aftertaste. All very clean and balanced. Alcohol level lies in wait and springs on you at the end.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied malt, delightfully tingly carbonation, yeast/citrus pucker.
Drinkability: Delicious... alcohol level is surprisingly treacherous.
